    Give anything for one now.  Stuck in traffic 20 miles from hotel after 600 miles today. Damn those look good. Ever try onion rolls?

    I love a burger cooked on the egg. Simple, but oh so good.

    Agreed. I love me a grilled burger or five. They are truly one of my favorites.

    Looking good!  The ang-L brackets on the XL look really handy when doing a cook like this.  


    Which came first the chicken or the egg?  I egged the chicken and then I ate his leg.

    @SGH do you ever cook 1-2 burgers on your Mini? 

    Burgers + searing has me interested in the Mini....

    I absolutely do. I usually start my burgers on the large egg indirect at a low temp to pick up some smoke and then finish them on the mini with a high temp direct sear. I do small steaks this same way just about every morning for breakfast. It works like a charm.

    @SGH. So kind of like a reverse sear for burgers?  Interesting technique man.  What temp do you start them with on the large? 250-300?  I've honestly never thought of reverse searing burgers!  Learn something new everyday! Btw those steaks don't look that small to me.  Especially when you are talking about eating two for breakfast!

    Yes sir, basically a reverse sear for burgers. Ground beef cooks extremely fast so I run them indirect at between 200-225 degrees to give them a little time to pick up some smoke. Ground beef is almost magical when smoked heavy with pecan. A boring everyday burger becomes a real treat. As far as those steaks, I honestly prefer to eat them four at a time (they come in a 4 pack) so why not. I have been trying to cut down on my eating a little as of late because I'm getting pretty out of shape. But it's really hard. Eating is my favorite hobby by any measure.

    Dang.   I want a mini...

    You use both the Large and the Mini in this process because...
     -  It's more time effective?  (while the large is smoking at low temps, the mini is coming up to Inferno temps?)

    It just so convienant. I have the mini sitting right beside my large. I don't have to fool with going from indirect to direct on the large, handling and removing a hot plate setter or stone or ramping up the temp on the large. No more lump than the little mini uses its worth it to me. We each have our way of doing things and what we think works best for us. With that said, I much prefer to sear on the mini vs the large. It's much more manageable and I feel I get a better end result. The mini is honestly a searing machine. No matter what I'm going to sear, if it will fit on the mini, I'm going to use the mini for the sear. I know that the little mini is not for everyone. But SGH will always have one in his arsenal for searing. Wish that I would have listened to @Mickey years ago and bought one back then.

    Those burgers look fantastic. Getting my first BGE tomorrow. Just in time for Saturday night burgers. Having never used an egg before, I'm a little anxious about how the'll turn out. That's why I'm not starting with steaks. That will be for Sunday. 
    I know I'll get the hang of it. Can't wait to get into it.

    Have fun and SPEND the time to learn how to dial in a temp (top vent & bottom vent) and you are on your way.
