The Great Burgers thread....you'll need a napkin....
« on: January 01, 2019, 01:43:46 AM »
Welcome to the first Big Burger Challenge!

Everyone likes burgers, everyone has a recipe, everyone has a favorite take on the burger. Now, your special recipe may be the key ingredient in winning a new EDC...speaking of which...

Here is the prize: a NIB Victorinox Every Day Chef’s knife:





This 8” chef’s knife is consistently selected as the top-choice for a stainless chef’s knife by Cook’s Illustrated magazine. Or, at least it has been for the past three years...




Here is how I’d like to run this give-away, one of my whackiest yet….. :facepalm:...I know....

1. The contest will run from Jan 01, 2019 to Feb 15, 2019. This lengthy span should give people a bit of time in which to meet the complex, but tasty requirements.

2. Participants must have 16 posts, before entering. Sixteen, as in 16oz in a pound of ground (minced) beef.

3. To enter the contest, please submit a photo of a big burger that you have made. Might be small in size but big in flavor. Or maybe you like a triple decker. It doesn’t matter, as long as it is your burger. Or burgers…..
    — photo should include evidence of the date you made it.
   — photo should demonstrate evidence that a human took a bite of said burger, thereby proving it is edible.
   — phoning out for delivery, does not constitute ‘making’ a burger, but you can get help in sourcing ingredients or making the burger. Even if you can’t cook, you may know somebody who can. Get that person to help make it.
   — entries should include a list of the basic ingredients used in your burger, but you don’t have to reveal family secrets if you don’t want. For example: “This burger was made with ground beef and secret spice blend, grilled over charcoal, and served with a slice of cheddar on an Onion bagel.”

4.   Your burger can be made from anything you choose. Omnivores should feel free to use the burger meat of their choice. Vegetarians can submit veggie burgers; Vegans can submit something worse.

5.   If I have a question as to whether or not a submission meets the universal standards of a being a ‘burger’, I may challenge the entry. I’ll clearly post, “That’s NOT a burger!”.  If three (3) other MTo members disagree, believe the submission is a burger, and post that they approve the challenged burger, my challenge will be overruled, and the submission will be accepted.

6.   Participants can submit up to six (6) entries. That would be one entry for every week of the contest, but there’s no saying you couldn’t just submit six entries on the very last week. The caveat here is that each entry must be a unique burger with a unique date, and use ingredients or a technique that differs to some degree from the previous entries. The exact same burger cannot be entered more than once. Something about each of your entries has to be different from the previous entries. Surely you like more than one burger?

7.   I’ll keep a running list of successful entries posted. Feb 15, 2019, around dinner time, my time, I’ll pick a random winner from the list.

If questions arise, please post them here in this thread for clarification.

I hope this will be fun.  Good luck and bon appetit!  :tu:

Sample Entry:

“Swiss Burger on Rye”




This was a beef burger seasoned with salt and a secret spice mix (ground caraway seeds, dill seeds, black pepper, cayenne pepper, celery salt, and garlic powder). I cooked it on a grill with hickory chips providing a little extra smoke.  Added swiss cheese while it was still on the grill. Dressed the burger with mustard, a touch of mayo, and a few pickled onions. 

Tasted great!  :tu:

Whoa!  Anyone can make a burger.  If you've eaten one, you know how to make one.

Great GAW !   I'll sit this out as I'm all set on Kitchen knives  :tu:

I have the 10" version of this knife, had it for years and used it when I worked in a restaurant as a prep cook. Back then they were branded "Forschner"  named after the guy responsible for importing them to the US from Victorinox. They were the workhorse of many restaurants I worked at.





" Forschner is the name of the North American distributor for Victorinox Cutlery: maker of the famous Swiss Army Knife. Forschner is the surname of a man who imported and sold these knives in the United States. Forschner knives became extremely popular with professional butchers due to the quality of construction, extensive selection, and sharpness. They are stamped, rather than forged, which brings the cost of manufacturing down. The blades of each Forschner knife is made of high carbon stainless steel and tempered to a superior edge that can be easily re-sharpened. Forschner knives are regularly chosen as a top pick for quality and value by America's Test Kitchen. "

I think it has to do with bread slices vs. burger buns as to what folks call it. Not to be confused with a mushroom burger which is a standard (?) burger with mushrooms added. Which is weird because I don't think a portabella on a hot dog bun could ever be considered a hot dog.  :think:

I'll try to post a burger-making tutorial in a few days.

I'm no burger-master; and if I can make a good burger (and Mrs Nix thinks I do), then anybody can. So, nobody should even start to think they can't play along in this challenge.

Great giveaway idea!

Here's one: "High Fiber"

I'll work on a pic of it being eaten later  :whistle:















Shhh.... Don't tell anyone, the secret ingredient is wood  ;)

If the trees blew down the wind and no one was around, would the alphabet song really go backwards?
