    So the cheese has to go on top of the meat to melt. Therefore the Google burger is ridiculous. Meanwhile the Apple burger has put the lettuce under the meat, and the tomato on top of the cheese. I don't think I like that. Why break up the vegetables? The Microsoft burger seems to make the most sense to me, and it's how I've pretty much always built a cheeseburger. However if pickles are involved I like them on the bottom just below the meat.

      I dunno - lettuce on the bottom can prevent or slow down the bottom part of the bun from getting soggy, but then the juices can drip off the lettuce - unless it is shredded...

      A slather of butter on the bottom bun and then a quick grill or griddle will keep the bottom bun dry. No need for lettuce at all.

    Well I can tell you that the bottom cheese can be in if there's more the one slice.

    for those pictured above. IMHO YOU ARE CORRECT. don't like lettuce n bottom? In n out burger is off the list for you then.

    the golden rule #1 of burger is .... you have 8 fingers on top to handle stuf and only 2 on the bottom.

    there are more rules should you want to know.

      Initially I was confused by the lettuce, but it makes sense now, since I dont want the bun right now. So, my vote is for Apple.

          let HH make you a burger. Burger construction is completely dependent upon topping, meat and bun.

          That thing is half the size size of my head. And I have a big head. 😀

            Lettuce on the bottom because that keeps juices from soaking into, and destroying, the bun. Cheese on top of burger so it melts and wraps itself onto the burger. Tomato on top of that.

            Apple wins.

                  Is it me or does Apple have a larger 8oz grilled patty while Mr. Softie has a, 5 oz SV burger without a Sear. So does the cheese and lettuce really matter if the the Sandwich holds, and is a cohesive unit of taste, texture and flavor?

                  Respctully i submit that most people dont don't know how to eat a burger.

                  Once you pick up a burger you should never , ever put it down again unless the safety of your burger and the loved ones around you depend on it.
                  if your so amature that you can not hold a loaded burger through the end may I suggest you start with lettuce, toms, bacon and avocado and learn your letters from there.

                  burger and sandwich construction is an art form and should be respected. Just like the pit, "no rules rules in the bedroom and whatever makes your boat float."

                  I can make it.

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

                  the good one grill
                  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.

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer In One

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The flat top does the burgers and the fryer does the fries. Use the griddle for bacon, eggs, and home fries. Or pancakes, fajitas, grilled cheese, you name it. Why stink up the house deep frying and spatter all over? Do your fried chicken and calamari outside. Blackstone's Rangetop Combo With Deep Fryer does it all!

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker
                  The PBC has a rabid cult following for good reason. It is absolutely positively without a doubt the best bargain on a smoker in the world. Period. This baby will cook circles around the cheap offset sideways barrel smokers because temperature control is so much easier.

                  kareubequ bbq smoker

                  The amazing Karubecue is the most innovative smoker in the world. The quality of meat from this machine is astonishing. At its crux is a patented firebox that burns logs above the cooking chamber and sucks heat and extremely clean blue smoke into the thermostat controlled oven. It is our favorite smoker, period.

                  masterbuilt gas 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'.

                  Napoleon's NK22CK-C 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.
