    I’m a big fan of Japanese Eggplant but I go crazy hot n fast in the wok with a lil oil and minced garlic.  

    Depending on final temp of burger burger I would prolly drop it closer to the fire.  Your gonna want it to cook fast to around med -med well because of lack of fat.

    I'm stuck on why you'd grind tenderloin into burgers, and wouldn't the fat % be crazy low?

    @njl Tenderloin burgers are delicious, especially when the meat has been dry aged.  No gristle and super tender.  I usually only use the end cuts and trimming, however.  You can always add fat.

    Burgers came out pretty good. Super tender and moist but I’m definitely cooking them closer to the fire next time at the fire ring. Japanese eggplant was outstanding halved, brushed with olive oil, seasoned with Cavender’s all purpose Greek seasoning and thrown directly on the grill for a few minutes a side.

    Nice job.  Is that smoked gouda topping the burgers?
