Something simple after a long day of work.......

Lets face it, after a long days work either on in the kitchen line, a fire ground (training or non-training), construction or any hard manual labor, you want to eat something simple, quick and most importantly tasty. As we did training at a local fire academy last week one of the boys busted out good ol, hamburger....the way mom would make it (all the sliced bread vanished so I got the hamburger bun) so I figure why not break out a  hamburger seasoning recipe that would be so good, it would be "smack yo mama good!". Notice that the burger is not accompanied with fries.......great proper fries take time....I recommend some of your favorite potato chips. The chips being eaten here are Herr's Ripple Chips with Texas Pete's Hot Sauce (these do not suck!) Don't forget the beer....outside of work of course!

Hamburger Seasoning (rub)

2 Tablespoons salt
2 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons brown sugar
2 Tablespoons ground cumin
2 Tablespoons chili powder
2 Tablespoons black pepper -- freshly cracked
1 Tablespoon cayenne pepper
4 Tablespoons paprika
2 Tablespoons onion powder
2 Tablespoons garlic powder

  1. Mix together and had 1 ounce of seasoning for every 2 pounds of ground meat.
This seasoning could also be applied to brisket, chicken, ribs for bar-b-queing.
