Here's my entry for Burger Month. Haven't had much time as of late, but wanted to get something in...:blah: So my entry starts with the goods. Ground chuck, sirloin, onions, taters, red peppers, onion rolls, cheese, pickles, and seasonings.

Burgers ready. I mixed the ground chuck, sirloin and a package of onion soup mix.

Saute'd up some onion, garlic and red bell peppers to add to the taters. They go in the oven....:twitch:

Burgers on the grill over some light Mesquite

And my OFFICIAL ENTRY..The Big Boy Burger. Topped with double cheddar, pepper jack, pickles, Vadalia onions, bell peppers and some brown mustard. Taters on the side with sour cream and my own garden fresh chives..:biggrin1:

And a bottle of Schlitz...:bow:

Two Outstanding entries so Far!

Bluesman, that was a homer of a first entry!

Well, a throwdown finally coincided with something I was going to make anyhow..........and with all the throwdown chatter lately, I actually remembered. :loco: I have been on a big blackening kick lately so blackened burgers were on the schedule for Friday night.

Just under 2lbs of 80/20 and half lb of ground short ribs, mixed with some pepper, horseradish, and dried mushrooms which got run through the spice grinder. Damn near forgot the first pic right out of the gate. :doh:

Made them into 5 oz patties and hit them fairly heavy with the blackening seasoning. The seasoning is right out of the Prudhomme book "Lousiana Kitchen" - paprika, kosher salt, onion powder, cayenne, white pepper, black pepper, thyme, and oregano.

Put the burgers in the fridge to ponder their fate and went out side and got everything set up, thought for a minute about doing the burgers right on the grate, but you just can't do blackening without cast iron, so got the griddle ready to go.

As things were coming up to temp, I threw some duck bacon and miscellaneous slices and scraps of home cured belly as well.

Once the bacon got done, I threw some onion in the bacon grease to carmelize as the temps kept climbing on the griddle. Pushed all that to the side and poured some melted butter down, and dropped on a couple of patties and poured butter on top of them.

Gave them a flip and put blue cheese on top. Wanted to get a few more blackened shots, but by now that farking griddle was hot and the action was fast and furious...........blackened doesn't mean burnt. :mrgreen:

Threw some onions on top and got them off of the griddle and into the house.

On toasted bun with a bit of lettuce so it is good for me.

Got so excited to eat that I damn near forgot the bacon. :doh:

Duck and pork bacon added. (Please use this as the "money shot")

Wasn't too impressed with any of the sliced shots, but it seems like it should be added to wrap things up.

Oh man........fantastic flavor. It was so damn rich with the short rib, butter, and duck bacon, that I could only eat one. I wish I would have gotten the blue cheese a little more melted, but the flavor went well with the blackening.

Thanks for looking and good luck to all who enter.

WOW that is unbelievable. You nailed it, great pics also. I love the "money shot".

Smoothsmoke 05-13-2013 09:19 AM

Yeah, take my entry off man. I thought I was pushing it with a sammich. It's not a true burger, I wave the white flag, towel has been thrown. :doh:
