Just the burger and the toppings and condiments, that's all.

Indoors is fine. Doesn't have to be cooked on the grill.

I'll set up a thread for the entries posts so people can ask questions and discuss things here.


NOTE TO ALL: Sorry I should have been clearer on this...Please don't post your entries here. I will set up a thread for them with posting instructions. Look for it sometime Monday evening.

Hey Bolas, is using a burger press the norm over there? I don't recall ever seeing a hand formed burger from someone living in the UK.

And some great looking burgers, folks!

Pac mate most people in the don't UK make burgers and most of them don't know how to use a grill, I don't accept invites to BBQ's because even good indoor cooks seem to like their product tasting of lighter fuel.
I tend to use my press because of my knackered hand and because of portion control.
Ps the press is good for crab and fish cakes.

I'm in for a burger challenge. And I have but two questions: How can you make a desert, or a beverage from butgers!.

But seriously, I'm thinking that the sides, deserts, and beverages should compliment the burger. Also, can we play loosely with this and use ground beef in a salad, or in tacos, etc.? I'm looking forward to seeing the rules. But fair warning to all. I know my way around a Webber Charcoal Kettle. Moohuahahahahahaha.

GW, like your ideas but I want to focus this one on just one thing.. the burger (see the first post). A simple challenge, not the 3 or 4 course or multiple dish big challenges we have been doing as the GCC.

Maybe a GCC Summer Picnic would be more along the lines of what you are thinking. Could be the June GCC?

Thank you Dave. Not all of us are interested in "multiple dish big challenges". I'm curious though why we have to wait for another thread to post on? What's wrong with this one?
