There used to be a place in Stowe, Vt called The Shed that made the best hamburgers. It is out of business now. The hamburgers were said to be have been made with beer. I can't replicate the burger so I am searching for a good beer burger recipe. I have checked on-line and the recipes I have tried don't cut it. Anyone have any good recipes?

I won't tell.

Heck, if anyone has a good hamburger recipe, post it here. I enjoy a good burger.

IMO to have a good burger is to start with a good blend of meat. And nothing pre-ground in your standard grocery store case will cut it. (not talking about of course any specialty types of stores etc)

I often have the butcher there grind me a blend of beef cuts.

So far I have tried combos of short ribs, beef brisket, sirloin and chuck. Favorite of ours in terms of juiciness and taste was the brisket by itself untrimmed. Second favorite was the short ribs and chuck.

From then all you need to do is shape the burgers and salt/pepper the outside heavily and grill to desired doneness. Supposedly salting the mixture before grilling dries it out. And at first I balked at "unflavored" hamburgers but since I get them ground, I see why you don't need all that extra seasonings.

ETA:
I can see adding a touch of beer would be tasty. Or even basting the burgers with a cooked down beer sauce. Googling now for ideas.

I scanned our previous threads and don't see any beer burger recipes. I did find several burger recipe threads and this one looked like it might be of interest to you: Have you ever been able to cook a burger at home that tastes like a burger at your favorite burger joint?

Good luck!

thank you for the link. I searched hamburger instead of burger and did not see this thread. I hate being redundant.
