Beercan Burgers, yet once again.

it’s been some time since I made these, but they are still soooo easy and definitely one of my favorites. Beercan Burgers (or made with a coca cola can, but it’s probably size that matters 😉 ).

You just need a few things for 2 of these big boys.

  • 300 grams of minced meat (in my case 100% pure beef)
  • 1 egg
  • bread crumbs
  • ketchup
  • 5-4-3-2-1 rub (but any good rub will do)
  • bacon (long slices)
  • chedar cheese (the chewy melty kind of cheap cheese)
  • some grated cheese of a kind
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 green bell pepper (but any colour will do, of course)
  • BBQ Sauce

First start by making the minced meat ready for the can… Mix the minced meat, the egg, a squish of ketchup, a dash or rub and the bread crumbs to a non-stick, non-watery substance. Sounds difficult, but you know it once you’ve got your hands in it.

I’ve divided this in 2 balls of roughly 150 grams each. Pretty nice size. Then, form balls and once done, press the beercan (or Coca Cola, for the observing people) in the center and form the minced meat neatly around it.

Now the even more easy part, wrap it with 2 or 3 slices of bacon until it’s nicely packed.

Now it’s back to cutting up some veggies and making them soft in a pan. You can of course use the BBQ for that too, but mine is not lit yet, so I’ll use the stove for now.

The bell pepper and unions are cut up and softened and I’ve also added a cloaf of garlic. Never hurt anyone. (almost …. depends, I guess, of the situation…)

Once soft, let cool down, before you put it in the burgers, of course. I’ve also sliced up a few pieces of cheese, due to the lack of grated cheese here on sunday and no open stores around for miles ….

Now I’ve added some very little vegetables (cold!) in the burgers and some cheese and I’ve repeated this until it was full, topped of with …. more cheese.

Now a squeeze of BBQ sauce, mine is ‘sweet baby ray’s’, Hickory and brown sugar. Some sweet touch. I like it, but it’s up to your taste too, of course. You can very easily chop down some peppers in there. Everything you like. Mushrooms will do great too, but I didn’t have any ….

I’ve prepped the grill for indirect grilling on roughly 160 degrees and I’ ve placed my 2 beauties on the grill rack. 45 long minutes of waiting without looking might stress you out, but no fear, all will be well. Just mind the temperature. That’s the most important one.

After about 30 – 35 minutes I’ve topped them off with a slice of cheddar melting cheese and let it go for the last 15 minutes.

But know, that after 45 minutes of pure agony, you will be left with 2 of those gorgeous pieces of meat and vegetables. You can’t find a better burger anywhere! I’ve ate them with some home made DO bread, and it was delicious! Definitely worth a try!

Birthday weekend and good weather

So, last weekend the weather was great! Saturday and sunday were filled with sun and beautiful spring temperatures. You know you got to go cook outside like this, don’t you?

What’s it going to be. Considering I have my birthday on sunday, I was thinking pulled pork, which is always good. Problem was in the time to sit around for a few hours to let it go low and slow on the WSM. In stead I chose to do it in the DO, which I didn’t use for a few weeks. No special treatments this time, I actually copied my own recipe for Dutch Oven Pulled Pork from my blog.

Lazy sunday BBQ burgers

Since I just like to grill and I also like meat, I decided to put some meat on the Q again.

Oh, yes, the weather was also very cooperative, of course, so it was not really a fair choice.

What to eat, on the other hand, is something that is decided in a true dictatorial way by me, and then communicated to the rest of the family to see if I can recognize their vibe. This vibe was fine!

So shall it be done!

Sunday Ribs from the OTP

Apparently I don’t have a freezer big enough to hold my meat, so I needed to create some room. Needs to be said that cooking and eating is much more fun than gathering nice pieces of meat in a freezer, so I choose the ribs.

Took them out of the freezer on saturday and removed the rib skin.

Best BBQ chicken ever! (According to Jamie…)

This weekend, we had chicken. I love chicken, my wife loves chicken, the kids love chicken. Who doesn’t love chicken? I’ve searched the net for a decent way to cook some legs and thighs, since I didn’t want to do it the ‘old fashioned’ way, just grilling it of on the Q.

I’ve found a wonderful recipe from Jamie, which I really loved, and since I (almost) had all the ingredients in house, I decided to give it a go.
