    What is the proper portion of beef for the hamburger seasoning

    I just made Emeril's rub last night and this recipe is real close to that one. Anyone have any comments about using the rub rather than the burger mix?

    Excellent seasoning! I've used a lot of rubs and seasonings for burgers, this is the best! Even the left over burgers were great! It makes enough that you should have left overs for your next batch of burgers, but put a note on your jar or whatever you keep it in so you know how much to use and don't have to google the recipe, then join food.com so you can review the recipe and warn about noting how much you need for your next batch of burgers :)

    Man this seasoning is out of this world, but a little spicy. It tastes great, but about 30 minutes afterward my butt cheeks were screaming for mercy. I felt like a cross between the Olympic flame and the opening scene from Top Gun where the fighter kicks into afterburner and blazes off the carrier deck. Overall I loved the recipe.

    Great recipe! I didn't have enough Paprika so I ended up using 1 tsp of that, and I added 1 tsp chili powder to make up for it. I also didn't put that much ceyenne, just a few dashes and it was good! I could have added more heat from what I put though. Next time because I'll definitely be making this again! Thank you!

    The #1 mistake people make when grilling burgers is they handle the meat too much. Mixing it in a bowl toughens the meat. Why would you encourage this Emeril? Listen to Bobby Flay! Add seasonings after the patties have been formed, not before.
    Thanks so much for this fab recipe. I tried it out on my husband he loved it. It was spicy, but not too spicy for him.

    As noted, used 1/3 the amount of salt called for
