Looks wonderful!

What is smoked meat, the generic sounding term makes me a little nervous?

Smoked "meat"
I don't even feed my dogs unidentified ingredients

Good looking burger though.

Interesting. I thought maybe it was the "meat du jour". In other words whatever smoked meat you happened to have laying around and wanted to use up on the hamburger.

What I (and others) call pastrami when I smoke a corned beef brisket sounds like it is a lot closer to your "smoked meat".

Up here it is referred to as just "Smoked Meat". Pastrami is a different thing altogether. It is typically from the plate. Where smoked meat is the brisket.

Mmmm! Montreal smoked meat! Yum!
It's definitely different than Pastrami, which I fondly call "dog breath". Because that's what it smells like to me. But smoked meat is so much better!

That burger would feed several people Rock! Looks good

Other than dog breath, Bunny, that was my thought too, cheap meal for me and 5 of my closest friends...

Great looking sandwich, but I'd probably stroke out from eating it too. Especially like the touch of the sandwich pick.

You have to be Canadian to appreciate "Montreal smoked meat". It is a wonderful delight - a step up from corned beef and pastrami. And we just call it smoked meat out here too. I loved a hot smoked meat sandwich with Havarti melted on toasted sour dough bread. I am getting hungry thinking about it.

Rock, your burger rocks!

Talking

That definitely is a meat celebration, but considering we are a meat shop and deli, our customers wouldn't expect anything less..

We have lots of other healthier options to choose from. If that's your thing...

Oh I don't think I need to be Canadian to appreciate it
I just needed to be Canadian to know what it was

Like the midwest's "loose meat"
