What is your best hamburger receipe? Type of hamburger, ground round, sirlon, etc.


  • flajoker,
    ground chuck with onion soup mix. mmmm mmm...good stuff. have you tried it?

  • flajoker,
    80/20 stuff from the grocer. ..don't go with the 93/7 stuff. ..way too lean ....[p]i add worcshteshire sauce or bbq sauce to meat, make patties (at least 1/2 pound) then spinkle with either salt/pepper, dizzy cowlick, or ken stones witchy red. ...grill direct, but at low temps 300 degrees for about 10 minutes per side ....yum!!

    flajoker,[p]Half ground chuck and half ground sirloin. We grind ours ourselves and prefer a larger grind than you get at the store as this creats a better texture.[p]Spin
  • flajoker,
    I take 2lbs 80/20 and mix in onion soup, some Worchestershistersheeshtershire, one egg, some italian bread crumbs, and some finely diced onion and green pepper.[p]Now I'm hungry.

    I like to try different cuts of meat for burgers. The other night I ground up a tri-tip and mixed in an italian sausage for some extra fat. That was a tasty burger. -RP

  • mad max beyond eggdome, why 300 degrees?
    Seems awful low

  • papa shaBBQ,
    No sir I haven't..may try it for daddio's 82nd birthday

  • J. Wilson,
    thats what i used to think. ...but enough folks here touted this method, and once i tried it i was sold. ..but give it a try. ...make sure you only flip it once and don't press on them. ...they will have great flavor and they will be really juicy even if you cook them to medium well ...and it may take as long as 15 per side depending on the size of your burgers .. . some folks even go to the extreme of smoking their burgers indirect at 250....

    mad max beyond eggdome,[p]I stopped flipping my burgers. I go 300 - 350 until they are firm.....about 30 mins. Use a little pecan for a quick smoke.

    Butter and raging river on top of the onion.[p]Mike

  • bigarms,
    You use 17+ ingredients to make a hamburger? I won't ask for your recipe for bouillabaisse.
