    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.

                      Agreed, American makes great, but I also like to experiment with others - pepper jack, provolone, bleu cheese, jack, cheddar, etc...

                  Digital Thermometers Are Your Most Valuable Tool And Here's A Great Buy!

                  maverick PT55 thermometer

                  A good digital thermometer keeps you from serving dry overcooked food or dangerously undercooked food. They are much faster and much more accurate than dial thermometers. YOU NEED ONE!

                  Click here for more info on the Maverick PT-55 Waterproof Instant-Read Thermometer Review shown above. It may be the best value in a thermometer out there


                  If you have a Weber Kettle, you need the Slow 'N' Sear

                  slow n sear

                  The Slow 'N' Sear turns your grill into a first class smoker and also creates an extremely hot sear zone you can use to create steakhouse steaks.

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

                  the good one grill

                  The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. 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.

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                  Griddle And Deep Fryer All In One

                  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. Plus it has a built in cutting board, garbage bag holder, and paper towel holder. An additional work table on the left side provides plenty of counter space.

                  Pit Barrel Cooker Smoker

                  The Pit Barrel Cooker May Be Too Easy

                  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 in the hardware stores because temperature control is so much easier. Best of all, it is only $299 delivered to your door!

                  The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

                  NK-22-Ck Grill

                  Their 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. It's hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the NK22CK-C a viable alternative.

                  GrillGrates Take Gas Grills To The Infrared Zone

                  grill grates

                  GrillGrates(TM) amplify heat, prevent flareups, make flipping foods easier, keep small foods from committing suicide, kill hotspots, are easier to clean, flip over to make a fine griddle, and can be easily removed and moved from one grill to another.

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.

                  Professional Steakhouse Knife Set

                  masterbuilt gas smoker

                  Our founder, Meathead, wanted the same steak knives used by steakhouses such as Peter Luger, Smith & Wollensky, Morton's, Kobe Club, Palm, and many others. So he located the manufacturer and had them stamp our name on some. They boast pointed, temper-ground, serrated, high-carbon stainless-steel, half-tang blades with excellent cutting edge ability. The beefy hardwood handle provides a comfortable grip secured by three hefty rivets. He has machine washed his more than 100 times. They have never rusted and they stay shiny without polishing. Please note that we do not make, sell, or distribute these knives, they just engrave them with our name.
