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!!
Cast iron.
Throw in some pineapple.
And butter.

Throw down some balls of ground meat.
With kosher salt and big splooges of Sriracha.

Dig it.

Toasted squishy white buns.
Sriracha mayo.
Roma tom.

Because pineapple.

You ever make burgers on english muffins? I think the pineapple ring and patty would hold up well to a toasted english muffin, better than to the cheap white bun... too much shit and that thing just dissolves.
I have indeed gone Muffin Man.
It was good.
But only once a year kine good.
Squishy buns fall apart.
I don't mind.
Sleeping in the wet spot.
JHP had me jonesing for a cheeseburger.
And as fate would have it.
mrs. blues had me meet her for lunch.
At the INO off of 1-35 in Denton, TX.
A pretty new store.
I ordered my usual.
As did mrs. blues.

Enter Jerry Springer.
"I love you but......"
mrs. blues order was wrong.
She always orders a single cheese with mustard and pickles only.
Hers came with tomato and grilled onions.
She took it back and they made it right.
With a fresh burger in about 2 minutes.
I ordered animal style fries.
Well done.
They were not.
They were limp and just barely warm.
The animal style single cheese I ordered was just okay good.
And sub par for INO in my opinion.
The meat didn't have the usual fresh beefy flavor.
Like the griddle guy forgot the salt and mustard.
I dunno'.
And the toasted bun was wonky.
It was toasted.
But not comparable to other INO toasty bun goodness I've had.
Check it out in the piccy.
Overall the burger lacked the usual bam pow flavor explosion.
I expect ever time from INO.
My biggest complaint?
They didn't have any chile's at the ketchup and napkin station.
This is THE FIRST TIME EVER that INO has not hit a home run.
I reckon I've eaten there at least a hundred times.
Hopefully they're still working out the bugs because they're still relatively new there.
And then.
It is Denton, TX after all.
Hard to blame it all on the company when its Texans serving me up.
Another note.
Every INO mrs. blues and I have been to.
Has been spic & span super clean.
This one.
Was like the clean room at NASA.
So they still had that going for them.
Thanks JHP for making wish for a burger.
Today though....
I wish it had been yours!
You're right on with the teri.
I was contemplating using a teriyaki on it.
Bourbon Teriyaki.
How awesome is that?
Pretty dang awesome.
Like Tennessee bukkake.
On a salmon burger.
But I bet it'd be more awesome on a beef burger!
Banzai style.

Salmon burgers.
Flat topped.
With pineapple.
Splooges of sriracha mayo.
Of melty schmelty scheeze.
Griddled toasted buns.
I even put butter lettuce on the f**king 'thang!
This is food.
Heaps of garlic and onion in the burger mix.
Burgers are good.
I`d hit that!
