Smoking hamburgers is not nearly as time intensive as smoking pulled pork. Which means the smoking was done over two hours, mid-afternoon, and most importantly I was able to document. Just in case you wanted a little more instruction on how to make a home made smoker.
To start with, we formed the patties, made a rub, and rubbed down the burgers.
On top of the burner goes a plate of wood.
Then the meat goes on top.
It definitely made an interesting tasting hamburger to say the least, and I'd love to make burgers this way again. Although the boy says next time using mesquite chips might make a little more sense. We used the hickory chips since they were leftover from last weekend. And while I did enjoy the taste, I'm not quite ready to give up making burgers the normal way just yet. But it did make for an unexpected Valentine's Day meal for the two of us.
Anyone else celebrate Valentine's Day, somewhat different from the norm most would expect?
