Burgers On The Grill

I know I don’t need to tell you that it’s Burger time.  I’m very pleased that, at last, I dusted off my grill and got back to what this blog was about. We sold beef burgers to our customers and I thought I should try out our burgers on the BBQ.  I’ve only ever tasted them in a hot pan.   So we got the grill going to see how our burgers held up.DSC_0891 Someone gave us a classic Weber Grill without legs.  The grill is in great condition.  I’m not sure what happened to the legs.  Sometimes what happened in ‘Nam, stays in ‘Nam.  Brent found some bricks with rounded tops that held it steady.  I think I shall call our new BBQ “Timmy.”

I’m used to lighting the charcoal with a chimney deal.  A bit of paper in the bottom and charcoal on the top.  Things get hot and then action pours onto the scene.  Instead, we lit it with a fire starter and made a little pile.DSC_0873

That seemed to do the trick.DSC_0882

After the burgers were about ready, we popped the cheese on.  Yes, yes, “American Cheese.”  We like the irony of living in the land of cheese and using milk product spread in plastic.  We also enjoy Comte, so don’t you worry.DSC_0892

Peppers were okay.  Still need a bit of work.

The burgers were great.  I loved the charcoal touch to the flavor.  Below is Kevin’s burger.  Plenty of sun and bun.  Not a fan of the bun, he did the best he could with the French “Maxi Bun ”  by filling in with lettuce and condiments.DSC_0904

Burgers with MoJo JoJo(s)

Burgers tonight. From lovely “88.”. She was a good cow. A fat cow that delivered yum-ness to our customers. I think we’re improving.

And MoJo Potatoes. Which are really potato wedges. Which are really MoJoes. I’m not even sure if it is MoJo’s or MoJoes. I don’t even care, but if you want to JoJo your MoJoes, you need special ‘erbs and spices.
And some duck fat.

I’m not a packaged food fan, but our friend Paul moved house from Paris to America and left behind some lovin’ chicken rub.

So I gave ‘er a go. Any packaged food that begins with “brown sugar” is sure to be a success with most humans.
But really, there’s no harm in sugar, turmeric, garlic powder and ( insert favorite pet spice here ).

And it was yummy.
