Man B Que is a huge part of my life and I spend a lot of time promoting the whole concept. It’s great, I travel A LOT for work and everywhere I go I tell people about it and they always seem to respond with great enthusiasm. Never is this more true than when being around family. Unlike at work where everybody wants to give me a “great” recipe I “have” to try, my family is chill. They want to get to know what this “Man B Que” thing is that I have been obsessing about and more importantly, they want a peek into the grilling maniac mind so they can understand this odd passion.
I’m out in Connecticut for work and I’ve been spending time with my aunt Armandina and my uncle Al, they wanted to take me out to dinner, so they let me pick the place. I decided to go to a “world famous” pizza place that everybody raves about. Big mistake. (I’ll rant about this on the upcoming East Coast Pizza Wars blog) Anyway, I felt like a big ass, so I figured, the best way to counteract a bad food experience is with a great one. I didn’t want to rely on some restaurant, so being the “Man B Que Godfather,” I dug into my meat eating brain and created a new burger just for them. I named it the “Apology Chipotle Burger” because “I’m Sorry Aunt Armandina and Uncle Al Chipotle Burger” was way too long.
This is a smokey flavored burger with just the right amount of bite. The chipotle seasoning gives it the smoky flavor and combined with the pepper jack cheese give it a bit of a bite. My suggestion is to serve these on a nicely toasted and buttered kaiser roll and topped with either slices of avocado or a large scoop of guacamole.
