Best burger yet

Stopped and picked up a couple of new goodies on my way home from the airport. Got a cast iron grate for my large, picked up some nice wood, and because they have been so highly recommended on this forum, several Dizzy Pig rubs as well. Been a while since I've coooked on a cast iron grill grate, forgot how well they transferred heat. Used some worcestershire and Raising the Steaks on some fresh ground chuck roast, nice and fatty, that turned into the best burger in recent memory.

Ground chuck roast, note the "white" content, worcetershire and RTS

Seared 2 mins/ side on CI grate @ 650-700F

Dwelled for about 4 mins, toasted the buns, served with grilled onions and swiss cheese

For me, perfect burger, nice crust, moist & juicy on the inside, great flavor

    How much RTS did you use, and did you mix it in or just sprinkle on top?

    I'm actually making these tomorrow for guests, so a few tips would help :)

    Didn't mix it in. Just "stain" each side with worcestershire and sprinkle on the RTS to coat each side lightly. You'll love em.

    So just a touch of Worcestershire sauce and RTS on each side, and good to go? Sounds easy enough!

    Thanks, they look great.

    You got it. Just add a hot a$$ fire and you're good to go!

    Your post "Best Burger Yet" reminds me of a story......

    You see, once upon a time there was a whole street of burger joints in New York City. The further you went down the street, the more boisterous the claims were for the "Best Burger".
    On the corner was a restaurant that had a sign in the window that said "Best Burger In Manhatten".
    The next joint's sign said "Best Burger In Town".
    A door down the sign said "Best Burger In The State Of New York".
    The next sign said "Best Burger North Of The Mason-Dixon Line"
    Next door the sign said "Best Burger On The East Coast".
    The next said "Best Burger In The United States".
    One door down the sign said "Best Burger In The World".
    And the next said "Best Burger In The Universe".
    And finally, the last restaurant on the block was a little Mom & Pop place on the corner that had a small, faded yellow sign at the bottom of the window that stated "Best Hamburgers On This Block"!!!
