Pan Seared Smoked Burgers

JMSetzlerJMSetzler Posts: 75

I decided to give the Myron Mixon "Whistler Burger" technique a try this weekend and was pleasantly surprised with the results.  These burgers had a fantastic flavor and a single chunk of peach wood in the kamado provided the perfect level of smoke.  I typically don't cook my burgers to a well done status because I prefer medium.  In this video, these burgers are well done.  If you wanted to go to a medium level on these, just let them smoke at 300 degrees for 20 minutes or so or until you have a good medium temp reading from an instant read thermometer...

    Looks good!  Sort of a reverse sear for the burger.  Do you cook indirect at 300?  I couldn't quite tell if there is an indirect piece in your kamodo.  

    Never mind...went "full screen" and now I see the indirect piece.  ;)

    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    Yes... indirect over the heat deflector.  I'm excited about trying this method again also.
