Okay Princess, let's try to enlighten you shall we?

"Burger" is short for "hamburger". I know this in and of itself is a little confusing since the typical "burger" is never made from ham.

A "burger" is ground meat. Usually ground beef, but can also be a mix of other meats or animals. Ground venison for instance is still "burger".

What you posted a picture of is a sandwich. Not a burger. I know, there's no sand in your creation, but seriously, that's a sandwich.

It's really just a salad on a roll.

How bout this one and No I havent even thought about it.

World's Largest Hamburgers, Clearfield, Pennsylvania

When it comes to burgers there is no correlation between size and "better". In my experience bigger burgers are often dry and nasty.

An 8-12oz patty tends to make the best burger and if you mix 8 parts 80-20 ground chuck with 2 parts ground lamb, season with salt, pepper and garlic powder then add in one raw egg per pound with some Parmesan cheese and bread crumbs from fresh Ciabatta as a binder you get an awesome burger patty.

I like everything you said. I personally, would pass on the bread for a binder though. never needed a binder for patties.

Also, I absolutely LOVE having chopped onion mixed in with meat so it cooks with the meat.

Other than that - if you start the burgers, I'll bring the beer!!!! :cheers:

That's approaching Bratwurst zone. You can make parties out of leaner meat than cow, like Buffalo. Or use other animals like lamb.

I dont believe size is relevent to dryness or taste. Truth is the cheaper cut of ground beef is the least dry and the best tasting. Remember whenever you talk meat and not dry, its fat that makes it moist. 98% lean ground meat makes a dry burger at medium rare.

Theres a place here that makes 20 ounce burgers they are outrageously good. I ve had it once and my wife and I split it.
