    By the way, at the cookout yesterday My friends came out with a case of frozen pre-paddy hamburgers and I thought to myself that they wouldn't be all that good. I have not had very much luck with bulk frozen paddies. I was very surprised by the size, minimal shrinkage, and flavor. It was a very good burger if you are cooking in bulk. Here is a link if anyone is interested and wants to try them. TNT Burger . We had the 8oz. A small store near here sells them but I don't know where to find them elsewhere.

    I am not a fan of pre-seasoned beef patties, but I know there are some very good ones out there.

    What's the big deal about these green egg grills? I keep seeing all kinds of stuff about them online.

    We fired up the grill at work around 2:30am and cooked up some cheap burgers, brats, and hot dogs. Nothing too fancy, but it hit the spot!

    Ok, so a weird change of direction here. The Wife got bored and wanted to go out. We wound up eating at a Japanese restaurant. I had shrimp and scallops, she had steak, both with the usual fried rice and veggies. It was good.

    My personal experience with my Big Green Egg: It is EXPENSIVE but mine was a gift of Christmas, birthday, valentines and any other gift occasion that you can think of for a year.

    It takes about 20 min to get it fired up using an electric starter. The advantages of it are that I can use it as a grill or a smoker, I can keep the temp within about 20 degrees of where I want it for an extended period (I have used it for up to 10 hrs) and it has this magical ability of keeping whatever you cook on it very moist. All you have to do to convert it to a smoker is put the "plate setter" in it for indirect heat and put some soaked wood chips on the coals. It only uses natural charcol. It will cook at a very wide range of temps. I NEVER put starter fluid on ANY grill, especially not this one. You can taste the starter fluild if you use it, so I don't.

    To cook a steak I get it up to about 700 degrees with all vents wide open. For an 1 1/2 inch steak I cook it 2 min on one side, 2 min on the other, and flip it one more time for 2 min with all vents closed. The steaks come out a perfect med rare every time.

    I have had mine for about 2 years and I bet I have not used my gas grill twice since then. I grill 3-4 times a week.

    Ah. When I do personal/recreational cooking, I rarely measure - I've spent many years at work creating and duplicating products that most people buy pre-mixed/pre-made, so my eyeballing skills are finely honed. As an example, a lot of people buy Montreal Seasoning - I make it as needed from the ingredients in my kitchen. I know what something will taste like as I'm adding ingredients....I can quite often read a description/ingredient statement, put those ingredients together, and I'll be on target with the taste.

    When I cook/create for someone else or for business, I have to measure and record (both in culinary format as well as formula percentage) to give an accurate recipe so the product can be easily scaled up for mass production or replicated easily and by anyone.

    I do measure functional ingredients when I bake - as you know, the accuracy of those ingredients is critical in baking because of the chemical reactions.
