Welcome to futures io.

Welcome, Guest!

This forum was established to help traders (especially futures traders) by openly sharing indicators, strategies, methods, trading journals and discussing the psychology of trading.

We are fundamentally different than most other trading forums:
  • We work extremely hard to keep things positive on our forums.
  • We do not tolerate rude behavior, trolling, or vendor advertising in posts.
  • We firmly believe in openness and encourage sharing. The holy grail is within you, it is not something tangible you can download.
  • We expect our members to participate and become a part of the community. Help yourself by helping others.

preferences, got em or you got em

One thing I love about a perfect grilled burger is a grilled bun that isn't too bready. Nothing annoys me worse than having a mouth full of bread with just a little meaty goodness.

Pickles is also pretty crucial most of the time. Cheese must be melted.


What are your guys preferences?

Agree on not too much bread, need to taste the innards!
What really isolates burgers for me is being cooked medium rare. I just found out at Red Robin they don't do this anymore, has to be 155 degrees minimum. I talked the server into making it "pink" as possible.

Anyway I promised some pics!

Here is the Double California Burger from Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburger. Solid burger, they are generous with their vegetables, 2 tomatoes and a full onion slice.

Since I mentioned 2 restaurants I was forced to eat 2 burgers, don't feel bad for me

Here is the new Southern Charm Burger from Red Robin. Has hickory bacon on it, honey bbq sauce, and extra sharp cheddar. Despite not being medium rare, it sure was tasty

A few bites later (you can see some pink in it, but still not medium rare <-- what a case of first world problems huh)

Just saw this burger thread. We just got a Freddy's in town, pretty good burgers. I still think for chain restaurants, nothing beats Red Robin.

I guess as far as a chain burger (in the Atlanta area) I guess Five Guys is my favorite. Been awhile since I had Red Robin though. I just always thought they were kinda expensive.

They are, but I do know where my money went when I go there. That Southern Charm burger was 13bucks vs 5 bucks for the California double. Was it 8 dollars better ? Nope.
Will I still go to Red Robin on occasion ?

ok, burger time for me. I used what I had on hand so no bun or anything else, just ground beef and onions. So its more of a 600 gram beef steak with onions fried in butter, it was good eating! I cooked the onions with the burger and used some steam to get them soft a la White Castle.

for me, I love all sorts of burgers so pickles and melted cheese are good though some times I like them with just onions. Unfortunately here in Bamberg Germany, there is one little burger stand that serves a mediocre product and a McDonalds & Burger King. No one is shooting the lights out with burgers. I usually make them at home.

Well now I am into burgers again thanks to this thread.
Homemade style! spinach, onions, tomatoes, 1/2lb patty on small bun
Medium Rare ? Damn straight- I think my apartment is now the only place in town that allows medium rare burgers
