I'm not a big fan of hamburger, but when the time comes I prefer blackened.

That sounds delightful !

Funny. As an aside, one time I went fishing and caught a crab. Darn thing bit the crap out of finger, up until that point I was going to set it free. Nope took the dumb thing home and boiled it. That sure taught it a lesson. LOL

Back on topic...Medium (just a touch pink on the inside) My father on the otherhand for some bizarre reason thinks all meat should be well, well, done. Ick. I was 20 before I realized meat could be cooked any other way.

I won't eat a hamburger if it like a hockey puck or won't eat if it is still mooing. Anywhere in between is okay.

Medium for burgers. But steak has to be Pittsburgh rare or Black n Blue.

Smoked w/mesquite/pecan/hickory/apple(any or all), indirect heat, med well(no pink). Once you've had smoked meat of anykind, you don't want anything else. Anymore, I smoke everything; potatoes, beans, steak, burgers, jerky, prime rib, brisket, all pork, chicken, fish, pizza, and need to try cookies on the smoker.

To each their own. I've had rare steak/burgers, not for me.

They do say revenge is a dish best eaten cold, maybe we should change it to medium done ! You got the last laugh anyway.
This kind of revenge is best cooked to medium over an open fire and comes with ketchup, mayo, onions, tomato, lettuce and pickles. Now where's the smiley wearing a bib?

I hope you weren't too badly hurt, seriously though. It sounds awful. I know people get killed every year by stampeding.
Badly bruised but nothing as permanent as her trip to the butcher. Mae is the only animal I've ever raised that I was glad to see leave. I still felt a little bad but no animal is worth a person's safety.

It's funny really, cows do look so placid and being vegetarian you think they would be immensely pacifist ! Maybe it was something the other cows said that put her in a foul mood ?
Most cows are very docile and wouldn't hurt someone intentionally. You might get stepped on or smacked with a tail but nothing like pinned against a wall between the horns of a 750 pound Dexter cow. She was the first cow I ever bought and the seller saw the flashing neon SUCKER! sign on my forehead. No more cattle for me.

If anyone's interested in how beef animals are raised before they get to the feed lot you can read Confessions of Pioneer Woman. It's Ree's blog. She married into a cattle family. She talks about calving, branding, separating, growing, etc. I've learned quite a bit about how beef is raised. It's not bad until they get stuck in a lot. Now I'll hush and stop hijacking the thread. Sorry John!

I like my hamburger mooing, but to be safe we cook it medium rare. Although maybe it's still not safe, I should probably just eat it rare anyway....

We buy our hamburger meat from a place that has reliably safe meat. I wish we could raise our own cattle, but then if we did I wouldn't have the heart to eat it.

I know it, huh! But when I have other people over to eat, I cook it how they like it.

I with you on this one. I would NOT be able to eat meat or poultry if I saw it walking around first.
