    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.

                  Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

                  The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

                  The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                  The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

                  Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

                  This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
