Burgers? Hell Yeah!!

Hey y'all looking through the sacred THP scrolls it is apparent that most awesome of foods is sorely neglected. That's right chidren's, I'm talkin' about BURGERS!! Sliders. Pub burgers. Fast food style burgers. Gastro burgers. Cheffy burgers. CHEESEBURGERS!!! Single and double meat. Triple meat. Extreme burgers. Man vs. Food burgers....the list is endless but y'all get the idea.

We won't go into the endless arguments of who created the first hamburger (Fletcher Davis) or what meat qualifies as a burger. Nonetheless....here are the rules for posting in this soon to be awesome thread:

1. Any meat goes. Beef, chicken, pork, lamb, rat, fish. Whatever, hunt it down and kill it with a knife. Its all good and I've included the options other than the traditional beef so all the kids can play in the pool. If its ground and round, its all good.

2. The damn 'thang has to be between 2 slices of bread or bun. White bread. Brioche. Sourdough. English muffin. Whole wheat. Its got to be bready. No wrap crap or wild pizza dough like chingaderra's.

3. Any cooking method goes. Grilled. Broiled. Griddled. Steamed. Deep fried. Zippo lighter.

4. Because I love to ridicule to no end tree hugging granola wimps and hippy's.....
Veggie burgers are all good. Just be prepared for the woe and gnashing of teeth and smack talk that will soon come if you post it. It will be all in fun and all good.

5. You suck at cooking? The only thing that would suck more is if you posted pics of your restaurant burger. For the sake of keeping the comedy rolling...
Any burger you didn't cook or you bought is allowed and is all good. Warning: while allowed, posting pics of BK burgers or their ilk with a splash of tabasco will bring upon you the most ridicule and insults. Even more than a veggie burger!

6. Chile's and/or hotsauce is mandatory on the burger. ON the burger, no crap on the side.

7. Pics are mandatory. No posting about a burger you made or ate without pics. You will suffer extreme ridicule and experience much loathing. Just don't do it.

8. Include a list of condiments and toppings. Mayo. Mustard. Onions. Cheese. Extract of male baboon spermatazoa. Whatever. Post it.

There it is y'all. Can you get down brown with it? Allrighty then...


Here's mine. Sliders. 80/20 ground chuck from Matador Meat Market, Frisco, Tx. Cooked over fine diced yellow onions in cast iron using the smash technique. Toasted Pepperidge Farm slider buns with mustard, the onions, dill pickle and jalapeno pickle slices. Kraft brand American Plastic Cheese.


Adult beverages are encouraged in the pics but not mandatory. Dig that awesome cast iron crust sear!


So bring on your burgers. And that means those damn Aussie's and their stinkin' beet root too!!

Hi. I just felt like stopping by and bug you all with this image from the internet.


I know I'm going to get a warning now!
You were obviously joking and posted that.
But more importantly, you posted a pic of what a good many folks around the world really like to eat.
Sure its Mickey Dee's.
But its still a cheeseburger.
And it may now these days be a sorry example, at one time it wasn't all that bad.
The fact is, many of us grew up on such burgers but they inspired so many of us
to improve on it and make it into something fantastical.
I loved Whataburger as a kid but they are shit now.
That's okay.
I've shifted to a new paradigm as many others have. 
Just look at Boom's, JHP's, et. al. burgers.
WE are the new Mickey Dee's and greasy diner burgers from back when we were kids.
And soooooo much better.
Dig it....
One of the biggest staples on the planet is rice.
But not for every country.
But there ain't a single country on the planet, no matter how large or small that you can't find a hamburger.
Hear me know, 'bleed me later.
When the kids are begging for mcnuggets I make sure to eat also. Double quarter pounder with cheese , large fries and large Dr pepper. I agree with TB. McDz used to be pretty dang good.

Hold the mayo and im all over that!
That's funny.
I also loathe mayo on a burger.
Just like I loathe ketchup on a burger.
But I'm also a hypocrite. 
When I lived in Seattle I used to hit up Dick's.
Awesome good burgers.
And yeah, they came with mayo.
LOTS of mayo!
And its well known I hate lettuce on a burger.
For a Dick's cheeseburger with the lettuce and mayo I didn't care.
I left it on there and ate it like hot redhead puss......

Sound's like you've had your fair share of Dick's!!
Had to...
And Booma that's the first time I've seen tortilla chips on a burger.  They look like nacho effing cheese doritos in fact.  And it entices and repulses me at the same time.  Perfecto guac shmear on the bottom bun by the way.  Excellent pic.
I used to not be liking the mayo on any damn thing.  But it all started with BLTs.  I need a touch of mayo on the top slice - keeps the maters from wetting the bread ya mean?  Soggy bread esta no bueno muchacho.
