Lean Ground, 10% fat, per 1 lb
1/2 yellow onion chopped as small as you can, diced
4 TB Chopped garlic, more if it comes from a jar and is not fresh
2 TB "seasoned" pepper (black & hot pepper blend)
4 TB Sweet Baby Rays or Mr. Stubbs BBQ Sauce
4 DROPS of Dave's Insanity Sauce (1 drop per 1/4 pound)*
* Be careful. A "drop" is the smallest amount you can get out of the bottle at once. You may be able to tolerate more, but think of your guests. If
they can't eat it, you've deprived them of the pleasure because it is too hot. You could try the Michael's Training Burger at 2 drops per pound, or
Wimp Burgers with none just to add some humiliation. If they start making fun of you and claiming the burgers aren't hot enough, you know what to do.
They'll be compelled to eat the 8 dropper you give them and they'll only make fun of you once.
Bun: A larger than normal onion bun is best
Extremely thin slices from a large Vidalia or Walla Walla Sweet onion, enough so that one slice covers the entire bun.
Extremely thin slices of tomato from a Roma or similar
Thousand Island sauce on one side
Grey Poupon Mustard on the other side
Dill pickles or dill pickle relish
If you want cheese, use a sharp cheddar.
Serve with Tim's Cascade potato chips and a good potato salad. The salad can be used in an emergency to quench the heat of the burger if necessary.
Also serve with your favorite ice cold beer.
You want thin condiments rather than thick because otherwise you can't get your mouth around the bun and you'll wind up with a mess and having to eat
it with a fork.
