Beercan Bacon Burger

21 posts in this topic

So I watched the video that has been floating around the internets lately and decided to try this.  I made 2, 1 pounders (plus cheese and filling).  For filling we used morel mushrooms, ramps, onion, poblano pepper, Anaheim pepper and pepperjack.  They were real good!

That looks good! It looks good enough to risk a little artery plaque

We split them in half and went 2 people to a burger.  So really you only were eating 1 piece of bacon and 1/2 pound a meat per person.  Still a big meal, but not as horrible as it looks.  Next time I would try to make them 3/4 pounders, but I had 2 lbs of meat so what the heill....

How do you keep the stuff from falling out of the hole?  (haven't watched the video)

there is a little beef on the bottom - squish a beer can into a ball of meat, form the meat around the beer can.  Wrap bacon around.  Pull out the beer can which forms the hole

So what is a ramp?  This looks good.  My wife laughed and agreed with the Lipitor connection.  For me anyways.  I might try it anyways.

Ramps are wild members of onion family, I believe.

Beer can burger has to be my favorite burger bar none.  The OP here did a mighty fine one indeed!!!  I make mine about 8 oz.  I just use bulk burger and ball up each one rather than using a pre-made burger patty.  You can see how I made it in detail on my blog in the Smokin Hot page www.sausageheavenoutdoors.com.  The beer can burger is kind of like a Juicy Lucy but without that extra patty on top.  The great  thing about this burger is that you can put anything you like in the hole.  I have done them in my smoker and on the grill.  In the smoker I set the temp around 270 deg.  On the grill, you can do them on in-direct heat or set the burgers on the top rack if done over direct heat.  Here are some pics of some I made:  In these burgers I put carmalized onions, jalapenos, pepper jack cheese [two layers] and in the end I topped them with some cheddar cheese.  good luck.

I finally tried these this weekend.  I pretty much demanded my friend make them for us in exchange for another buddy and I helping put a roof on his shed during 100 Deg heat index weather!  These were outstanding and the possibilities are endless.  Kind of fun if you have company because you can create a build-it-yourself topping bar, of sorts.  They will be a re-occurring menu item in my household from now on.

    • Human nature. Especially when one is emotionally invested in elections.   I haven't commented too much on this Russian stuff. Could be true. Could be all just many upset about the election results. 
    • Did "YOU" and the "WIFE" enjoy growing up in the cities?  Me personally I grew up in a farm town in southern MN and have lived in Shakopee for the past 25 years.  I absolutely cannot stand living in the cities.  Everything is amped up 500%.  Driving is nuts. Traffic is nuts.  Ever ride your bike down Minnehaha falls on the weekend?  Kids sports is outrageous.  In general if you want to fish, sled, atv, your driving up north...with everyone else on a Friday night.  Unless you get lucky as heck most neighbors are either phony as heck or you never see them.  Seems as though most folks never leave the house.  Unless you have lots of space/land you will have neighborhoods doing fireworks whenever, dogs barking, snowblowing at 10:00PM etc...  Kids rarely go out and play in the cities.  I've discovered that they are constantly being shuttled to event after event, so the notion that the kids on the street will play together is few and far between.  The schools, at least in Shakopee have been great from an educational standpoint!  However because they shift classes and actual schools every few years, my girls have never had the same classmates.  In the town I grew up in we only had 120 kids in the class, so you pretty much knew every kid.  Bussing can be quite limited when your kid wants to do afterschool activities and sports.  Talk about income inequality...in my hometown the farmer was generally the "rich guy" but you never really knew it.  In the cities you definitely know who the rich folks are and boy does it bring out the competition in folks.  And I'm not talking CEO's and big wigs, I'm talking 2 professionals pulling down 6 figures each.    That's the other thing most people skim over when talking about the greatness of the metro.  Sure if you can afford $125 tickets for the wild game, or $85 tickets for a play, or "shopping" as your activity it IS a great place.  But if your not willing to pony up the money for those events it can be a little boring.  That's why I enjoy Shakopee in that I can head down to the river and take a nice long walk in peace and quiet.  Especially in the winter!   Maybe because I'm getting older and older but this notion that life is all about money, money, money seems less and less important.  Granted I understand you have to make a living and provide for your family, which is why I deal with it, but ultimately you have decide what your family wants out of life.  That is why I am encouraging my kids to seek a life away from the big metro area.  Especially since they enjoy being outside so much.  Full disclose we bought a small cabin last year as our way to "deal with it".  Now I have a place to go to get away AND in 6 years when my youngest graduates high school I will be out of here...  Good luck!!!!
    • True, but we have liberal corporate run media and the fact you are seemingly blind to that fact shows your bias.     
    • my old house was a 6.5 x 12' (No V front) with an outside 2x4' in front for bathroom.   I really didn't notice any difference in towing it.  I know a guy who had his house built with about 2' wide V in front which opens the entire area up quite a bit and he wishes now he would have went 3' wide.  And this still gives you plenty of space on the V to put your LP tanks.     Wish I would have done that on my new 8x16'.   The little gas the V front may save you, to me is not worth the value of that extra space.    
    • I thought there was no point?
    • The US doesn't have state controlled media at all. Well, didn't have. Now we have Bannon and Breitbart in the White House, and of course at Trump's press conference there was only a single reserved seat: front and center for Breitbart.   As far as psychological manipulation: you are subjected to it daily, but usually for commercial purposes. You can easily go the whole day without seeing anything politics related, but good look avoiding advertising for a day.
    • Worst buy I ever bought. I sold it the next week. I like 13 products but not this line of products
