Plain Jane Burger with Bacon

The bacon itself – thick cut and smoky – was quite good per se.  However, because of the thickness, it was too difficult to bite into and thus didn’t work as part of the burger.

The burger as a whole, with the bacon, and the cheese, and all that sauce, but without any fresh vegetable toppings, was kinda heavy.

Still, the quality of the beef and the “smashing” technique make for a good burger at its foundation.

Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan – after several days of watching nothing but Trek (see also 8.349 Budae Jjigae), I think that DJ is starting to see the light.
