    Looks good!  I used to get a really good smoked burger at a little Q joint out here in the country until he shut down.  Missing his Q is what got me started smokin'

    Smoked burgers are great, I do them all the time.

    How was the fries?
  4. They were OK for frozen fries. Saves me from heating up the house.

    It's all about personal preference, but how did you fix those burgers? What kind of meat & did you add any seasoning or liquid? 

    The local butcher says good ol' chuck, ground up, makes for the best burgers. I will say they do taste better just ground sirloin. I pick out a nice thick chuck steak, or roast, & he grinds it up for me.
  6. I've had my butcher double grind 75% Chuck and 25 % Pork.  Have served these as burgers and also as MONIK Balls.  Both times, people have raved about the meat.

    We are going to test this blend in our restaurant.  Smoking might be a option, depends on turn around time, or if holding is possible.

    Just my .02
  7. It was 80% chuck from the grocery store. I put one egg per pound to hold them together and seasoned with Montreal Steak. Reminds me of all beef sausage which I love.

    Burgers look great Outlaw!  We smoke burgers at least once a week for dinner, using 80/20 chuck, but this past weekend, I added some ground venison pan sausage (1 pound venison to 2 pounds chuck) to the mix and they were a hit.  Seasoned with some Tony's Creole seasoning, half cup of BBQ sauce mixed in the meat to keep the venison from binding it too much, then on the smoker for about 30 minutes or so.

    Sounds good TO as I may try that ! I also like the idea of a 75/25 or 80/20 mix! I have done that in meatloaf & in casseroles, but never tried for burgers!.

     All good stuff guys - thanks!
