  1. I was just at Wholefoods yesterday and they were running a burger special. Also, I think the special today is buy one bag of charcoal, get one bag free. Have a great weekend!

      My favorite burgers start with my picking an unusual whole cut of meat and having it ground, preferably just once. I've had whole briskets ground; flank steak is wonderful. When you start with freshly ground beef, chop gently with soaked bread and egg to bind, plus a little salt and pepper it's s different experience altogether.

    2. I buy my meat (ground chuck) from Joe's Market in Ardsley. A family run shop where they grind there own meat. An old time butcher shop/grocery. I buy my veal bones from them when I'm making stock.
