This recipe jumped at me from Sean Brock's restaurant, The Husk. I scaled it back to feed my family, but you can easily up the recipe by half to make 10 burgers if desired. He has a labor intensive sauce that he serves with his burgers, but my family liked Taco Bells' Cheesy Jalapeño salad dressing on theirs and it saved me a lot of time.the photo is Sean Brock's.
