    make your burgers fatter arounf the edges, and thinner in the middle.They will cook up nice nd flat so that the cheese and sacue doesn't run off. Assuming they are about 1/3 pound burgers, cook direct at a stabilized 450. 4-5 minutes per side. Lay on a slice of onion maybe, some Q sauce, and a slice or two of cheese. Dwell for 4-5 minutes until cheese is melted.[p]CW got me started on these. Yum.

  • Sorry, just reread your post. Store-bought 1/4 pound burgers maybe 3 minutes a side at 450, then dwel til cheese is melted. Plenty of pepper on em.

    Since they are pre made use 2 to make 1 burger. Place some bleu cheese in the center and pinch the edges together. EGG to 500 or so *s and cook for about 4 min per side and dwell for another 4-5. This will get you a good medium bleu cheese burger.

    JJ, Too late sir, all gone![p]That sounds great, I`ll try that for sure sometime...
    These burgers were huge, If I was to make one burger out of two I would have had to climb up to eat
    Really, they were big...

    <p />Mop,[p]Glad the burgers came out so well! I hauled my gas grill out behind the shed two years ago and have never used it since. I don't miss it either.[p]Nice picture of you up there in the frozen north. Try to remember to remove that blue haze filter next time. <G> :-)[p]Say hi to all the other Egg'ers up there in Canada for me (Earl/Barb - BBQfan1).[p]Tim

    It`s a Sony MVC seems that the only good clear pics I can take are really close up pics..any pics from a distance are crap!..
