I hope everyone had a wonderful labor day. The last unofficial day of the summer was a great grilling day for us, but sadly may be our last with our old grill. The bottom has rusted out again for the third time, so instead of continuing to repair it (it also has unsteady old legs), we’re in the market for a new one. We’ve always had charcoal, and we’d like to replace it with another charcoal grill, but the lazy part of me wants a gas grill. Maybe after some shopping around we can find a grill that suites our needs.
Yesterday I made these easy chipotle burgers on the grill. They were so good, and did I mentions easy? It’s only 4 ingredients for a wow burger. These are amazing on the outdoor grill, but would also be good on an indoor grill or in the skillet.
