The best hamburger seasoning you’ll ever use

The best hamburger seasoning you’ll ever use

When I was about 20 years old, I was eating a hamburger I had cooked on my BBQ that was purchased frozen by my wife at the time, and I couldn’t get over how bland it was. No amount of external seasoning could make it better, so I began testing my own blends of seasoning until I found the sweet spot. I’ve been using the seasoning for meatballs, hamburgers, and even poor man’s beef jerky (made with hamburger).

The great thing was how little was needed to give every day hamburger that pop everyone wants when they bite into their sandwich. Over the past 25 years I’ve been asked hundreds of times for the recipe and I’ve refused with the ole joke “I could tell you, but then I’d have to kill you!” routine. Someone asked yesterday and for some reason, I handed it over. Now that it’s out of the bag, I thought I would post it for everyone to enjoy.

Here it is!!

1/4 cup coarse sea salt
3/4 Tbsp course black pepper
1/2 tsp white pepper
2 Tbsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin (I use just a pinch more)
1/2 Tbsp dried basil
1/2 Tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp chili pepper
1 Tbsp chili flakes
1 tsp dried mustard
3 Tbsp dried onion

Combine all ingredients in a tight sealing jar and shake to mix thoroughly. Per 1 lbs. of meat use 2 Tbsp of mixture for seasoning while mixing, and sprinkle dusting during cooking. I also use this to season chicken and steak on the BBQ.

If you find the mixture too salty, swap out the course sea salt for Mediterranean Sea salt (pink) or just reduce to 1/8 of a cup. You can also minus the chili flakes if it’s too spicy because you still have the white powder to give it a light hint of heat.

If you use the recipe and like it, or you’d like to let me know some changes you’ve made and would like me to try, drop me a line on the Contact Us page, or by a comment below.

Patrick Ross’ Letter. 

Patrick Ross’ Letter. 

Edit 10-04-17

Here is Patrick Ross’ latest tempt at humour.

First off, the youseepee.ca domain was never held by my company. It was bought and sold privately. I also can’t be help liable for comments made by a third party. Also, make note he now wants $400,000 in damages, when he has zero assets. He’s still in bankruptcy. Good lord. Time to end this charade.

It’s with great pleasure to post my Statement of Defense. This has been sent to Patrick Ross.

Edit 08-04-17

Today I was served with a Statement of Claim by Patrick Ross where he’s suing me for $100,000. Since this is a public document, I’ll post it here for everyone to read.

This is Patrick’s initial Notice of Libel where he took issue with something I said. I complied with this letter.

As you can see, since June 6, 2017, Patrick Ross has talked about me on Twitter 192 (daily tweets will be added, and I won’t be talking about him on Twitter) times. That’s more than 3 tweets/day. Most state I tweeted a threat in which he’s determined was towards Derek Fildebrandt, which I never did. Not once. I never mentioned Derek. He’s flat out accused me of it 132 times since June 6, 2017. Patrick has also stated that I would need to sexual assault (roofie) his girlfriend to sleep with her. He states she said it, but it was through his account, which he is responsible for 100% of the content as per the Twitter Terms of Service that he agreed to, to use the service.reviously removed the content that upset him, and posted my apology. This of course was more than satisfactory, but not in Patrick’s eyes. He just said on Twitter that I never made an apology, and apologies tend to feature the words “sorry” and “apologize:

Well, here’s my letter:

You can clearly see at the end of the very first paragraph the words “I’m sorry”. It’s there plain as day and that _all_ that is required by law. So not only is today’s Statement of Claim laughable, it shows his to be vexatious. He filed after I complied. He then continued to libel me, stating the apology wasn’t good enough, and accused me of dressing in women’s clothing. You’ll notice that he’s also tagging everything in #ableg and #abpoli. This is just bringing more attention to his harassment and libel of me to a broader audience, as he accused me of in his Statement of Claim.

I retracted my statement due to the continued harassment by Patrick, essentially proving my opinion of the man from dealing with him for over two years. Let’s not forget that I in fact sued him for libel last year. Here’s some of his work:

If you read Patrick’s Statement of Claim, you’ll see he’s doing this because of his mental health, yet has harassed me for 2 fucking years. What about MY mental health? I’m quite open about it. He’s referred to me as “crazy” many times, but he took issue by me referencing how he looked when we met. Here you can see I even tried to show compassion to him:

All I can say is this is going to be interesting, because not only will I file a defense, unlike his previous legal dealings, I’m counter suing. I wanted this Patrick. I should have never let you off the hook last time. That was my mistake and I never make the same one twice.
