Wow I want that coffee right now! My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Just think of the aroma it would create while brewing. Just walking into my kitchen in the morning would be ecstasy.

Those burgers look roughly the same as the ones Dan and I made. Did you end up putting egg into them? I assume it tasted awesome. If they tasted anything like ours, they made you giggle a bit while eating due to how guiltily good you felt while eating them. After all, something that good cant be healthy...

Dan and I are currently planning phase 2, and I really wish he'd post the photos of our own burgers on the grill.

Nah, i was unable to add egg, because our egg supply ended up being comandeered for potato salad and deviled eggs, but they held up well on their own (only lost one to cooking that fell apart, but it was on the lukewarm side of the grill that hadn't heated up too well, so it just slowly blobed into the grill itself.)

they were quite awesome. I like the ones that had mozzerella and cream cheese (i have to say, cream cheese suprised me on how good it was on these things) the best. stuffing them with cheese is a brilliant idea, FYI, and i'm sure it really helped in holding them together (since its like putting glue in the middle)


We also had some of my homemade chili at the BBQ, which i topped mine with, and it was great. I wont go into the full details, but I make it by making bacon, then browning the meat in the bacon grease, and adding the other ingredients right on top of the greasy beef.

What happened just to the classic burger with pickles onions letuce and tomatoe? i like my patties at about 80 % sirloin and 20% ground bacon (my kitchen has everything you could want including trident knives and a meat grinder, oh and a professional grade deli slicer) i love the taste of red meat i don't want to over power it as the main aspect of the meal

They are boring. The key is to find the things that accentuate the meat.

Technically you arent supposed to eat any ground meat at anything less than medium (or medium well, not sure which) but i know plenty of people that do, though boiling or searing the meat before grounding it can greatly help reduce the risks of illness, if you plan to eat it as such, if you plan on cooking it immediately afterwards. (i, myself, like a nice, even medium, though on occasion i will eat it well or rare, pending on my mood)

I grind the meat myself...and cooking meat will not kill anything that the cow had before the slaughter i.e. mad cow disease

Well, meat from any tainted animal should never be eaten, for that exact reason.

Also grinding it yourself doesn't matter as far as contamination goes. The reason is because contaminants are on the outside of the meat, not the inside. When you cook it, it kills off the bacteria and such on the outside, this is why rare steaks are OK to eat. When you grind it, you make the outside the inside as well, which spreads the contaminants uniformly (well, maybe not perfectly uniform). Though self grinding does allow you to take preventative measure before grinding to ensure it's as safe as possible, but if it's going to sit around a while before being used, then it's just as dangerous as pre ground meat (possible more so, depending on your preservation methods compared to the sealing process used in store)

Granted, this is ONLY a concern with any meat that has dangerous contaminants (like E. coli), but it's pretty tough to know if it's ok or not.

I only grind what i will immediately use... in like 10 minutes


Edit: flash freezing meat kills more bacteria than cooking which is why you can eat steak tar tar and sushi safely... so long as you live in a developed nation that is
