Growing up in Mississippi as a child my father was a butcher and one of the best times of my life before he past away was when he would teach me how to ground my own beef and blend spices together to make a perfect burger and we would just spend time at the grill talking about life as we grilled burgers and experimented with flavors, just to see how each flavor cultivated with the texture of the meat as the fat of the beef rendered to the heat, and my all time favorite was the mango Salsa Bacon BBQ smoked Gouda Cheese Burger was the best ever.. This burger is not only topped with these flavors but stuffed with Gouda cheese, bacon & salsa can you say over kill to the fullest!!
