I've been afraid to cook burgers on the stove, because we live in an apartment building with an uber-sensitive Fire Alarm system and I don't want to be the one to send people running down the stairs in our 25 floor building for nothing. :p

I've been using a roasting pan and the oven lately. It's probably not as tasty as it could be, but at least there's been no blaring alarms.

Cast Iron skillets are the best, great for burgers and steaks. Sprinkle a little salt on the bottom of the pan before adding the burgers, this will help a bit with splatters.
Cook on.

THAT'S your problem, Spongebob!

Switch to the Travel Channel and watch them eating termite poop or cockroach intestines or some other, equally appetizing, stuff that people in other countries hunt and we exterminate.

Oh Bigdaddy, go to the store and get some good ground sirloin, spray your pan with vegetable spray and make a 3-4 ounce patty and enjoy. Good diet food, lean protein. Have a veggie with.

Oh I'm eating well. The whole house has changed the way we prepare food. Lots of veggies and whole grains. All in moderation as well, BUT, nothing beats a good burger.

We treat ourselves occationally. I think that soon I will be pushing for a burger feast.

Cast Iron - For Sure!!

The only thing I DON'T use cast iron for is acids, like tomato sauces and citrus ... Yummy... burgers... I have to make some tomorrow just because I read your post! I can smell them now
