Ok you silly buggers. Sit down, shut up and pay attention. Uncle FlyingHigh is gonna show you how to make a hamburger the way it should be made.

First off, you need to get your crap together and your poop in a row. Go gather the following items:

Bun:

- Onion roll. (No regular buns here. We're men and high rollers. We use onion rolls. Because they're classy.)

Hamburger Patty:

- 1lb lean ground sirloin
- 1lb lean ground pork
- 1/4 cup crumbled bacon (that's right you tossers. we're putting bacon IN the friggen patty!!!)
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup chopped red onion
- 1/4 cup Italian flavoured Pastene bread crumbs
- 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce (it's pronounced war-KES-tershire. not war-chestershire or any other way. get it right.)
- 1 Tbsp Tabasco sauce
A pinch of sea salt and and ground black pepper.

Toppings:

- FH's secret seasoing (no i won't tell you what it is. come up with your own. slackers)
- FH's secret special sauce (giggidy. no i won't tell you. screw off)
- red onion
- tomato
- sweet pickles
- BACON!!!
- margarine
- Bull's Eye BBQ Sauce
- cheddar cheese (real cheese. not that processed garbage)

Most of the stuff:

All right. Got that? Good. Moving on. Dump all the patty ingredients in a bowl, as such:

Now it's time to quit being a lady boy. Get your friggen hands dirty. Mix all that that stuff up real good. With your hands. Like a BOSS!!

http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t42/Steeliestalker/2012-07-02142401.jpg

Ok. Now your hands are cold, sticky and generally a mess. Good boy. Form that goop into patties, about 4 - 5" across. We want REAL patties, not girly patties. Jab a depression in the middle. This will help the juices stay with the burger as you cook it. Freeze any extra patties for future feasts.

Go fire up your BBQ. Make it good and hot. Kinda like your own personal version of Hiroshima. That kind of hot.

Once you finish that, go and bust out your slab of bacon. Now, we're men here right? We don't use that sissy pre-sliced crap. We go out an get a friggen slab of bacon from the local butcher shop and carve off our own slices. Good and thick like God intended it. BACON!!!

Go toss your patty on the hot grille. Come back in and prep your toppings. Tomato, onion, pickles, FH seasoning, FH sauce (giggidy) and cut your bun open. DON'T FRIGGEN PUT ANYTHING ON THE BUN YET!! wankers.

Go flip your patty. It should look kinda like this:

http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t42/Steeliestalker/2012-07-02175716.jpg

Get back to your stove. Fry up your bacon to your desired level of crispiness.

http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t42/Steeliestalker/2012-07-02175844.jpg

Get back to your patty. Give it a light brushing of bbq sauce, a gentle shake of FH seasoning. Then put a slice of cheddar cheese on it.

http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t42/Steeliestalker/2012-07-02180032.jpg

When the cheese if mostly melted, go toss both halves of your bun on the grill. But only toast it lightly for frick's sake. Don't burn that thing!! We're only getting it lightly crispy. The crisp edges trap burger and sauce juices.

http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t42/Steeliestalker/2012-07-02180216.jpg

When the bun is toasted and the cheese is melted, take it back to the counter and lightly butter both sides of the bun.

http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t42/Steeliestalker/2012-07-02180541.jpg

Add a smear of FH sauce (giggidy) on the bottom and a few shakes of FH seasoning on the top.

http://i157.photobucket.com/albums/t42/Steeliestalker/2012-07-02180623.jpg

Now pile on the rest of your toppings, bacon etc and add a dollop of potato salad to the plate.

Chow down, feel the mouth orgasm and thank me when you've recovered from the shear shock and awe of such an amazing burger.

Don't forget to finish up with a healthy slice of black forest cake for good measure:

Ok... The burger is a little to LA or new york for my style... But there are some great complimentary ingredients... (I'm a wee bit scared by the idea of special sauce)... Lol...and I don't do breadcrumbs in my meat in a burger... Lol... Meat by volume must be 100 percent

In all seriousness bud that looks really good.. Do you think it would cook up well as a meatloaf?... This could be something special if so bud...

Cheers!

how do you mean LA or New York? too fancy for you? lol.

i'm sure it would make a great meat loaf. you'd have to figure out the cooking times though.

LOL great right up, be a man for gods sakes and use either moose or elk, superbrads right, to high brow not enough camo. ;)

FlyingHigh

lol. yeah yeah.

i don't have any elk, deer, moose, any other game. only got out for one day last season and didn't pull the trigger. i made do.

I do the majority of my own game processing, including making some of the best hamburger meat you can get. Specifically for grilling burgers, I take very lean meat and grind it 50/50 with a few boxes of "bacon ends." Nothing better than REAL bacon burgers. Press into patties, and freeze with layers of wax paper. You can toss frozen patties right on the grill. Antelope/Bacon is my favorite mix, but its not very often you can get an antelope here in Saskatchewan.

FH, your burger looks pretty fantastic. Only things that I would add would be mushrooms (fried in the bacon grease, of course), avocado slices, and some thinly sliced black olives (melted into the cheese). And where's the coleslaw and fries on the side? ;)

Coleslaw and fries would take to long to make. This was kind of a rush job. I'm gonna have to put together a proper feed one of these days. No mushrooms, avocados or olives on my burger. Not a fan of any of those. I do have an idea for the next one though...you'll have to wait and see. :)

High 5 bud... You did a great job... And I like your commentary... Way to help me show that a bachelor can cook...

And yeah, you are gonna get feed back... I love your recipe (minus special sauce) and I see using monterey jack as the cheese etc... That's the beauty of burger / chili / spaghetti recipes... All game for mods....

Again, great job bud,,.

You had me up till i saw your ground meat packages. I use real meat not that stuff sold in cut rate stores. Make friends with somebody that raises livestock and get some real good stuff. Other wise i may try your recipe, just that mine will have the good stuff in it. :D

cut rate stores? this ground meat came from a private butcher, which sources directly from local farmers. it also happened to be the best stuff they had in the store. same with the bacon. trust me, i'm no hack. lol. :)

Glad to hear that FlyingHigh. More people need to get good quality meat, i sold a lot during the great BSC scare, couldn`t hardly give it away. Most that bought burger said "What the hell it doesn`t shrink" my reply was "Yes it`s all meat not filler".

We also get nearly all our beef from a local farmer who sells grass fed. Not quite as tasty and marbled as grain fed, but way healthier.

There's a lot to be said for real farm raised beef. Between my family and my wife's family, we have an essentially endless source of beef. You know EXACTLY what you are getting.

Call me crazy, but there's something truly satisfying about butchering your own beef. Shoot, slice, skin, hang, age, cut, wrap, freeze, thaw, cook and eat.

What I do need is a local farmer that butchers chickens...

look for hutterites, we buy ours from them, pay i think its about .75 a lb, birds are 7-10lbs, and taste like the ones we used to raise, no hormones or additives

I used to do my own chickens... Lots of work... I have a guy down the road I buy them from... In then end its better to let him raise them for me... I just don't get the tax write off...

nothing beats fresh meat and chicken...

Tax write off for raising chickens?
My parents raise their own chickens and we send them to a butcher when they're ready. Best chicken ever. The eggs we get from our year round egg layers are also the best ever. The yolk from the store bought eggs look so unhealthy now.
