So I’m trying to branch out with this pizza oven. The idea of grilling things at very high temps intrigues me. For this round, I tried doing burgers inside of a Cast Iron pan. They were good, but I feel like they could of been better. Here is what I did.
I got my Unii 3 Wood Fire Pizza Oven up to a high temp, roughly 850 degrees.
1 lb of 80/20 Burger made into 2 patties lightly coated in Oil and seasoned to your preference.
Once the Pizza Oven hit a temp of about 850 degrees, I slid the pan in and closed the door to let it heat up.
I left it in there for about 5 minutes and pulled it out once it starts to smoke slightly. I pulled it out and set the 2 burgers in side by side.
I put it back into the pizza oven and closed the door for 2 minutes. After 2 minutes, I pulled it out and flipped the burgers. I continued to do that about every 3 minutes or so until it hit 150 degrees.
Then I coated the burger in Mozzarella and threw it back in for another minute and a half so the cheese could melt nicely.
Once the cheese melted, I pulled them out and let them rest on the counter for a few minutes.
While they rested, I made a homemade Burger Sauce very similar to a Big Mac Sauce. Real Quick, Real Easy.
- 1/2 Cup of Mayo
- 1/8 Cup of Ketchup
- 3 TableSpoons of Sweet Pickle Relish
- 1 teaspoon of White Vinegar
- 1 teaspoon White Sugar
- 1 Teaspoon of Black Pepper
- 1 Teaspoon of Tobacco – Optional but I like some heat
Mix it all together in a bowl. Use immediately or chill. This is basically Thousand Island Dressing, but I still Like it.
Throw it on the burger with your favorite toppings and enjoy!
