    It used to be that McDonald's burgers were cooked and sold within 10 minutes or thrown out. These days they cook the meat and stick it in a warming drawer until purchased at which point they assemble the burger.

    I think this has made a difference in "freshness".

    I grill with 80/20. I would never describe the patties produced as “greasy”. McDonald’s burger are inarguably “extremely greasy”. Undeniably so. Makes you wonder why? Flat iron probably has a lot to do with it. Pre cooking patties and then storing them bulked together could certainly be the culprit.

    I'd rate McDonald's the least greasiest of the major chains and certainly far behind places like Culvers and Freddies. They're usually bone dry due to the warming trays, actually. To the point where they had to change their entire process to use beef that isn't frozen ala Wendy's.

    I meant the new fresh beef burger. I was saying that it’s much better than their other burgers. But is too greasy for me to classify it as good. I don’t know. I’m too involved in this conversation. I don’t even like fast food burgers. I rarely opt for a burger at a real restaurant. Not even a burger guy. Haha. What am I doing here?!?!?

    I bet he told stores about how a pack of cigarettes used to cost a quarter too. White Castle is the place to buy burgers by the dozen and often used to see who can eat the most burgers in a small time frame. Most people can wolf down 10 very easily.

    Some of these burger creations are getting out of hand. Peanut butter? How soon until they make an ice cream sundae burger? It's possible seeing how they're shakes that have bacon it in.

    Just in case any of you think I'm lying about the bacon in a shake.

    Oh, I know that. Had a big family reunion in Chicago that involved three consecutive late night White Cartle runs of about 200, then another 150, and yet another 150 in the space of two hours.

    500+, everyone kept underestimating how many they’d eat and we’d have to send someone out to buy more.

    Yes, cooking on a flat top retains more of the fat, but it's what most people desire in a burger. Wacth a show like Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives, everyone uses 80/20 and cooks on a flattop. Medium is the default cook temp for maximum juiciness and minimum chance of dying from E. Coli.

    You’re about four decades too late.

    Back the the mid-70s Hamburger Henry in Long Beach CA had a Polar Burger on the menu which was served with soft serve ice cream on it.

    The creator of the restaurant passed away in 2015 and the store is now closed but he had some really crazy offerings.

    I like peanut butter burgers. I mean, if Tahini is a savory sauce, why not peanut butter? I love panang curry a whole lot. That’s not far off.

    There’s an African cafe called Max’s in Mesa. They’ve got a delicious soup that’s peanut butter based and had spices and bone-in chicken pieces in it. Delicious.

    Mark's Cafe in Tempe has Mulligatawny soup on the menu, a British soup with east Indian origins. Chicken broth base with heavy cream, chicken, curry, rice, onions/celery/carrots, and granny smith apples to finish it off.

    One of my favorite local restaurants, hit that place up for breakfast frequently.

    I used to live under 2 miles from that place and never knew about it.
