    Brisket Burgers!

    Had a 9 lb brisket flat in the freezer. Pretty sure it was AA (choice for my US friends) that was trimmed far too closely by the butcher and was pretty thin. Since I'm not a huge fan of brisket, what to do? Brisket burgers are awesome, so let's make 11 lbs of ground beef for burgers. I had some beef fat as well so added 2 lbs to get an 80/20 mix. Forming it into balls for smash burgers and patties for regular burgers tomorrow. Should do us for the summer.

    Lot of YES PLEASE there!


      If the end of the flat is too thin, it usually gets cut off and used for burgers. If there is a fat cap still, you have enough to get whatever ratio you want.


        My daughter-in-law bought some from a local butcher as a treat for me and brought them to our house so I could cook them for everyone. I know, still trying to figure out how bringing me meat to cook for them is "treating" me . But I digress. They were awesome! A much more forgiving meat when ground in to burgers as they could take longer grill times without over cooking

          Also super awesome as smash burgers! I do a 3 oz ball for each patty with 2 patties per burger. I get an incredible crust on these on my Blackstone.

        Great idea !


          My local butcher makes that grind for sale all the time. I honestly think it's the best burger mix all around. Fatty, beefy and really moist, exactly what you want in a burger. Thanks for posting PK


            Brisket burgers are the best! Try adding some short rib meat next time you make them - over the top.


              Well....you coulda sent that brisket down 115/35 to 401 west here for cooking....
              Price of brisket up here kind of a shame to grind it but if that's your preference when should I be there for burgers.

                Any time, once we're allowed out of the house. :-) I usually buy packers from Costco which are reasonable or wait until they go on sale. Sobeys has them on sale quite frequently.

                Superstore has them once in a blue moon, Sobey's on 10th Line gets sold out in seconds and Costco is just too much of a PITA on Ridgeway.
                Be safe up there.

              Oh, yeah! I recently ground a 5 lb point with good fat content into burgers. Outstanding.


                Ground brisket makes very good burgers.


                  Sounds Great pkadare ! If only we lived closer. I'd bake some buns and bring the chips.

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
