FLAVOURTOWN OLYMPICS: This Juicy Lucy is for Johnny Shusty!!!

They’re already calling it the Miracle on Ice 2018–so says the Canadian curling commentators, anyways. A couple years back, 10 guys tried out for the U.S. National Curling Team, four guys got cut…and then they formed their own Team of Rejects, beat the other two teams and made it to the Olympics. But this story’s just getting started, son!

After losing four of their first six games, Team USA reels off six in a row, beating Canada not once, but twice, and defeating Team Sweden for their country’s first ever gold medal in curling. Dude, that’s so gangster, it’s like that time when 3rd Bass beat down Henry Rollins, bro! In honour of John Shuster and the rink from Duluth Curling Club, I’m about to throw down one of Minnesota’s greatest culinary creations, the Juicy Lucy burger:

OK, I’ve never been to the 5-8 Club or Matt’s Bar in Minneapolis, so the best cheese-stuffed cheeseburger I’ve ever had was at Royal Meats, this massive meat palace just a raised double takeout away from the Rogers Centre. They call it the Royal Deluxe, and they don’t just put beef in this burger–it’s got pork, it’s got veal, and then it’s stuffed with ham and goat cheese, bro! I’m gonna hurry, hurry hard this one straight to the button…and by the button, I mean straight down my piehole!!!

LE BURGER WEEK: Le Legendary Juicy Lucy

Now, I’ve never met the guy, but I’m guessing that Guy Fieri’s favourite burger is the Juicy Lucy. It’s beefy on the outside, cheesy on the inside, just like him! And there’s this one Triple D joint in Minnesota that serves it up so hot, they actually burned the place down. So when I found out there was a real-deal, neighbourhood joint dishing out a Juicy Lucy for Le Burger Week, I had to get my butt over there, pronto!

Now, in case you didn’t know, when they make a Juicy Lucy, they take two burger patties, and put cheese in between them, so it cooks up on the grill as one big, cheesy patty. And at Big Moe’s Burgers and Fries, they cook it up right, so that you get a bit of cheese in every bite, instead of a nuclear cheese assault–cuz that would be game over, dude!

Of course, I got loaded mine up with the kitchen sink, cuz that’s how I roll. Lettuce, tomato, pickles, onions, jalapenos, and some thousand island dressing, for that extra kick. These guys know how it’s done, son! They even have a Chicken Juicy Lucy, but I dunno, that might be too outta-bounds for me, bro…
