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.

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.

    • I went through the same thing. I had ATV's at first then bought an RZR. It was fun but honestly the quality for the price is pretty bad. You can go up to a Can Am but then the price is even worse. So a few years after I sold the RZR I got the itch again but then started looking at the Wranglers and ended up doing that. I bought a 2006 with the 4.0 and after that and buying a used 6.6' plow I was into it for less than 13.5k and can drive it everywhere.   I have the hardtop on mine. I just take it off in the summer and drive it when it's nice. IMHO it's the way to go but you need to watch out for ones that are rusted out. I take the doors off, the top off and drive around sniping gophers, head to the lake or just cruise around. I like the 32" BFG KO tires.     
    •   What's a big guy like you going to do with a little SUV?  Your still keeping the truck to pull that new trailer right?
    • Good luck, have fun and stay topside this time of year.
    • Did you have to sand in between coats of lacquer? I was going to use a pre catalyzed lacquer for a little more durability, but it seems like it would take forever to get in all of the grooves. 
    • Some of the older ones had a 4 cylinder. Think the new ones only have a 6 now.
    • White pine needs bud caps to survive.     DNR had this publication you might find interesting managing_woodland_deer.pdf   Here is another link.... from extension   http://www.myminnesotawoods.umn.edu/2007/04/minnesota-woodlands-and-wildlife-strategies-and-species/   Balsam fir and spruce are good if we ever have another bad winter....
    • Our son has one... mid 90's vintage....   I think it is the 6, was there another choice?   Not very good gas milage...
    • Anyone have one of these or know the pros and cons about them? I was looking at side by sides but came to the conclusion if I were going to spend around 15K or so I would rather have something more road worthy with a heater. Was surprised what they want for a new Jeep so I would have to find a gently used one for that price. So I would like to know the pros and cons with the little older ones or what to look for and what not to. I'm sure a guy would want the 6 cylinder as I might want to put a plow on the front eventually if we ever get snow.
    • Feiders sittin just outside the top 12. Really cool to see him doing well this year. Didnt sound like he had much luck prefishing going into the last tournament or this one but hes doin a heck of a job when it matters. Would be sweet to see him fighting for another top 12 spot on saturday!   As for my fantasy team... not so good. I was having a decent year so far (except for tharp last tourney).
