    Well, lots of briskets for the Superbowl here in the beef section. They all look great....kind of makes my ground beef look like chopped liver. I went to a friend's house for the weekend to DJ a party. I drank way too much....a bunch of 30 somethings acting like we were still in college...playing beer pong and tippy cup....a little rough today, I'm certainly not 19 anymore. I decided on the drive home today I really needed to get a short smoke in today so I opted for good old burgers. I started with 2lbs of 90% and mixed in a little Montreal Steak seasoning. Made some large thin patties and stuffed them with a mixture of bacon bits, shredded cheddar, and barbecue sauce. I opened a can of Busch's Onion beans, added some leftover rib meat and barbecue sauce and put the pan under a couple of the burgers to catch the drippings.

    An hour and a half in the MES set at 275 with a pinch of hickory chips every 20 minutes and the biggest one hit 160 so off they came.

    The wife whipped up a creamy italian pasta salad and we had a great inpromptu meal. I'm filing this one away as a great way to whip up some smoked grub at the last minute.

    Some great looking food there!

    Now with a little chopped liver or heart in there? 

    We could make some great sausage.

    Good luck and good smoking.

  14. Great idea and great looking food!  Thanks for reminding me a smoke doesn't always have to be a 8 hour production and include a large chunk of meat.... I just may have to make me some smoked stuffed burgers this weekend!

  17. I've never thought to do burgers on the smoker.  They look fantastic.  Now I'm having second thoughts between meatloaf and burgers for this weekend's smoking.

    Burgers sound much more delicious.  No problem with them drying out or wrapping themselves around the grate?  What size were they?  I'm looking at the picture of when you set them in the grill and they look to be a good half pound raw.

    BTW:  Smoked Beef Liver is delicious.  A friend fixed the dish for me years back because she knew I loved slow iron-panned cooked liver and onions.  Wish I had her recipe, but it's hard enough to find a beef liver that isn't already sliced and pre-frozen.
