    Given that a burger needs to be brought to 160 internal to truly be safe to eat, a 80/20 blend will render nicely indirect on a big grill. Burgers are simple food. No need to over-complicate them.

    I do the same, but I put the Drip ‘n Griddle over the SnS and griddle the burgers. They still get the grilled taste, the grease goes all aerosol and gives it the nice charcoal flavor. It’s just easier for me, no flare ups. The hard part is cleaning the griddle.

    In the same camp here as everyone else. I may go a little lower on steaks, but not burgers.

    Except that's a LOT of coals to use just to cook a couple of burgers. For a cookout, not an issue.

    If I do this, I use a smaller Smokey Joe and effectively do that same thing with the coals pushed to one side.

    Agree with above. No need to low n slow a burger or steak.

    I usually have some leftover charcoal from the last cook in the SnS. I'll line the bottom with this and add new charcoal if needed for a unlit base layer. I'll then light a half or slightly more chimney and dump on top when ready. Vents all open, cooking indirect until 110 -115 internal then pop the top let the fire go for a bit then start searing.

    I usually fill the SNS as full as possible with smokin hot coals, throw a chunk of wood on them and cook the burgers lid on indirect with all the vents open to around to around 120 degrees and then sear to finish temp and back to indirect lid on to melt the cheese. Not sure what cooking at 225 would bring to the party.

    This is also what I would do. It's what I do for reverse searing steaks. I don't worry about temp control of the grill - just run it wide open with the steaks in the indirect section, then sear once the steaks are 115 to 120.

    When I do burgers on the sns I just fill the sns with hot coals, i keep all vents wide open , put my burgers on indirect until there almost done then I set them directly over coals until they get the sear I like, and flip for the other side , then I consume and they are delicious 🤤

    I wouldn’t worry about the temp of 225 for burgers IMO

    Weber SnS - steakhouse burgers

    Has anybody explored methods for using the Weber kettle slow and sear while making steakhouse burgers?.

    I like the recommendation on this site of indirect heat until 20 degrees below temp then reverse sear at the end. Maybe lift the SnS onto a brick or something so the coal is an inch below the burgers. But I am wondering how you utilize this method and still stay at 225 indirect heat. Do you fill the SnS with an entire chimney of white hot coal and turn the vents down as low as possible during the indirect cooking, then open them all the way for direct searing? Would this stay low enough - can a SnS with an entire chimney full of hot coal keep your Weber indirect at 225 or is it going to be hotter?

    If anybody has experience with this please let me know. Thank you so much!

Blackstone Rangetop Combo: Griddle And Deep Fryer In One


The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, grilled cheese, and so much more. And why deep fry indoors when you can avoid the smell and mess by doing it outside!

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.
