First...in order to build this empire I need a FANTASTIC! burger. I can make a good burger from a frozen puck by using my custome made seasonings and all of its embelishments, but good is not good enough...this burger will need to be "OUT THE GATE!" So I will need to be able to make these burgers in house.
I will also need to figure out how to keep these business secrets secret.
What kind of buns should be used? regular, potato, Should I toast them on the griddle.
Does anyone have any suggestions on doing so. I would like to know what types of meat to grind toghether along with percentage of fat content. I cooked a frozen burger with a 30% fat content and even when I cooked it well done, it was still very juicy. The only problem is that this quarter pound burger shrunk quite a bit making it the same size as a regular burger bun. Although it taste great, it did not look very impressive size wise.
In the process of serving the best burger, I am forced to serve fries. So I have to go for the goal of making some fantastic fries to go with the burger. Buying frozen fries from a distributor would be the easy route...I want to make fresh cut fries..DOUBLE FRIED. If anyone can lend a hand with this information that would be great. I would like to know what kind of spuds to purchase, what is the BEST oil to fry them in...veg oil, beef tallow etc. what are the degrees to double fry them and the over all process of making a great fry. I am not trying to win any awards for healthy food...I would rather have the food taste great than worry about how fattening it is.
This brings me to my last question. When It comes to shakes, The shake would have to be off the hook as well. Do I use a premium ice cream, or do I use a custard, Do I purchse the ice cream or custard already made or do I try and make them myself.
Soda...buy or make my own?
I want peole to walk away and say "that was the best burger, shake and fries that I have EVER had. I want my food to be a "no contest" when people are thinking about these foods.
I know this is a TALL order but I want to bring the quality and service of food back to what it once was.
