Yay! No rain today so I got to grill me a burger. Cruised on down to the local market and grabbed another chuck roast.
Cubed it up to grind. Placed on a sheet tray and stuck in the freezer for about 25 minutes to make the grinding easier.
While the beef is chillin’ I made a sheet of bacon weave. Placed that in the oven at 425 degrees for about 15 minutes.
Cut into quarters and flipped over and cooked for another 10-ish minutes.
The roommate bought some morel mushrooms from the farmer’s market.
I cut the ends of the stems off and quartered the mushrooms lengthwise. Heated some oil up and sauteed with a little garlic powder, kosher salt and cracked pepper. Finished with some butted and set aside.
Ran the meat through the grinder with coarse plate twice.
Went out and got the grill going with a chimney full of good briquettes. While they were getting going it was time to start the patties. I just used a 1 cup measuring cup’s worth of the beef slightly packed and then added a little more. Why? Because they were just not big enough yet.
I made sure to leave a small well in the center for stuffing. Then I added a layer of the morels.
Then I smooshed a small disk of the local truffle goat cheese that the roomie got from the farmer’s market between some plastic wrap and topped the shrooms.
Topped it all with another patty just like the first and sealed up the edges. Out of curiosity, I weighed the burgers and one was 16.04 oz, the other was 16.07 oz. (Not bad for just eyeballing everything.)
Liberally sprinkled both sides of the burger with cracked pepper and kosher salt then placed onto a hot, clean and oiled grill.
Flipped over after about 15 minutes as my grill was only about 250 degrees.
Added the bacon weave. Too bad it was kind of small compared to this monster burger.
Then some habanero cheese. Also smallish.
Continued cooking with the lid on for about another 12-15 minuted until done.
Onto a fresh toasted bun with some nice mayo. Wow! The crazy mix of flavors were awesome together. This was a juicy and scrumptious. bad-ass burger!
