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

Dave;

I'm good with just the burger. I just wasn't sure what this challenge was. I'm still in. I love burgers. My only regret is that I haven't been able to re-create the burger I had in Olympia, Wa. last time I visited my son. It was done medium rare and had the texture almost of steak. It was very tender, was obviously ground, and tasted like an exceptional steak grilled over fire, with an impressive bub to match. Wow it was so good!. I've got to try and re-create that burger.

Seeeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

You're welcome Kayelle.

Why a second thread? I figured this one would be just to see if anyone was interested, answer questions, and things like that and the the other could be for the entries and comments, that way they don't get lost in the questions about the challenge and such.

That was my thinking anyway....

Here is the link to the entry thread:

What's your best...Burger? The entries!!!

We had some awesome burgers tonight Dave, and dang were they ever good!! We gobbled them up before I could take pictures so I guess I'll have to pass on the burger challenge, cuz this is my last night to cook before we leave on our 3 week trip. I can't wait to read all about it when I get back!
Have fun everyone!!

A picture is optional, so please post your entry.

The ingredients and recipe are the important things, not the picture.

i don't know how to post pictures. my burger sounds plain after all the wonderful ones that are posted. but i like it . so here goes!

a pattie made from 20% ground beef. i mix in, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and black pepper. no salt but you could add if you like. i usually buy sara lee burger buns. i like that they are very soft. mayo on both sides. cook burger pattie. while it is cooking in the same pan, put whole grill chilies. most to warm them up . maybe a tiny bit brown. be sure to open the chilies out. when burger is almost done, put pepper jack cheese on it. put hot peppers on one side of bun, it will heat it up. juices make it yummy too. put cheeseburger on the other half. same premise. put together and enjoy. i call it my calif. cheeseburger because of the chilies. it is quick and yummy. i like to have a salad with the lettuce, tomatoes, and onions that would otherwise be on the burger. sometimes i like burger with a sweet pea and purple onion salad.
