cnn: Burger King reinvents flame broiling

Burger King reinvents flame broiling - Oct. 12, 2007

Quote:
After spending three years in development, the number-two fast food chain is quietly rolling out powerful new broilers that reduce utility costs, produce hotter, juicier Whoppers, and could allow Burger King to expand its menu to include items like rib-eye steak sandwiches and shrimp kebabs.

McD's is barely even recognizable as food.

i'll admit though, the fries are a guilty treat. But even those have lost most of their appeal to me. Still, a couple times a year i'll get a wicked craving.

I like the McDoanld's Fish sandwich.

The fries are good, especially the limp ones.

I drive right by a BK that's in town, only to travel ten minutes outside of town to a McD's. To me anyway, everything at BK has that fake smoke taste to it. They can stick anything they want on their menu and it won't bring me into their store. And let's face it.... nobody stops at these places for their food. We stop because we have a taste for something..... if you know what I mean.
I miss "Red Barn" fast food from when I was a kid. Burgers, hot dogs, fried chicken... They probably couldn't make it because they were too diversified. Now everybody is adding more items to their regular fare

I was told that a Certain BK at least, Boils the burgers before putting them on the grill, although I have No idea how true it is or not?

I doubt it.

The BK restaurants have a constant velocity conveyor belt style broiler. Frozen patties are placed on the conveyor belt at one end and are properly cooked when the come out the other end.

indeed, the limp ones are the best. with a ton of salt, and no ketchup, is the way i like them.

As for the Fish, they probably caught them in the jersey bay ;)

I'd go for the shrimp kabobs if BK uses Gulf shrimp instead of the farm-raised stuff, but since the farm-raised is cheaper I'll bet that is what it'll be.
