    Nothing orginal here, but I love onion (a lot of onion), bacon, mustard and ketchup and of course a double cheese and beef.

    Hmmmmmmmmm........ Sounds yummy. All it needs is a little bacon and it'd be perfect! ;z

    I start with a few pounds of fresh ground round. Other cuts are too lean and FAT TASTES GOOD! Gently mix in one egg yolk and about 1/4 Cup of Italian bread crumbs per pound of beef. Form into 8 to 12 oz patties. The smaller burgers are for the women-folk, children and girlie-men. I form them very gently (packing as little as possible) into about a 1 1/2"-thick patty, thinner in the middle than at the edge so it will be uniform when it cooks and draws up. Each side gets MSG, minced roasted garlic and lemon pepper, in that order. Then it goes on a charcoal grill (GAZ IST VERBOTEN!!), covered, for three minutes on each side (go rare or go away! ;) ). I also use mesquite if I had forethought to get any. Cheese (cheddar, bleu, Colby, Jack, Velveeta, whatever) goes on top for the last minute. The lid must remain on the grill as much as possible, especially when using mesquite. The burger comes off the fire and immediately goes onto the toasted heel of the bun (usually good Kaiser rolls) so the bread absorbs the draining blood. :drool:

    My favorite beverage with my ‘fatburgers’, believe it or not, is a tall, cold glass of ...milk. ;T

    Eat while wearing earplugs so as not to be disturbed by the sound of your arteries hardening.

    mix in hot wing sauce with the meat, take 2 thin patties with crumbled blue cheese on one then use the other to "seal" in the cheese. top with bacon and either mayo or mustard. and always grill the buns too. a nice kaiser roll. i usually eat mine "naked".

    no...I'M NOT NAKED....i mean no lettuce, tomatoes, onions, or pickles, etc.

    besides...if i was naked and some of that hot oozing cheese started drippin' on your lap "area"....not good!!! ^4 ^4

    Ours start out with ground round mixed with mild sausage. Then they get a bath of worchestechire sauce, black pepper, salt, a dash of onion powder, and then the patties are formed.

    Once the patties are of the proper size (big as heck), then they get a sprinkle of KC Masterpiece BBQ rub (a light dusting) before being thrown on Kingsford started with a chimney starter (no fluid). A little soaked mesquite chips for flavoring and like someone said above, the lid has to stay on as much as possible. We like mesquite much better than hickory after trying it.

    We like ours around medium to medium well and then the cheese gets thrown on top (American usually but sometimes swiss). Buns are toasted on the same fire and then it is to the table where the following are added to mine....

    bacon, lettuce, tomato, onion, dill pickles, mustard and a little more black pepper. Usually they are scarfed down pretty quick at my table and there are never leftovers the next day. What we don't take care of at dinner usually get consumed for snacks.

    Matter of fact.....I think I'll check the rain forcast and fire up some of these when I get finished on this computer. Got me wanting them bad now.

    The Varsity in Atlanta is the only place I've been where they use pimento cheese . Cook your burger, place a glob of cheese on it, place in a bun, and use a heated press(like a George Foreman) to melt the cheese, or just press with a spatula in a hot pan. Different, greasy, and good!

    I'd have to have the woman reply. I've had hamburgers everywhere, its pretty much how I judge a new restaurant. But my girlfriend makes the BEST hamburgers ever. The funny thing is, until this year she was a vegetarian for the last five years. Long story...

    Juicy patty (cooked), Swiss cheese, sweet sautéed onions, Rye bread, grilled like a grilled cheese sandwich,

    I start with a 3/4 pound patty of ground sirloin(ask at the butcher counter)with some Dale's Steak Seasoning mixed up in it(The 'Bama folks should know Dale's).

    Grill medium rare with a good dusting of Cachere's Cajun seasoning.

    Add a slice of swiss and a slice of Colby-Jack, bacon, KC Honey Smokehouse sauce, and some sauteed onions on two slices of grilled,buttered sourdough.

    Big buns, big hamburger patty

    Grill the buns and layer as follows:

    Bottom bun, thin avacado slices, meat with a slice of deli cheddar sharp, slice of big tomato, red onion slices to taste, lettuce shreds, mayo on top bun. Put enough mayo to keep the lettuce shreds from falling off the burger.

    Local restaurant has one called the "Mexicalli". It is a 1/3 pound broiled steakburger, (I think it's sirloin) with cheese, onion, tomato and japaleno slices on a sesamie(sp?)seed bun. This is an excellent sandwich! If I had to pick a favorite cheeseburger, this would be it.
