    QUALITY of the beef is an entirely different issue that was not addressed in the article: https://www.eatthis.com/fast-food-ch...-beef-burgers/
    "They have a lot of stupid people that vote in their primaries. They really do. I'm not really supposed to say that but it's an obvious fact. But when stupid people vote, you know who they nominate? Other stupid people." -- James Carville on the plethora of low-quality GQP candidates in the mid-term election.

    Not everyone can have hand-tamped, pumpkin-farmed beef.

    Shake Shack burgers are pretty good.

    "Pure ground beef" A.K.A not adding any ingredients to improve the texture or flavour.
    Cheap, consistent, and marketable.

    A small step up from "genuine cow product" I guess.

    Kwik Trip Kwik Trip - Wikipedia sells a variety of made sandwiches whose pedigree I care not to know.
    Half the price of Mickey D's. The breakfast sandwiches are better.

    They omitted White Castle.

    https://www.whitecastle.com/pdfs/nut...dient-List.pdf

    "Beef Patty: 100% USDA Beef. Seasoned with salt and pepper. Cooked on grill with onions and hamburger buns that contain wheat."

    And probably every other hamburger chain.

    A challenge: find a burger chain that uses something other than 100% meat (pro tip: there are valid reasons for blending beef, pork, veal, or adding gelatin, a beef byproduct).

    Many years ago on the road I stopped at a burger place, I *think* it was Steak and Shake, it was superb, had to wait for it cooked to order; Was thicker than the average but most of all was *really seared* crisp on the outside without being overcooked, they must have a volcano-hot grill. Not cheap.

    In recent years the neighbor of someone I know, was getting rid of a pricey grill (I think Jenn-Air(?), stainless steel on top but not on chassis and it had rusted to where the wheely axle had collapsed), but was way better than my friend's grill so we take it, I add some wood structure to support the axle, works good as new. Well that six-burner (under the hood) bad boy had an auxiliary infrared *searing burner* on the side with a ceramic brick with holes to distribute the propane. Neighbor said it never worked. I look underneath, whoever assembled it didn't get the propane steel line aligned with the inlet to the burner, was sticking below. I pull apart and assemble proper, fire up, blows like a blast furnace on high. I made some medium-thick burners, 1 minute 45 seconds on each side and then resting on a plate produced burgers with a dark-brown crispy sear but just barely still pink inside, delicious. At some point I'll have to find a portable searing burner like that or steal that off another grill being junked.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    Why not get a local smith to put a nice piece of iron on a handle for you? An old time salamander.

    My son in law did a camping roadtrip, Portland to DC. He raves about Culvers, a mid west chain.

    Wow, you're right. I had heard about it, perhaps 10 years ago on public radio, thought it had been quashed, but not, not only still used in the USA but able to be labeled as "ground beef", according to wiki:
