    Reverse-seared Steakhouse Burgers on the Weber Smokey Joe grill

    A day late and a dollar short, but here's my "weekend" cook-

    Thick ground chuck reverse seared steakhouse burgers. Done indirectly with about 14 K-ford briquettes (8 lit, 6 unlit) and one small pecan chunk on my 14" Weber Smoky Joe. Took just under an hour. Cooker temp ~280. My burger (pictured) 153*, the wife & kids' 156-160.

    Meat seasoned with a hefty shake of Morton's Nature's Seasons, my go-to burger seasoning, on both sides. Buns toasted. Garnished with farm fresh thick tomato slice, generous bottoming dollop of Meathead's [Burger] Glop (fantastic) and top it off with a thick slice of sharp cheddar. Fries on the side (with more MBG for dipping) and salad somewhere in the mix. Click image for larger version

        That sure looks good Huskee, especially the cheddar. What contributes mostly to the meat color?

          Well there's some smoke ring there from the charcoal and pecan, that and it's just over medium. I have found that pecan is my favorite for burgers, it's amazing. Next cook I'm going to try a mix of pecan and whiskey barrel oak.

              With a glass of beer and those good Ore-Ida zesty crinkle fries, it really felt like we were "out", good meal. Thanks to Mh's recipes. We do this weekly. Feed the whole fam for about $12 worth of food. My boys love Meathead's burger glop. I've been known to lick the spoon when we're done.

                If you eat fries relatively frequently, I highly recommend getting a deep fryer and making your own. I use the twice-fried method with russets, and I have no patience for frozen fries anymore

                I have one and do make my own. We like the Ore Ida ones, they're the best I've tried yet. They have a real restaurant taste to them when having with good burgers.

              Huskee, looks awesome and thanks for pointing me towards Meatheads Burger Glop. Due to the overwhelming amount of info on AR I have not came across that recipe yet and definetly looks like a goto sauce.

                Looks fantastic! I agree with Powersmoke_80, must try that Meathead glop.

                  It's amazing. The first time I made it I had no hot sauce so I omitted that, it was still great. I had since bought some Frank's Red Hot (love it, very buffalo wings-like) and used it and it doesn't make the glop hot at all, but it does zing it up just enough. It's so good.

                  Finally got around to making the burger glop. Pretty awesome! Goes very well with a shrimp salad also. That recipe is a keeper for sure.

                Yum! Did you grind the meat yourself?

                  Talk about a week late....here I am! LOOKS GREAT!! I'm going to try the glop next time I do burgers....first I'd seen this, too, so thank you! I can't tell if you use buns like I do, but.... Hamburger buns - a perfect example of form over function. I've tried the bottom toppings, but don't like it. My solution is to use the "top" as the bottom. Holds together much better and soaks up more of the great juiciness. Call me weird.

                    Good idea, that's how my boys do it. The glop is so good, great french fry dip too.

                  I haven't yet, I don't have a grinder, but I'd like to get one for my mixer. I get either chuck 80/20 or "hamburger" 75/25.

                    Did some bacon cheddar burgers this way this weekend with a little hickory, best burgers I have personally made. The shop here grinds up fresh daily, quite a difference from that pre-packaged store stuff.

                      Great! Hickory is similar to pecan, perhaps a bit stronger, so I can imagine how good they must've been. Amazing how with a little extra knowledge about technique we're able to transform somethign so mundane as a burger into something so goooood. Did you try the glop?
