I cooked Primos, which some of you may remember from the now-defunct Mad Dog's on 24th Street near the UT campus. Parts of Richard Linklater's Slacker were filmed in its parking lot/dining area, and I used to eat one or more Primos a week, because they were just so damned good. A Primo is a hamburger with raw bacon, onions and jalapenos mixed in to the ground beef before cooking, which makes a spicy, flavorful burger that is second to none if made correctly.
I've been trying, and failing, to make a Primo correctly for 20 years now, and learned only four or five ago to use a Cuisinart to get the bacon, onion and jalapenos right before mixing in with the beef. Now I'm the Primo master, and none can withstand my power. NONE!
I can't wait to see Sabrina wolf one down ten years from now. As soon as she's done, she'll wipe her hands on my shirt and run off to play.
