.... I've been asked to fire up the grill tonight to char some cheeseburgers... and I'm looking forward to it, actually.... it makes a change from the usual ribs and steaks... and with burgers, well, it takes a little more finesse..

... with steaks, you just buy quality meat and toss it on the grill... with ribs, you doctor them good with your sauce... but burgers require more skill... they require more care.... taking standard, lean ground beef... adding your secret ingredients.... patting out the patty so that it is just so... not too thick and not too thin.... Just Right...

... so yeah, that is my task for the evening.... delicately working some magic on a pound and a half of chopped beef while Dire Straits bounces around the garage - the cool wind keeping me company as it laps at the hot grill...

.... I'm off to town now though... business beckons..

Why spoil a perfect evening with Dire Straits?!

... they are in the stereo in the garage... and I can't be bothered to change the CD...

Kosher salt, bro. That's all the seasoning you need. All that other crap just covers up what blood and muscle is supposed to taste like. It's why we gots canine teeth and inscisors with an edge on 'em up front and not flat molars front to rear.

Grind your own meat too. Swear ta god, you'll never buy a store ground package of meat again. Grind up a couple pounds of aged filet really fine. A little pricey but the entertainment factor is high and it's like eating hamburgers made of butter, yo.

Cooking meat while listening to "Industrial Disease" = good times..

Dire Straits?


Hopefully that meat is laced with Anthrax. ;)

Honestly...you trendy pinhead consumers wouldn't know musicianship if it walked up and bit you on the ass. I suppose the reasons Knopfler has recorded albums with people like Chet Atkins, Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan, and Randy Newman are because he smokes alot of crack and doesn't play the guitar well at all.

Shut the fuck up already. Thanks......

... I'm definitely going to try grinding up the filet, Bitterman... it sounds divine...

Oooh....I'm all about the secret ingredients! I'd tell you how I make my burgers....but then I'd have to kill you!

Perhaps we need to have a Blogger Burger Cook Off!

Bitterman's suggestion sounds awesome. And that's the way to season burgers, too. Only I add a little pepper, and a touch of garlic. No fancy shmancy stuff fo me.(Though I will say that my aunt has some top secret recipe for burgers that kicks ass...)

Grill on high heat to sear the outside, and keep the inside bloody. Mmmmmm... I'm damn near drooling.
