Simply Burgers Tonight!!

After dealing with the flu for more than two weeks, I finally felt like grilling tonight! We just finished some of the best hamburgers we have ever had. Started by mixing Stonewall Kitchen's Garlic Mustard in with the hamburg (the 75% lean type). Made nice thick patties and then slathered them with the regular yellow mustard and JJ's rub. While they sat at room temp, I got Humpty going. When it hit 450, the burgers went on the grill...3 minutes each side. Opened the dome, put some BBQ sauce, a slice of onion and a slice of cheese of each burger, lowered the lid and closed all the vents and let them do their thing for another 8 minutes or so. You talk about juicy, fantastic burgers done to perfection!!! And, that ol' "Q" smoke filled the neighborhood again!! What a way to go!! It only gets better each time I use my EGG!!

    Ooooooweee! Sounds like C~Ws method. That is about the best way to do them. Try putting a dab of Q sauce on the onion before applying the cheese.[p]Happy to hear about your successes.

  • Nature Boy, Great to see em doin burgers..It's a super meal sometimes neglected for the finer presentations. 8 minutes is a bit long on the cheese melt tho..usually a minute or so otherwise you lose most of it to the fire. :-) Ya just want to get a nice melt to it and slip it on the bun..Slaw and chips and beans..oooooh boy! chase it with a Guiness and ya got it made..:-) Ya all are making a drinker out of Po Ol' Char-Woody!! Doc a day clears the tubes..!!

    I gotta try that mustard on my next burgers. It works great on a butt and ribs (doesn't that sound perverted).
    Glad the Egg came through for you after you had the flu. [p]Tim M

    C~W,[p]Burgers are great on the egg. Try throwing on a few hot dogs at ate same time. I found the egg does something to them that no other cooker ever has. They are excellent and the flavor is enhanced beyond description.

    C~W, you are sooo right about the cheese and 8 minutes. Next time I'll follow your suggestion and put the cheese on the burgers a minute or so before I pull them off the grill. The way I did it there was probably more cheese IN the fire than on the burgers. Always learning. And... next time I chase it with the Guiness!!!!! Can't wait!!
