    @The Modern Rogue Killer reply/reply, I love the subtlety (should that be reply squared or reply plus reply equals RETORT? I love the way you 'do science') he he heh! I get the idea that Kent has done this before ( I KNOW......., maybe I'm just extremely perceptive......) but I have a NEW challenge for you; get ordinary 'stuff' from the store and do a 'blind-test' against the many other 'perfect' burger recipes that exist...( I think that Kent would wound me with his knife if he saw me adding crumbled crackers to 'half-decent' beef, just as well I didn't mention the onion powder and Worcestershire sauce and black pepper...) The Fat Rogues blind burger bonanza! All respect to Kent and 'to you , sirrah's, scant regard, the scorn of a nation of warriors'....and other stuff like that....having made the 'Perfect Burger' with Kent, in the name of science, put it to a test!! ( I don't actually 'scorn you', but you're skating on thin ice re the execrable knife making episode), just saying? Other than that, happy days and pax vobiscum, dudes! Fat Rogues Blind Burger it!
