Brisket Burgers on Friday Night (With Pictures)

My wife is not a fan of ground beef something about the texture so when she's home and we all want burgers we usually end up at Whole Foods for their beef selection.

When I was there I saw the brisket flat with a good fat cap and I told her "I'm sure you'll like this"   So I told the butcher ground me up some of that and he said "Can I come home with you guys to eat this?"

I laughed but the statement after tasting them couldn't have been more true.  Anyhow, on with the pictures.   Here are some ground brisket burgers.  Each one was roughly 1/3 of a lb and rubbed down with Todd's Dirt that I got in the rub/sauce exchange.


The burgers were cooked over 425 with some hickory chunks mixed in with the lump.

I must say the organic American Cheese doesn't melt as well but it sure does taste better than the Kraft stuff.


My plated picture.   Normal toppings of ketchup and mayo.  Some cheese fries before I poured some ranch sauce to dip them in.  Along with this amazing bleu cheese potato salad from Whole Foods.  Honestly, if you are ever in Whole Foods and see this...GET IT...It's amazing


All I can say about this burger is it was simply amazing.   And I didn't even have the point involved just the flat but had a real good fat cap.  The flavor was so rich and real beefy tasting my wife even commented "I don't like burgers but this, this I could eat everyday"   

Thanks for the suggestion guys on the burgers!
