Default Mesquite Burgers

Well, burgers have become a regular once a week meal and this week my wife suggested I grill some burgers. I have been trying to perfect a sauce recipe for a local burger franchise(Bud' Broiler). I think I may have nailed it. It's one of those things a ton of people have been trying to duplicate with little success.
Since I had all that smoking wood I cut up a couple of weeks ago I decided to go with Mesquite for smoke flavor. I also used Royal Oak's Steakhouse Lump charcoal and the results were fantastic. I really like the stuff. I wish it was cheaper though or a bigger bag for the money.


No plated pics yet, I haven't eaten yet. Again, that d**n tailbone thing* is killing me and just not hungry right now.

*I think I broke my tail bone the other day and it makes for very painful and uncomfortable movements.

Thanks all for the comments! All you have to do is get the temp up to about 650* and you can have grill marks like that too. I'm sure the cast iron grate has something to do with it.

I finally had me a burger and they were fantastic! So good, I had to have a second one.

Awesome looking Burgers Bro!

It's funny, but I have lived down here my whole life, and have never been to Bud's Broiler. Guess I need to change that.

Mind sharing where you got the R.O. Steakhouse Lump? I've never seen it down this way.

Mesquite rocks. I use it all the time and love it. I even use the chips in addition to the charcoal to get extra hot fires and more smoke flavor when grilling. Great job man.

Thanks Q-Dat,(nice handle)always nice to see a local on one of these forums.

I'll tell you, I hate going to K-Mart but I was looking for something and didn't feel like driving any further so I went there and of course I am always drawn to tthe grillling dept. and I saw this and grabbed a bag. I like Royal Oak's red bag and thought I'd give it a try. I love it! Lights fast, burns hot which is the only way I've used it so far andit cooks with a nice flavor. Give it a try. It's in a green bag.
