Oh how I love a burger hot off of a charcoal grill. In fact I almost jumped over a neighbor's fence on the way home from the gym this week because the smell of their grilled goodness was so intoxicating.
For the Fourth of July, I have no doubt that a lot of grilling will be had by all. And while I love the basic ketchup, mustard, and pickle topping as much as anyone, I think it might be fun to do a burger bar for a big party.
To get inspiration, I'd definitely study the menu at Kuma's Corner (the most kick *ss heavy metal burger haven in Chicago). Here are some inspiration exciting combos:
YOB - Smoked Gouda, Bacon, Roasted Red Peppers, Roasted Garlic Mayo
High On Fire - Siracha Hot Chili Sauce, Prosciutto, Roasted Red Pepper, Grilled Pineapple, Sweet Chili Paste
Pantera - Roasted Poblano Pepper, Bacon, Chedder and Monterey Jack, Ranchero Sauce, Tortilla Strips
Now don't those inspire you to be adventurous???
