How do you like your burger?

After reading the last thread by Bill Voss on "what goes on your burger", my curiosity was struck is how regional tastes like their burgers? Such as being rare, medium rare, medium, medium well, well, burnt... And also cooked on the grill (flat surface restraunt or pan) or Char-broiled over open flame??? I like my burgers cooked all the above ways, but also like it seasoned with Lawrys seasoning salt and a splash of pepper (A-1 also if it's being flame broiled on the grill)... So whats your tastes??

    No seasoning -- let ME add what I want.

    Rare, no doubt about it. Hopefully it's not more than an 80/20 mix.

    I like my burger with just cheese and maybe some better burger seasoning which has pepper,salt,garlic and another spice I cant remember right now. Grilled one sre the best but failing that you would be surprised how good of a job a George Forman does.

    Grilled over charcoal for choice; a slice of sharp cheddar almost melted into it; dressed with lettuce, tomato, onion and mustard. The mustard should be medium hot coarse-grained. Tracklements is great; you can get it from Lobel's. (And no, I don't get hamburger there!)

    Medium, seasoned with TexJoy Steak Seasoning, that has salt, pepper, cayenne, paprika, onion, garlic, and oregano. It's like an Adobo seasoning blend. You got to cook the burger on a griddle for juiciness. The buns are buttered on toasted on the griddle until brown, the cut sides of course. The bacon should be still chewy, not stiff and crunchy. The fries should be crispy though. The beverage is tea or regular coke, maybe lemonade or root beer.

    When I grind my own beef I like my hamburgers raw. My father always called them cannibal sandwiches. A nice raw patty, salt and pepper, with thinly sliced onion. Heaven on a bun.

    I like to occasionally hot grill. Char it on the outside and have it pink in the center. Seems to me that if I sear the burger quickly, it make s a juicier burger. I like to serve them hot off the grill with lettuce, tart tomato, mayo, bermuda onions, salt and pepper.

    I like them 20 to 25 percent fat, chuck and grilled outdoors or on a grill pan. Medium rare.

    Medium to medium rare super-fresh meat (80-85% lean), raw onion, garlic powder, garden tomato slice and mustard on rye or a good hard roll. A burger like that beats all kinds of yuppie food! I like buffalo burgers even more than the beef kind.

    Medium rare, with a touch of garlic powder and pepper.

    I hate the recent trend of some places not cooking a burger medium rare. I will never set foot in a TGI Fridays again. Worst burger ever.

    As I mentioned in the other burger forum, I prefer to grind my own hanger steak for a luscious burger – or blend in some ground lamb (this is what I did in my Sutter Home $10,000 burger). There is also a local coop that gets organic ground beef from nearby New Hampshire. In either case, since there is very little chance of e-coli, I grill my burgers on a Weber, with a special heavy-duty grate, over hardwood charcoal -- the burger cooked RARE. The grate insures perfect grill marks and a crisp, quick sear, while the center stays rare and moist. (As I also said somewhere, there are two types of people who don't eat meat: vegetarians, and those who eat there burgers and steaks well-done.)

    Also, I lightly oil a crisp French roll and quickly toast that exactly where I cooked the burger. It sounds like I know what I'm having for dinner tonight.

    As a footnote, the Weber cast iron grate insert is phenomenal. It will change the way you grill. Here is a link to ahve a look at it. http://www.epinions.com/hmgd-review-38B8-9C665B3-39627F30-prod4

    I like it just a tad west of rare and in addition to the usual toppings have grown fond of smearing the bun with hot jalapeno jelly. Also a smelly scheese like Esrom can be a nice change.

    Sprinkle with some Montreal steak seasoning on both sides, then grilled hot enough to make the outside brown and crispy while the inside is still pink and juicy. Served with a slice of sweet onion and some Dinosaur BBQ sauce on a hard roll.

    I like my burgers medium on the outside and pink in the middle. I always season with garlic powder, pepper, and a little salt. I also add a couple drops of soy or teriyaki sauce to the ground meat. I prefer ground chuck about 80% lean.

    I like the ground round from my local meat market raw. The best stuff there is for eating raw. I trust it a lot more than getting it in the store and it is 99.9 percent fat free so it is nearly all meat!!!!!!!! I am getting hungry for it right now.

    A hamburger is pretty good no matter how it is cooked or what it is dressed with, but......

    Given a choice I will take mine rare to medium rare on a soft bun, lightly toasted, with white American cheese, sometimes with a slice of onion, sometimes with a slice of grilled onion, salt and pepper and NOTHING else!

    What some places call a patty melt, i.e. a cheeseburger added to a grilled cheese sandwich on white bread, is a nice variation sometimes as well.

    I can remember being in some sort of small cafe in Johnson City Texas 10 years ago or so and ordering what their menu touted as a 1/2# burger. I told the teen ager who waited on me that I wanted that burger with cheese. She asked me what else I wanted on it and I said "just cheese thanks". Off she went behind the counter and hollered quite loudly that "some guy out there wants our big burger (or whatever they called it) with nothing but cheese"! I guess this boy with the funny (upstate NY) accent must have seemed like a real oddball to someone from rural Texas!!

    Hey, I like Mayo too.
    I thought this dicscussion was about burgers.
    You will note the greats- Tommy's, In-N-Out, Tommie Boys, Apple Pan, and the others from SoCal-McDonald's, Jack Box, and BK (in the old days) didn't offer Mayo. This disturbs the little work of art the burger is. The Yin and Yang of sweet and tart, the Ketchup and Mustard. It contributes nothing except oil. It was when BK was based in S. Fl did they start dolloping 3 tablespoons on the whopper that this non-contributory addition came into SoCal (perhaps to cover up the "flavor" of their burgers). This is an Eastern thing, not very sucessful here. If there was something more to add, believe me, somebody would have created it here. Mayo ain't one of 'em.

    Following the Lipton onion soup for onion burgers is the best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Make them on our Holland grill until done and they are really good. Otherwise fresh Heans beef which is 90%meat and 10%fat. Really good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! With cheese and mediun rare to rare.
