You must have the secret for grilling great burgers then because I've never had a burger from a grill that was THAT great. They're usually dry instead of juicy...and you have to drown them in ketchup, mustard, mayo, tomato, pickle, cheese, special sauce, etc. etc. to make them edible

Man, I feel sorry for you. Sure at first when I was grillin burgers, they didnt come out right. But now I make them practically perfect, just need to mind the temp, and cook them evenly on each side. Time depends on temp of grill, thickness of patties & fat content.

I knew I shot myself in the foot with that comment when I made it cuz I know you guyz love your burgers. Thanks for the tips Josh. I also read once somewhere that you can't keep flippin' em...just once on each side. Maybe that's where I've gone wrong.

It's a 3-way toss up between
1) the 7 course tasting menu dinner at "Victoria and Albert's" in the Grand Floridian Hotel
2) my fresh homemade Neapolitan style pizza
3) my fresh ground, cooked rare, brisket/sirloin/short ribs blend burgers topped with queso blanco, caramelized onions, mushrooms, roasted poblanos and slices of fresh avocado

I'm on a low cal diet right now so EVERYTHING I've ever eaten is the best thing I ever ate!

But there was this firecracker seafood taquitos that was out of this world. It was in Corpus Christi, they were awesome!

I want some now

Tried the pizza at a new shop today. While it is better than anywhere else around, my daughter summed it up best. "The crust is bland and not as good as yours, thanks for ruining all other pizza Dad!"...I have to say that that made my day:-)

Not all veggie, but the peppers came from the garden as did the onions and tomatoes. She would occasionally add a bit of garlic from the garden. As for the rest, it was ground chuck, chili powder, pepper and salt, and a bit of cooked rice.

To round out the meal, we had fresh corn on the cob, string beans, fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, and some small green onions. All right from the garden.
