Hey guys, I'm looking for a bit of help.

I dont always feel like making fresh hamburgers when i just want to grill one up real quick. I have a little cabin by a river and its pretty run down and whatnot, but its loads of fun to just relax by the river and grill something up with a cigar. I am in need of some frozen burgers that I can buy a box or two of and just leave em up there in the freezer.


What have you guys found to be the tastiest brand of burgers that are availbale to buy at local sotes like Shoprite or BJ's or Wegmans?.... You know, some place where i wont have to part the Nile river to get to!

Thanks guys!

I would call around to some local butchers. Probably better than any store bought crap you'll buy.

I think some even mix in a seasoning if you ask. Very Happy

Funny, I built my smoker last year but I have yet to go to an actual butcher. I ve been buying my meat from Sams Club.

I guess Ive just felt a little intimidated to go into a butchers shop since at this point i realy dont know all that much about meat.

Why not just get some quality fresh ground beef and make your own patties for the freezer. I use 75/25 from a good butcher in my area. Make your patties, separate with wax paper and store in ziploc.

Well Joe I think you opened up a can of worms on this one. But that's what we are here for right? Laughing

I would go to your local stores & butchers and ask about a big box of frozen patties. I know at the butchers around here you can buy burger patties, sausage, etc. in bulk packages.

Good luck & let us know what you find.

I do it this way!

Then you get all the extra flavor, of the onion and the blue cheese in the middle!

While we are talking about making patties and freezing them.
Do any of you guys use a patty press? If so which one? Any tips to using it?

I use the bottom of my small dinner plates. They make almost perfect 1/4-1/3 lbs patties. I like the rough edges it tends to give too.

Grind some chuck roll and freeze. Chuck roll makes for some mighty tasty burgers and if you grind it yourself you know it's safe to undercook. A medium rare Chuck roll burger is the best burger I've ever had.

I got gift package from Omaha steaks and it had some patties in there. I have to say they were some pretty tasty burgers. You do have to pay a good price for them.

Then you really should get to know a good butcher. Nothing like a free education while you shop.

thats the one I use cheap and easy. Only thing I do is put saran wrap over before I start, helps with clean up and patties dont stick at all.

I use a pc. of 4" pvc pipe cut 1" thick with a handle screwed to it. Make your fav. meat mix, spray inside with oil, press,level meat & lift off. Make a small indent in your patty as you remove...
