Burgers of the Month for November ’12

Filed under Burgers of the Month, Independent, Marketing

The roundup of burger joints’ monthly specials will continue to run in its box on the right sidebar, but I’m giving them full post attention occasionally, too, because there’s always so much culinary creativity that it would be a shame to miss this feature. If you overslept because of Daylight Savings and didn’t update your menu in time for inclusion or if I just missed your special, let me know in a comment below. There’s always next month.

Not surprisingly, Thanksgiving-theme turkey burgers are popular for November (check out Stack’d Burger Bar’s). But not everyone has gone holiday. Don’t miss Blue Moon Burgers’ Spicy Chicken & Waffles, Prime Burger’s Spicy Barnyard Burger or Thunder Burger & Bar’s Bond Burger.

  1. Burger Jones’ Mo-Bacon Surly Burger – We start with a bacon infused English muffin bun; we quickly sear our 7 oz burger in rendered bacon juice and melt pepper jack cheese on top. Next we add two pieces of thick cut jalapeno bacon and our sweet Surly infused bacon marmalade. Ooops almost forgot to brush the bun with our hand whipped baconaise and a pile of onion strings! $10.99 with $1.00 of every burger sold going to the Prostate Cancer Foundation… Smash!

  2. 5-Star Burgers in Albuquerque (and elsewhere) offers a Thanksgiving Turkey Burger this month. It’ All-natural turkey breast meat, ground in-house, topped with sweet-potato waffle fries and cranberry aioli.
