One of the cravings for those on a low-carb lifestyle is a great burger. When eating out I'll look for an In-and-Out and/or Carl's Jr (Hardee's for those on the East coast) cause both of them have a low-carb burger option. Instead of using a bun they wrap the burger in lettuce leaves. I'm sure that other burger joints will do this too but the 2 that I mentioned are readily available to me when on the road.

Oddly enough, I had never cooked hamburger patties on my MAK so I decided to give it a shot. Started with Angus Beef Sirloin ⅓ pound frozen patties. Smoked them at 180ºF for 30 minutes. Seasoned the patties and bumped the pit temperature to 375ºF until the internal temperature reached my desired temp (~ 20-30 minutes). Wrapped the burger in iceberg lettuce leaves with red onions, tomatoes, pickles, cheese, mayo, & ketchup.

Yes, I could of grilled these burgers on my MAK 2 Star configured for direct cooking using the FlameZone but I wanted to see how they would come out configured for indirect cooking. I wasn't disappointment. Who needs that nasty old hamburger bun anyway ...
