First High Heat Cook - BURGERS

FaceDanceFaceDance Posts: 231
Hello again.  Thanks for all of the encouragement and kind words w/ my first post.

Today is approx day 13 of Egg ownership. And… the day I decided to see how hot this baby could get.  Big Mama wanted a burger and i was more than happy to obliged. 

I quickly realized 700 was no issue… at which point I decided to back it down a little.

I apologize in advance for the plates and the lack of measuring ingredients.

Approx 1.3 lbs 85/15
Splash of A1
Splash of Worcestershire  sauce
Some chopped red onion
4 chopped cloves of garlic
1/2 Jalapeno chopped  
Heavy splash of BB's Butt Rubb
S&P

Direct BGE at 550 w/ SS grate

2.5 minutes
FLIP
2.5 minutes
FLIP
Add cheddar
SHUT DOWN EGG 
Let sit 5 minutes

Result = delicious but over down.  Cannot believe I missed medium / medium rare in such a short amount of time.  

THIS THING IS AWESOME… CAN'T WAIT UNTIL I FIGURE IT OUT!!!

    You don't need to cook burger at that high heat. You were at 500 for 10 minutes, eggs don't cool down fast. Cook em to temp and pull them, don't let em sit in high heat for a extra 5 minutes.
