It’s been hot this last week here in Low Cal (Upper 90’s to low 100’s) but today it cooled off, so I grilled a few Cheeseburgers. I started out by cutting 2 russet potatoes up into 1/8th and then tossed in some OO and seasoned with some fresh ground salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and some thyme. I then seasoned the patties with Primo Chicago Stockyard rub. Here they are on the grill ready to be flipped.

Flipped them.

I then removed the patties and toasted the buns. While they were toasting I added some cheddar cheese slices to the patties. Once the buns were done I put the patties back on to melt the cheese.

Here it is plated up with the Steak Fries and a Modelo Especial.

The burger look good, but the plated photographs are fantastic.  Did you use a softbox and remote trigger?  What lens is that?

Thank you Family_Cook.

 

No I did not use a softbox or a remote trigger. What I used was my Canon 70D with a EFS 18-135 lens and a tripod. (Tripod being the single best and easiest way to improve a still photo) I stage the picture scene before I actually plate up the food. (so the food doesn't get stone cold while I'm taking the photos) I then use the camera's "Live View" LCD screen to frame the picture as well as the 2 second delay self-timer. This gives the camera time to settle (reduce any vibrations) after I touch the Live View screen where I want it to focus. (Much like a remote trigger would) It's very simple and easy and lets me eat the food while it's still warm.

The title makes it sound like just another boring cheeseburger. Nothing boring about this cook! Great money shot and great entry. 

 

 

Thank you ck. A cheeseburger and fries. Not exactly boring but far from exotic.

      Since my Husker Game was finally on in the evening we had a watch party at our house. I wanted something we could eat while watching the game, so I decided on Runzas (AKA Bierocks) and corn on the cob. (Both of which are Nebraska staples) I followed Cowgirl’s recipe with a few changes this time.

       
      This time I subbed out a 1 lb. chub of Jimmy Deans regular sausage for one 1 lb. of hamburger. I also tripled the amount of garlic. Both tweaks really added to the flavor and I’ll be doing so on all future batches.

       
      Here’s a link to a thread of my first attempt making these where the original recipe can be found.

      https://www.kamadoguru.com/topic/23518-dutch-oven-bierocks-or-runzas-or-whatever-you-want-to-call-them/

      Started out making up the dough.



      Prepped all the ingredients and took them all out to my gas side burner.




       

      Sweated the onion and added the hamburger.



      After the hamburger was mostly browned I added the salt, pepper and cabbage and cooked until it wilted.



      The dough had risen nicely so



      rolled it out into a log



      and cut it into 8 roughly equal pieces and formed each piece into a ball.



      I then rolled each piece into an approximate 7” round and placed 2 giant spoonful’s in the center.



      I folded up the edges and pitched them together and placed each into my Dutch Oven that I had already smeared with butter. I repeated this process until it was full. I prepped my kamado for the Dutch Oven and preheated it to 325.



      I then closed the lid and let this bake for approximately 35 minutes. And here is the result.



      I carefully cut around each one and plated one up with a ear of corn and wash this down with a Pizza Port Brewing Swami’s I.P.A. (IPA not shown)



      Yum!

       
      Everyone thought they were delicious and the game results were good as well.


       
      Thanks for looking.

      Sent the long weekend off in style with a Double Meat Double Cheese Burger. Fired up Jr. for the patties.



      Flipped and removed them when they were done so I could add the cheese.



      Toasted the buns.



      One more time of the grill to melt the cheese.



      Plated this up with some watermelon, potato salad and a Stone Brewing Xocoveza. (Yum!)




       



       


      After a few bites of this monster.



      So good!
