World's Best Burger!?!

Post by NASH » Sun Jun 26, 2011 8:32 pm

Well here it is, decided to try the 'World's Best Burger' recipe as posted below. It was damn good with the curry kick and some decent heat from the cayenne but this is NOT the world's best burger, or even the best I have had :lol:

Well worth a try sometime :cheers2:

Some wings as an app....

The result was a lovely site and equally as good eating...

Meat the 'world's best burger'
Posted: May 27, 2011 8:08 AM ADT

(CNN) - When you're called the best burger in the country, those are some pretty big shoes to fill.
When you're called the best burger in the world by the London Observer, those are gold-laced sneakers of Shaquille O'Neal proportions.
Memorial Day weekend is practically the opening ceremony of the summer grilling Olympics, and this year, it's time to go for gold with your own personal burger trainer.
Joey Campanaro is the chef and owner of the Little Owl in New York City - he's also the man behind the meaty masterpiece that is purportedly the world's best burger.
The Little Owl's Bacon Cheeseburger
Courtesy Joey Campanaro
Serves 4
Ingredients
• 1 pound ground beef brisket
• 1 pound ground short rib
• 4 slices American cheese
• 8 slices precooked bacon
• 4 homemade buns
• Lettuce
• Tomato, sliced
• Pickles
• Ketchup (suggested brand: Sir Kensington's)
• 1 1/2 tablespoons madras curry powder
• 1 1/2 tablespoons cayenne pepper
• Salt
• Pepper
Cooking Directions
1. In a small bowl, mix curry powder, cayenne, 1/2 tablespoon cracked black pepper and 1 1/2 tablespoons sea salt until combined; set aside.
2. Preheat a grill or grill pan over medium high heat.
3. In a large mixing bowl, mix brisket and short rib until blended; season with salt and pepper. Separate into four balls and flatten into 3/4-inch thick patties. Season both sides of each patty with spice mixture.
4. Place patties on hot grill or grill pan, cooking for approximately three minutes per side for medium-rare, four minutes per side for medium; top burgers with 2 slices bacon and cover with cheese during the last minute of cooking. Grill buns, turning over once with tongs, until toasted. Cover the burger with the top bun.
5. Layer bottom bun with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and red onion before adding the burger and top bun from the grill. Serve immediately.
6. Serve ketchup and extra pickles on the side for those who want it.

That burger looks great, a little surprised how much it shrunk in, but expanded up. Must be the cheap pre-ground stuff I use that stays flat and uninteresting. The bacon looks perfect. Speaking of which, why would the recipe call for pre-fab bacon? Seems like a shame.

Believe it or not there's not much shrinking, the whole thing was huge. I only cooked it to medium rare, a minute or so per side - that freaking bun is pretty huge - a big kaiser courtesy of Johnnygayismac.com :lol:

Not only a bit odd about the bacon called for but the cheese too, American cheese means processed cheese which I must say took away from the overall experience for me :cheers2:

Those tomatoes look incredible. Even though it's 11pm, it might be time to fire up the grill—suddenly I'm starving… :drool:

Yup they're wicked good and you can do almost any sort of spicing/stuffing. Caprese rocks. Likely about 30 - 45 mins around 300 - 325F - I've never really timed them, pull when they just start to soften a bit. Those ones were slightly overdone. Be sure to nail the coals with a handful of wood when you put them on, the cheese picks it right up :drool:

X, those hops are WAY ahead of mine! Holy smokes!

Fired up the old Weber yesterday for some BBQ pizzas. Rolled the dough out into about 8 personal sized pizzas, oiled both sides and separated 'em with parchment paper. I threw the dough down directly on the grill over indirect head for about 5 minutes, took it off and topped the cooked side with sauce, grilled BBQ chicken and pan fried veggies, then threw it back down on the uncooked side for another 5 minutes or so until the cheese browned ever so slightly. Awesome. It's almost like cooking pancakes. I will always grill pizza this way. Threw a bit of applewood in with the charcoal. Brilliant.

Pizza's looking real nice. The hops are pretty good this year. There is actually one growing inside the shed. It's about 4 feet tall, and pretty pale. It's actually kinda creepy, lol.
