    What's your favorite burger cheese?

    For turkey burgers I prefer either a thick layer of provolone or Havarti.

    For beef, I like sharp cheddar, Havarti, or colby/mild cheddar.

    But my absolute favorite for beef burgers is good ol' American, the processed pre-wrapped stuff, like Kraft singles. Best burger cheese methinks.

    You?

              I had a bogus can at work, COULD NOT GET ANY OUT. Threw it in my lunch box, came back hours later to a lunch box full of cheese and a freaking empty can.

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. Now I have an Anova sous vide, the Dragon blower and 2 Chef alarms from Thermoworks.

                Cheddar, Mozzarella, Swiss and Pepper Jack. I buy them by the block and shred it myself and put a handful on on the burgers then I cover them so til cheese gets real gooey.

                      Whoaa, I haven't had Velveta for a while, what with the natural health craze, but let's not rule this out! We just enjoyed a grilled Velveta on sourdough and must say it was very satisfying. What a great thing Kraft has done with introducing Velveta mini-blocks; individually wrapped small blocks of Velveta five to a package. Very convenient, and don't have to deal with that great block..

                    Plain 'ol deli american cheese. Don't need to get fancy, maybe just some lettuce and tomato. As far as I am concerned hamburgers are a fictional construct. Only cheeseburgers truly exist.

                    For just a regular old cheeseburger (especially if I’m cooking at home) nothing can beat a slice of Kraft Individually Wrapped American Processed Cheese. If I go out to a burger joint I do like a nice mushroom and Swiss burger. And there is a trendy hipster burger place I go to sometimes that uses Brie. It’s pretty tasty.
