Burgers made with ground brisket

i saw tyler's ultimate a few days ago and he had his butcher
grind up a brisket and made burgers with it. has anyone tried
this? i have never had my butcher grind up meat for me. if i try
this do all i have to ask them to do is grind it for burgers? will
they charge me? and would they need to add a binding agent?

the only thing i have ever asked my butcher to do was cut steaks
of a rib roast and tenderize chicken breast. i think i am missing
out

Your butcher should do it for you free of charge. Just tell him/her that you are going to make burgers and they will gring it to the right size. No binding agents are needed.

You can also just chop it in a food processor. Texture is different but it works. I do it all the time.

Sounds delish, rickell. Another tasty sounding combo is, ground sirloin and ground brisket. Here's a look:

I looked up Vita mix and that is a very expensive (like yikes!$$) blender, eh?

No, I wouldn't use that. I'm sure the butcher can grind it for you.

The butcher will grind it for you. If not - my grandmother used a handcrank grinder clampled to the window sill. You can probably find it in a thrift store.
