    Ingredients
    2 lbs 80/20 hamburger
    I buy it in 10 lb tubes at a nearby Fairway store for $1.69/lb and divide it up.
    I wanted 80/20 for use in the smoker.
    For burgers I cut them ¾ to an inch thick while they’re still in the tube as I divide the 10 lb package up.

    I like to sprinkle my burgers with a little Montreal Steak Seasoning



    The bottom of the AmeriQue and the top of the smoke box are lined with aluminum foil.
    And you just can't do burgers without baked beans
    I usually spray the racks with some kind of cooking oil.
    I decided to add just a few hickory chips for a light smoke flavor.

    The cook temperature is set for 225⁰



    An hour and 45 minutes into the smoke the Weber Temp probe says the burgers are 170.
    After 2 hours the Weber Temp probe says the burgers are 175 so I had to check on them.
    They looked done so I took them out




    Hindsight;

    I thought the burgers were good nice and juicy with just the right amount of smoke.
    The wife on the other hand thought they were a touch too smoky.

    I may need to rethink the 80/20 hamburger and maybe go to an 85 or 90% for this.

    Well I was talking about for those folks in the frozen tundra. We go to the beach year round here and the BBQ is a daily cooking implement
     
     
  11. Lucky dog! It gets a little cold here for a couple months but nothing keeps me away from the grill and smoker. I might not say that If I were dealing with northeastern type winters.
