Calgary - Store bought hamburgers

sackman Jun 11, 2007 08:55 PM

This may be a little off the usual topic, but I'm having a BBQ this weekend and will we have decided to do the traditional burger and hot dogs. My question is, what are the best store-bought burgers. I'm not making them from scratch for a number of reasons, time being a problem, and there's going to be a lot of people. I've asked a few friends, and I'm getting all sorts of different answers, and I don't usually buy hamburgers. So I'm wondering what the best store bought burgers are. Any tips for dogs would be welcome too.

    Thanks all for the posting, I'll let you know how it turns out. Might have to have a little taste test.

      I tried the frozen burgers from Second-to-None meats on 4th Street, and I thought they were tasty. Also, the fresh burgers from Costco can be good, but I always flatten them first because they're so thick.

        Sunterra market makes great burger patties, fresh and ready to barbecue.

          I've bought the frozen burgers from Costco quite a few times for work events & they are consistently very good.

            There was an article in one of the Edmonton papers not too long ago. The columnist rated a number of store-bought patties, and wrote that he would rate Costco's burgers 5 out of 5. The columnist, however, did not include the PC burgers in his sampling as far as I could recall.

              I bought the PC frozen Bison Burgers and they're not bad either.

                Burger Inn. They sell all varieties of frozen burgers. Anyone that has eaten there knows that the variety of burgers is amazing. Everything from beef, elk, bison, salmon, chicken, turkey...... They might even sell their kobe beef burgers frozen.

                This is SUCH a pedestrian reply, but we bought a box of frozen President's Choice sirloin burgers from RCS, and DAMN they are good. I know there are more lux choices around, but I love these.
