reporting back about using bacon grease on burgers

Last weekend I posted a question about a recent suggestion for using bacon grease because I couldn't remember what the suggestion was! C.R.S. LOL
Well several responded but nobody hit the one I was looking for, but Spin suggested using some in forming hamburgers. Since I buy preformed burgers I thought I'd try that bacon grease as a topical thing. First I rubbed on some DP Cow Lick Steak rub. Then since the meat was cold as well as the grease I nuked it in the microwave and then spread it evenly making a noticeable coating. I then egged the burgers for 4 & 4 at 400 degrees on my small. It worked and was worth the trouble. The taste was inhanced and there were nice grill marks. Sorry I didn't get an after cooking picture!
