Burgers - following the crowd

BigWaderBigWader Posts: 670

With all the posting about burgers lately I changed my original plan to do Clay's Pulled Beef and decided to grind the chuck instead and make burgers.  Got a burger press for Christmas so this was the maiden voyage.  Following the burger lab theory - these are 6 oz - 100% beef, no fillers, no egg, and only lightly seasoned with DP Raising the Steaks before hitting the grill.

 Ran the egg about 450 - raised direct with no added wood.

The buns were too big but the fresh beef flavour was really good.  Wish I had done cheese on mine but the overall result was way better than boxed frozen which is the usual way burgers have been done here. Not again if I have the time!

    Nice looking burgers.  Can't beat fresh ground beef.

    Nice looking burgers! Can you tell me more about your burger press please.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    @cazzy - it's from William Sonoma - a stuffed burger press.  instructions call for 8 oz per burger but I thought 6 was fine.  The meat stuck until I put the wax paper on the top and bottom

    The forum I think.  I couldn't fix it.  I wouldn't mind a tall can of Wellington like that... but my hand looks like I'm having a reaction to something.

    You can edit/resize your pic's in photobucket to 800x whatever but it's a pain. That's a fine brew....breakfast of champions
