  • In the second episode of The Burger Show, host Alvin Cailan teams up with burger scholar George Motz to learn about the diversity of burgers across the U.S. Just like barbecue, the burger has absorbed local traditions—in places like Tennessee, Oklahoma, and Connecticut—that reflect a unique sense of regional pride. From the glory of deep-fried patties, to the mechanical wizardry of steamed cheeseburgs, Alvin receives a master class in regional burger styles.

    First We Feast's "The Burger Show" is a new web series that explores everything about modern burger culture—from the rise of Instagram-bait stunt burgers, to the enduring influence of regional styles—through the eyes of Eggslut chef, Alvin Cailan. Alvin's breakfast-sandwich empire in Los Angeles put him on the culinary map, but it's burgers that are his true passion. Now he's in NYC to understand what drives his obsession, and he's linking up with folks like Adam Richman, Matty Matheson, and Binging With Babish's Andrew Rea to help him along the way.

    No it’s not you’re wrong the hamburger was invented in New York City in little Italy when a guy who was frying up his meatballs was impatient and flattened the meatball into a patty to cook faster he then threw some onions and bell peppers on the grill to cook with the meatballs and put it all in sliced bread to make a sandwich with mustard and that’s how the hamburger was invented there was never any Hamburg steak in Germany they did invent the ground beef though in Hamburg and that is why it’s called a hamburger

    You forgot to mention Memphis Bar B Q. We have a place called Dyer's! They have used the same grease to cook with for over 100 years as the man says. When they changed locations, the grease was carried to the new location under guard. Dyer's will even dip the bun into the grease if you ask them to. Can't eat them everyday but don't knock a Dyer's burger until you've tried it. Some kind of special indeed!!! I'd have to pass on the "steamed burger" just doesn't work for me. Southern boy wants fried.
