I have a 48" Lang Deluxe smoker, Rec-Tec pellet smoker,1 Weber Genesis 330, 1 Weber Performer (blue), 2 Weber kettles (1 black and 1 Copper), 1 26" Weber kettle, a WSM, 8 Maverick Redi Chek thermometers, a PartyQ, 2 SnS, Grill Grates, Cast Iron grates, 1 ThermoPop (orange) and 2 ThermoPens (pink and orange) and planning on adding more cooking accessories.

        Question on that fzxdoc . Has it got enough power to do the job? My Kitchenaide tends to get a bit hot when I give it a workout with the dough hooks.

        I had no problem grinding the meat. I put the cubes in the freezer for about 20 minutes to firm them up. Turned the mixer onto 4 and started grinding. Never once did it bog down.

        The kitchen aid grinder works great. The only time it struggles is if sinew or silverskin gets in there, but it’s not hard to open up, pull that out, and get rolling again.

        Very handy when whole cuts happen to be on sale cheaper per pound than ground.

        Have you made corned beef burgers before, ssandy_561 ?
        This is an interesting topic. Thanks.

              Pay no attention to the two slices of turkey on the griddle. My better half does not like corned beef

                    Now for the good, the bad and the ugly

                    The Good:

                    The Flavor of the burgers was awesome

                    The smoked Swiss added a nice smokey flavor to the burger

                    I have some left over raw burger I put in the freezer. Corned Beef hash and Dippy eggs are on the dinner menu this week.

                    The Bad:

                    The textured of the burger was a bit off. I used the fine grinding die for the grinder. Should have used the large hole die.

                    All I could find was pre sliced marble rye bread. The bread was too thin and fell apart a bit as the burgers were eaten.

                    The Ugly:

                    I over cooked the burgers. The weren't dry but by no means were they juicy. The first time I checked the temp on the burgers on the grill they were at 160. I still needed to get a crust on them on the griddle and I still needed to melt the cheese on them.

                      Next time here is what I'm going to change

                      Use the large die for the grinder

                      I'm gonna let the hamburger "dry out" a little longer in the refrigerator. The burger was quite wet when I formed the burgers. There was too much liquid still in the burger.

                      I'm going to cook them 100% on the griddle next time and monitor my temps better.

                      I've never really liked burgers on bread. I think I'll ask the bakery 3 to 4 days in advanced if they can make me some rye hamburger rolls

                        This is awesome! This is how you get better. Have you thought about smashing them on the griddle? I love doing that with a flat, cast iron press. It gives you a great crust on the burgers, as long as that griddle is HOT. Great write up!

                        That's the plan next time. I made smash burgers the first time I used the griddle a couple of weeks ago. Probably never grill a burger again. 😄

                      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.

                      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!

                      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.
