Got your whole Memorial Day barbecue planned? You might want to scrap it.
Yesterday, 4505 Meats announced their Burger CSA just in time for the holiday. Which means that rather than paying Ryan Farr himself to come to you, you can bring his "Best Damn Cheeseburger" to the party yourself (and maybe project the following video on a wall or something).
For $55, you get 10 patties worth of ground grassfed beef, homemade Parmesan-scallion sesame seed buns, 10 slices of Gruyere cheese, plus lettuce, red onion and secret sauce. That works out to $5.50 a burger. Not a bad deal when you see what goes into it. Which is why you should watch this video of Farr in action. (Ladies who love the butchers, deep breathing now.)
There are two pickup options available.
• Friday, May 27th at Local Mission Eatery on 24th St., 12 pm–2 pm
• Saturday, May 28th at the 4505 Meats stand at the Ferry Plaza farmers market, 8 am–11am
Of course burgers do not make a barbecue alone. Corn is just showing up, and you'd do well to serve Chow.com's recipe for Grilled Corn with Cayenne, Lime and Cotija, maybe some of Tyler Florence's deviled eggs with fried capers and of course to finish Pinkie's Bakery's decadent and gorgeous coconut cream pie topped with shaved white chocolate.
