    It's no.19 - The Southen Bell



    A 1/2 pounder of beef with bbq sauce, pickles, pepper slaw, 2 slices of gruyere cheese in between 2 thick slices of sour dough. Oringinal

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    NOTES: I used a mix of sirloin and stewing steak for this one. Lots of flavour but not as juicy as I would have liked. I think it's back to the ground rib eye! Extravagant, but lovely. I iz grindinz up dem steak foar moar burgaz.

    I made the pepper slaw by thin slicing peppers and making a balsamic vinaigrette.

    I used pre-sliced pickles instead of cutting up whole ones.
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------

    The sour dough loaf I brought ( Gails ) was lovely. It's chewy and dense with deep flavour and a chewy crust. As a bread, it's really wonderful but in place of a burger bun I felt it was wrong. It was far too chewy and dense. A burger bun should be soft and light but with a bounce and give. I had to cut the burger in half on the plate - which I hate to do but I needed to because of the nature of the bread and also it was a fucking huge burger lol

    The pepper slaw was nice in there but not great. The pickles of course work really well with burger and if making my own I always include them. The Gruyere cheese is just lovely with a burger. It's deep nutty flavour and texture work well with the beef. I only wish it was a bit more melty,<-made up word alert. The smokey bbq sauce mingles well with the hunk o beef and slabs of cheese.

    All in all I really liked this bad boy but not one of my faves.
    Bumped for the new page.

    That's an amazing looking burger. Tell you what - that looks more appetising than the one you copied it from. Now, you are the master.

    These pictures are getting really mouthwatering! Hmmmmmmmmm.
    I haven't had burger in years. The occasional stop at a Mc Donalds or Burger King maybe 3/4 times a year not counted.
    Went to a restaurant last Friday and ended up taking a burger though. Looked decent but this definitely beats it.

    If I die it will be in service of burgers! A noble death.

    Cheers :-) If you are in London, have you tried byron or meat liquor? They do mighty fine burgers. Byron is a chain that's all over London and expanding into Kent.

    Haché is much better than both of those imo, MeatLiqour isn't really that great any more, the cocktails are still nice though. I've never much liked the meat they use in Byron and their burgers are bland.

    I'm with kinda with you on meat liquor! I always thought it was over rated.. That said it's still damn fine burger. Byron could use with seasoning their burgers. I always have to add sat BUT, and for me, their burgers are awesome.

    Hache is on my list tho its bit far out for me :-)

    Great thread this.

    Fwiw, I find Hache alright. Certainly better than gbk, Byron etc, but it's also double the price. My favourite is Dirty Burger at the moment. Filthy little things that come in retro greaseproof paper which is glued together with melty cheese. Mmmm..

    @wobbly_Bob Your burger making skills are incredible. They look more and more like the photoshops at the site. I can't believe you have the stamina for it.

    Top work!

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    I think that last one looked better than the original.

    Does the website know that you're doing this? I wondered if you could blag some merch off them maybe.

    @Razz i like the food at MeatLiquor, but the place really smells funky.

    There's a place just off Carnaby Street called Kua Aina http://www.kua-aina.co.uk/ which is great.

    On a trip to NY recently, tried Shake Shack - which is due to open in Covent Garden later this year - and the burgers were fantastic.

    @smoothpete - No, never thought about that. I guess they might be interested although I'm not using Wisconsin cheese so maybe they might view me as a dangerous renegade lol

    Had a look at the web site and looks good. Lava cooked burgers, you say?! Interesting. Since it's central London will be easy for me to get to. I will try it next time I am in town. Thanks for the heads up :-)
