I love to make my own burgers at home. Im always experimenting, from condiments, to toppings, to fillings (Juicy-Lucy's), to the meat blends used to make my burgers. Im fortunate to live near a supermarket that prides themselves on cutting and grinding any meat to order, just for you, at no additional cost. So I take full advantage of this service creating my own burger blends. I started out using regular old 80/20 choice chuck. Then I had them do a 50/50 grind of brisket and 80/20 chuck. Im now gonna try doing a 33/33/33 split of brisket, 80/20 chuck, and short ribs. We'll see how it turns out.
Does anyone have a standby burger blend that they either grind themselves or have a butcher prepare for them?
Im open to all suggestions.
