I have entered an Outdoor Cooking Contest next month. The four meats for this are different than the normal four and include a burger.

Has anyone here have any idea what the judges may expect as far as doneness?

Thanks

This sounds good to me also.

Do you plan on grinding up a Wagyu Brisket? ;p

Most burger comps I've entered require at least medium doneness.

You may want to check with the organizers, the USDA requirement for safe internal temperature of ground meat is 160F. Best to make sure that the organizer is flexible on a pink center.

Pink would be my plan, or whatever temp is required. Grind your own. Do a mix of 50% Brisket and 50% Tenderloin Chain Meat. Both trimmed pretty well.

I'd agree with the pink center for beef.

Last year we did a similar competition and mixed beef with pork chorizo in a 3/1 ratio. We made sure to cook them well done because of the ground pork. It worked out well.

The more and exotic toppings are what win burger contests!
