It is time to stalk the beef aisle for a cheap smaller brisket. Throw that into your cart and get down to business. Smoked Brisket Burgers, yeah, you read that right.
Things are starting to heat up around here, and as much as I would like to hold out until the first official day of summer, I think we will be kicking off my weekly grilling series a full month early.
I never realized how solar powered I was until this year. It seems the moment the sunrise peeks across the sky and the birds start to sing, I can't bring myself to sleep any longer.
I am waking up earlier, working later, and have more energy
This was all set in stone the moment I got my first whiff of a far off charcoal grill, I knew it was flame on for me. The time of year when I take a freezer inventory and try to manipulate all of my recipes for the grill or smoker. When I first saw these burgers over at Crumb, I'm pretty sure I had to wipe drool off of my key board. I staked the beef aisle until a cheap smaller brisket happily landed in my cart and got down to business.

This Smoked Brisket Burger will prove how versatile Brisket really is.
So get your smokers ready. This isn't the quickest burger to get on the table, but once you taste that fresh ground brisket smoked to perfection, you won't be buying frozen patties ever again.
