My Friends here are a few tips to really enjoy this recipe: #1 The meat and the liquid (the sugar seasonings etc) must be COLD when you bring them together. If you take the mixture immediately off of the heat and then add it to the meat you're going to have problems. After you've finished the cooking of the mixture place it in a container and stick it in the fridge for a few hours. #2 Add the liquid in small amounts. When you notice the meat is just beginning to become saturated stop adding liquid. You may only use 2/3's of the mixture and that is OK. The burgers will still be plenty sweet and flavorful. #3 When cooking turn your grill up to high and pop those patties down. After you've loaded up your grill close the lid and leave them be for 5 minutes. NO PEAKING. After 5 minutes return flip close lid and don't peak for another 5 minutes. When you return they're done and you're all set to eat. We've really enjoyed this recipe and I'm looking forward to many more BBQ's featuring the Stowe Show. Thanks! Read More

There was much too much liquid the meat fell apart and even after I added additional meat to compensate for the sogginess the burgers turned out so dry they were inedible. If you've been curious about this recipe save your time and your groceries! Read More

These were AWESOME. This recipe is so unique for hamburgers- SO GOOD! Scaled down the recipe to make 5 burgers and only used 1/2 the recommended amount of worcestershire and brown sugar. GREAT recipe! Read More

This recipe is absolutely delicious... we've made it three times... two times it turned out GREAT... this last time we had too much liquid...but we were able to make things work. I think the problem was we changed the original portion size. Be aware... and ENJOY! Read More

After a couple of years of family and friends preparing this recipe for many people we have come up with some excellent ideas to make the burger even better!!!!!Add a pack of Onion Soup and Ranch Dressing to the mix along wit one egg for every pound of meat! Make sure you add the prepared seasoning (the boiled ingredients) a little bit a t a time until you have reached the desired texture while mixing the meat! Enjoy! Read More

The flavor and juiciness of these was really wonderful - 5 star. But I'm only rating the recipe 4 because I'd be really afraid to add hot liquid into cold meat. Thank you to tscheidler who suggested chilling for a few hours in the fridge. And thank you to the Stowe Show for a keeper recipe! Read More

This is my favorite recipe on the whole site!!! Everyone who i've made this for begs me to make it again. I make it for dinner atleast 2 or 3 times a month. And when you've made the mixture and it looks like water and slop don't be afraid once slopped on the grill for a while it turns into the most delicious burger! Read More
