I love a1 on any steak yummy. I like a 50/50 burger. 50% ground chuck and 50% chopped up center cut bacon. So greasy and so good. I use Sara Lee whole wheat buns.

I hate steak sauces and A1 has got to be the worst. Save money on buying sauce and buy a better steak instead.

After cooking steak sauces, especially A1 are better on a piece of bread than on a burger or a steak. But, a meaty grocery store unseasoned burger is just about inedible without something on it. So, it has its place. Not in my world, but certainly some burgers need something.

Another approach is to take a pat of butter 1/4" thick and drop it on the burger or steak right after cooking. It is a far better "sauce" than A1, and about the same calories and nutrition as a puddle of A1.

Seriously. Try a large pat of butter, melted right on the burger, ribeye or whatnot. If its still not enough flavor, drizzle a little Worcestershire sauce into the butter. Dip a piece of bread in the A1.

The butter is cheating. But, its why the steak in some restaurants is so good. Sometimes they brush the butter on and stick it back under the broiler for a few seconds till it flames up. Salty and juicy and a little crisp. Its still cheating.

Speaking of which, in case anyone does not know how to cheat at pancakes, what you do is get the pan the right temperature, then drop a half pat of butter into the center, pour the batter into the butter just as the edges of the melt start to turn brown. When you are ready to flip it, float the other half pat on the wet side of the pancake, flip it over and you have a salty crispy edges pancake no one can resist.

Just sayin.

My take on the "simple burger" it's just plain ground chuck with a few select seasonings, mostly peppercorn and chili powder. Cooked on the smoker with hickory chips for about 2 hours and topped with tomato and raw Vidalia onion, then wrapped in lettuce. No buns to get in the way!

I would imagine a meat loaf would be great cooked in a smoker!

Rebel, do a web search of bacon wrapped or weaved smoked meatloaf .

Some folks stuff it with cheese and other things too .

It just makes me drool just thinking about it .

I'm in absolute agreement with the OP. I've found myself doing insane things with hamburgers just to make it taste good and do something different here and there, like pineapple teriyaki burgers. I miss simple great tasting hamburgers, and am on a personal quest to find the best solution for me personally.

The bread is another huge issue I've always had. I hate basic cheap hamburger buns.

Seasoning? For me just a little salt and pepper. Once in a blue moon I'll take a walk on the wild side by adding a little Worcestershire sauce to the meat and work it in.

I also like Buffalo burgers.
