    Finished Burgers

    Meat Block

    70% Beef Chuck
    25% Pork Shoulder
    5% Beef Bone Marrow

    Additives

    Ghost Pepper Cheese
    Patty Mix of your choice

    Process

    Ground your beef, pork and bone marrow at the same time twice through a 3/16th plate. Putting all of the meat in the freezer before grinding will help your meat grind quicker and cause less smearing. This is especially important with the bone marrow which is just a type of fat.

    Mixing

    We want to make sure we are getting the beef, pork, bone marrow, and seasoning all mixed in evenly but we need to stop short of protein extraction. If you get protein extraction on a hamburger you can end up with the wrong texture in your burger, it will be overly smooth like a piece of summer sausage. This won’t affect the taste but it will change the look and the way the burger acts when you bite into it.

    Grilling

    We used the Broil King 440 to grill these which allowed us to flip the grates up so the juices of the burger get caught in the trenches of the grates, this allows the burger to baste a little more in its own juices. On the side burner, we fried up some bacon and then fried up eggs in the bacon grease.

    Wrap Up

    The results were fantastic, we had a number of people here say that these were the best burgers they had ever had! The bonemarrow upped the umami flavor and the ghost pepper cheese brought a good amount of heat to it without overpowering the other flavors. We absolutely recommend this recipe for anyone looking to try to make the best burger!

    I’m not an egg guy but I’d eat that burger! I’ve been wondering about smoking the high temp cheese since my first order. I’ll have to give that a shot!

    @Jonathon I like the bone marrow idea. I usually use beef short ribs and the fat cap for it mixed with Chuck. Cut all the pieces about the same size, pre-blend, and partially freeze before grinding. I double grind the burger. First pass through a 10mm plate, second pass through a 5 mm plate. This is kind of course, but I like them that way. I mix in Excalibur Better burger, 1/2 teaspoon of dark brown sugar per pound, salt , pepper, garlic and 1/2 oz water per pound of meat. I gently fold the ground meat together by hand. Do not over mix.
    I use a #8 scoop and my Patty press with plastic burger sheets. Then freeze them before I grill them. The sugar holds onto the moisture and rapidly chars/sears the lock in the flavors. This blend work especially well with wild game.
