Why didn't I think of this? If these aren't loaded with sodium, I might try 'em.....says 410 mgs per pkg. ( For the Applewood)

Otherwise, what do you usually mix in your burger patties? For me, diced onions, black pepper, and Worcestershire . Always. Not a burger without it.

My favorite burger is the beer can burger where you would would not need many spices.  Montreal steak is good and I do use it but with a beer can burger salt and pepper would be enough.  good luck.

Great minds think alike.  I almost started a thread on burgers as well reb. Me, I'm always mixing something in, it's either hienz 57, A1, or some kind of marinade.  Tonight I mixed stubbs beef marinade in , that was real good. I think burger has a lot to do with it though, no more store bought for me.

Bobber, are you saying you grind your own? And if so, what cut of meat do you grind?

Grinding your own does make a difference.  If you do, I like to use chuck roasts when they are on sale.  I have even bought a whole chuck roll boneless and took the chuck eye out for steaks. I few nice roasts and the rest for burgers.  Best ground beef around.  If y ou do have a store that has a service counter, they often have ground chuck and it is ground fresh daily along with their shop trim.  Ya, If you have a farmer and can get it from there that's a bonus for sure.  However I do buy the ground beef in the 3 pound tubes when on sale.  Works for me as well for burgers or adding to the sausage mix with pork butt.  good luck.

When I get a deer I grind it all up except the backstraps.  I then buy the cheap burger in the 5 lb chubs and mix it.  Then I put it in 1.5 lb tubes.  Lasts most of the year.

I suppose if you are having a barbecue for family and friends you could grind it fresh, for better flavor, but it would not make much sense if you were going to freeze it.

Isn't chuck roast more expensive, then the equivalent grind of hamburger?

My buddy that farms on the side tells me the price of calves is outrageous, so he hasn't raised any beef for a couple years.  Hard to believe but he said ordinary calves were $600 at the zumbrota livestock auction.   This was last spring.  Don't know what they are now.

For burgers I add onion powder, garlic powder, salt and peppar.  I don't like anything leaner than 85/15 beef in a burger.  A burger is all about the quality of the beef.   Foley Meats has fantastic burger.  My buddy gets a cow every year and we eat a lot of burgers at the hunting shack.  I would take a blind taste test with the stuff from Foley.

I usually do an egg, some store-bought bread crumbs, and then as bobberineyes does with some kind of sauce that I grab from the fridge: worcestershire, ketchup, bbq sauce, salad dressing, siracha, etc. I don't usually salt the burgers as I find that whatever sides go with it have plenty of sodium already, but black and cayenne peppers for sure. My dad has and always will be a big fan of seasoned salt on everything, including burgers. I can't argue with the taste except for the sodium.

Since I like a more medium to medium-rare burger, I'll cover mine in the fridge for a while to both strengthen the structure of the patty and to cool the center of the burger.

Cooperman, 80% is not always pure ground chuck and and you can get it cheaper than chuck roasts most of the time except when chucks are on sale.    Now the pure ground chuck in the service case is always more that 80% and even 85% most of the time depending where you shop.  Last week they had chuck roasts on for 2.99 so I bought some, ground it and froze it.  That's some great ground beef, but yes you have to watch for sales.  good luck.

I've gotten into the "smash burger" craze.  I use the side burner on the grill and a cast iron pan.  Good quality beef with only a little salt.  These burgers are very juicy and have nice caramelization on the outside of the patty.  Topping with sauteed onions, thin sliced pickles and whole milk white American cheese.  Yum!

"Smashburger". More foolishness for a normal burger that was made that way for years by old school cooks. Just like Baker's Square "Crushburger".  I haveta go read long ramblings of off-topic  stories on the cooking threads now to keep on top of topics. Don't wanna miss anything, ya know. Or get too many "likes".

    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor. 
    • Yes it is a very good round.
    • I picked up a 6.5 creedmoor in a Kimber Montana last fall for a super lightweight 0-400 yard deer/antelope gun.  It is definitely the hot "new" cartridge in shooting circles due to the really good ballistics and low recoil.  And extreme accuracy.  I doubt the cartridge is going anywhere any time soon.  Virtually all the big manufacturers are building one now.
