so far my best recipe for seasoning is: 10lbs of good beef from the butcher. they sell 10lb bag for 27 bucks. I get about 16 burgers from it. i use a burger patty maker from Bass Pro Shops. to that I add: 2tsp each of: garlic powered fresh ground peppercorns(mixed) sea salt 1tsp of Chipotle while cooking I lightly coat with one of my two glaze sauces. Guiness based or red wine. and all my meat sauces include Worcestershire I have switched cumin and Chipotle in and out but think the Chipotle is better. not looking for hot but just a meaty smoky bite. I wonder what other spices work well in this case? I open to anything. TIA, Joe P.
