Summer is here and that means one thing is for sure. It’s officially time to fire up that grill in your backyard, invite some friends over, and grill up a batch of these fantastic weed burgers.
Let’s face it, we all love burgers. But if we’re honest with ourselves, deep down in our soul, we know that the average burger is missing something. We can throw all of the herbs and spices at them, but there’s always one herb we’re missing. You won’t want to miss out on creating your own cannabis burger, and we’re here to show you how to achieve the burger of your dreams!
Fire Up The Grill
First things first, you’re going to need a few tools handy to make the best weed burgers possible. Before you start grilling, make sure you scrub down your grill grates with a hard-wired grill brush. This keeps your grill nice and clean and will give your burger those ad-worthy grill marks.
Next, you want to make sure you oil your grill grates; the last thing you want is that delicious weed burger of yours getting stuck when you try to flip it. Whilst we’re on the topic of flipping, only flip once. I know, it’s truly hard to resist the temptation of looking like a “Master Chef” and flipping those bad boys high into the air, but the truth is, the more you flip them and flatten them, the more you will squeeze out all of your highly flavorful juices. We really don’t want that.
The most important thing to remember is to cook your cannabis burger thoroughly. You want to hit the 160 degrees mark on beef, and it’s best to use a meat thermometer and insert horizontally for the most accurate reading.
Cooking With Cannabis Oil
Cooking with cannabis oil or any other marijuana extract can open up your culinary adventures to new highs. While many of these extracts can generally be found at your local dispensary, there are many methods at your disposal depending on the type of extract you need for your creation.
For this recipe we will be using a simple cannabis oil, just make sure to stick to the directions and you will find yourself “well done” after this delicious meal.
Time To Make The Patties!
Before we take this trip, there are some essentials that you’ll need to round up. Below is a list of the basic ingredients needed, but when it comes to your finished product, I can tell you that there is no wrong way to dress it up on your bun.
– 1 lb ground beef
– 2 cloves of garlic, minced
– 2 tbsp of cannabis oil
– 1 1/2 tsp of salt
– 1 tsp of freshly ground black pepper
– 1/2 tsp of dried basil leaves
– Hamburger Buns
– Cheese of your choice
– Ketchup, Mustard, or your condiment of choice.
How To Make Weed Burgers
First thing’s first. You’ll want to follow the instructions above to make sure that your grill is clean and ready to go. Pre-heat it to high and let it do it’s thing while you’re making these delicious patties. Grilling takes patience, so make sure you wait until the grill temperature is hot enough before throwing these cannabis burgers onto it.
In a large mixing bowl go ahead and mix together your 1 lb of beef, minced garlic, salt and pepper, dried basil leaves, and the star of our recipe, the 2 tbsp of cannabis oil.
Once you’ve mixed it thoroughly and your hands are now covered in this glorious weed-infused burger mix, divide it into 4 – 1/4 lb balls and flatten them out between your hands to form them into patties.
Now it’s time to put that clean grill to work. Place your patties on the grill and close the lid, you’ll want to cook them for 3-5 minutes per side depending on how thick your patties are. Remember, avoid the temptation of flipping them multiple times, you want a minimal amount of flip to keep the maximum amount of flavor.
Once you are ready to pull them off of the grill, it’s time to dress them up in a nice and tidy bun with all of your favorite condiments.
As mentioned above, you can dress these burgers up in any way you prefer, but let us suggest kicking them up just one more step by sautéing some onions and sprinkling them with a little bit of blue cheese and a dab of dijon mustard.
The most important final step is to enjoy your delicious weed burgers and let the summertime vibes wash over you as the effects kick in. Happy grilling!
