10 Gourmet Burgers

We pardon this interruption from Fly Fishing to share a gourmet story about meat!  How can one go wrong with these babies!  Honestly, would you headbutt one of these?
Gourmet Burgers Gracias Yahoo!

Memorial Day grillfests are behind us, but what charred, meaty treats are you planning on serving this summer? Coffee-Rubbed Cheeseburgers with Texas Barbecue Sauce, maybe? Or Grilled Turkey Burgers with Cheddar and Smoky Aioli? To give you some inspiration (and to shake you out of any burger rut you may be in), we turned to Canadian barbecue expert Ted Reader, dubbed “the crazy Canuck barbecue kingpin” by GQ magazine. His new cookbook, Napoleon’s Everyday Gourmet Burgers, written in collaboration with Napoleon Gourmet Grills, has tips for everything from grinding meat to shaping burgers to BBQ etiquette. And while it includes a recipe for the “Great American Cheeseburger,” it’s Ted’s more, shall we say, creative burger creations that caught our attention. Here are ten of the most awesomely crazy burgers ever, courtesy of Ted Reader.
