It's the start of grilling season so I made up some cheeseburgers and tortilla chips for the afternoon.

I started grinding my meat this year. Fresh burger meat all the time. I usually go with about 25% lean sirloin and 75% fatty chuck. I only season the sirloin. Usually give it a rub in some seasoned salt and cajun blend.
Cube it up with the chuck and grind it right before it goes on the grill. Here's a picture of me grinding my meat.
Then here's my secret. When you normally add your cheese, throw on a slice of salami first. Adds a lot of flavor. I used some horse radish cheddar for an extra kick.
The burgers came out great, medium rare, really moist, nice spice. The buns were perfect. And for an added bonus, here's a picture of the fucking gross meat donut I pulled out of the grinder.
