  • Like if you think George is the Bob Ross of hamburgers.

    • @Lukas LW Oh he was grinding, he was in indignity.

    • @Ava Bell Promoting? I think it's pure awareness. We all know that name is homophobic, what to do though? I can't blame George. He was very uncomfortable discussing it.

    • @Ava Bell jesus christ. did you not realize his facial expression of disapproval? you're whining just to whine at this point, ignoring all logic.

    • This type of sandwich does not appeal to me. Sorry.

  • From Wichita, Kansas! Nuway is fire!! The root beer there is undefeated

  • iowa is actually interesting yay

  • "Smells like ozone" probably means the thing needs to be serviced and the machine greases changed. If it hasn't been already. 😄

  • HEY EDITOR, this isn't Tim and Eric awesome show, stop stealing edit tactics from it. Be original

  • 👍👍👍👍👍

  • Maidrite Quincy Il specialty. Restaurant is called maidrite. But it's not all beef and not fried.

  • Roseanne introduced me to such a sandwich.

  • Oh Jesus Yes! My earliest burger memories are Steak & Shake and Maid Rite. Maid Rite is freaking delicious!

  • Texas and Oklahoma just hate each other so much that if one state thinks mayo on a burger is bad the other has to think it’s good.

  • Food good Guy not funny

  • This one seems like a great way to make a mess lol

  • I hope George Motz is doing this as long as Mr Rogers and Alex Trebek

  • Imagine Motz's Burger Palace - where you could order any burger you want! :O

  • 1:50 starts the relevant portion of the video

  • You should do a Nebraska special on the Runza!

  • mustard on the bottom overpowers the tongue.

  • That should be called nothing other than "sloppy joe" i, a Midwesterner, have not heard it called anything else but that.

  • He laughs at everything 🤣but on a serious note I must add that I now have an un healthy burger addiction n I might have to check into the priory! I hope they serve burgers at lunch if not I'll settle for a pizza or a juicy Lucy! She sounds nice! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • Scrambled Hamburger is what my family calls it.

  • I know it's simple but I eat at a Maid Rite in Cedar Falls, IA. It's a few blocks away from me and it is amazing.

  • More of a disorganized Joseph

  • You’re not doing yourself justice if your burger doesn’t have black pepper and garlic powder as well

  • Model #33.... Freemasonry

  • Lollipop

  • I was excited to see this but left disappointed. This recipe is missing so much. Makes me question the accuracy of all of his other recipes.

    • @John Smith I've seen variations with cider vinegar, mustard and a pinch of sugar, etc. Definitely more than what he's doing here. I've never seen loose meat done with just salt.

  • I really would like to like him but in short he sucks, boring,

  • "Okay honey, you want that squoze or unsquoze?" *Confused screaming*

  • Damn, stfu and cook the food

  • Rare time that my state gets shouted out XD leggo IOWA

  • Theres a coney island place in Detroit called Lafayette that ahs this in a hot dog bun with mustard and onion and chlli..its so good lol

  • Is this jack black’s brother

  • I have been eating what my mom referred to as a Pennsylvania Dutch version to this since I was a child. A bit of variation here, please bear with me. This version uses 1.5 lbs of ground beef, we use a 85/15 mix, but we get our beef from the farm. !st we fry one large onion and one large green pepper in butter and olive oil until translucent, then fry and mash the beef in that combination. At that point you drain the fat, then add 2/3 cup of brown sugar, 1/3 cup of white vinegar, and 1/3 cup of apple cider vinegar, 2 tablespoons of ketchup (sorry George), 2 teaspoons of mustard, 1/2 teaspoons of both salt and black pepper. Now you turn the heat down to a low simmer for about 30 minutes, stirring every 8 minutes or so. No bun preparation necessary, I prefer a potato bun, with a slice of cheese on top then bread and butter pickles, give the cheese time to melt somewhat. One of my favorite go to's, just throwing it out there, something a little different but AMAZING!!!!!

  • I love these burger videos

  • At the start of the video I thought there was egg in there. Might not be a bad idea. But then no mustard. Rather ketchup.

  • *It's called a chopped Cheese George*

  • Taco?

  • Loose meat?🤣🤣 u mean sloppy joe

  • keep pressing the zero button very fast on your keyboard, trust me it's a unique experience

  • Finally made these tonight. They were surprisingly good. I was kind of dubious, but these rock.

  • If you order your Maid rite "wet" they leave some of the hamburger grease in the meat for you. You can order them dry, wet or extra wet. Enjoy, and thanks from Marshalltown for the great videos!

  • I can't help but think his TV in the background is like Michael Scott's TV at home.

  • I love you for showing me that the Mocha Malt is a thing!

  • I’d like to see George tackle the Fleischkuekle. Many probably won’t know what this is, but this is the North Dakota staple on their take of a burger, sorta. It’s basically hamburger inside of deep fried dough. If anybody is curious about it google it and check it out!

  • So you close your eyes, bite into a loose meat sandwich, and then you play a Jack Attack with the ingredients?

  • the burger show has an amazing resource with George.

  • Smacks was a hambudge joint in kansas city and closed in the 80's. the hickory buger was mypick also the smackoroo. can you look into how they made the hickory buger.

  • Legend has it he is still saying "its my job" to this day

  • I'm eating this with ketchup because why the fuck wouldn't I

  • Go check out the Canteen in Ottumwa Iowa

  • What no cheese what about all of us cheese eating rat bastards

  • Not from the Midwest, the first time I heard the term “loose meat sandwich” was on Roseanne, and I thought it was a joke.

  • Oh that machine is it, my milkshakes would bring them to my yard.

  • I feel like the JonTron meme of "Yeah, But why would you do that?". Cause why wouldn't you just make it into a patty? Why wouldn't you just do a Sloppy Joe. This seems like a worse version of the two.

  • Des Moines born and raised!

  • No this is Iowa. 🤣🤣🤣

  • ive lived in iowa all my life. these suck. i even got one at taylors once.

  • Call your wife this and see what happens.

  • i really like the "bloopers in" style of your show

  • Growing up in MN we would go to A&W(this was in the 80s) and they had what they called a swiss burger, it was a loose meat sammich and was amazing. Here's the copycat recipe I found for it Original Swissburger Recipe 5 lbs. Hamburger 1 cup yellow onion (minced) 1 tsp Accent flavor enhancer Seasonings 4 oz. Catsup 3 tsp. Mustard 3 tsp. Horseradish 3 tsp. Worcestershire sauce 5 tsp. Salt ¼ tsp. Pepper 1. Thoroughly mix catsup and seasonings in a 1-cup measure. 2. Add warm water to fill the 1-cup measure and then pour over the hamburger in the cooking pan. 3. Add 1-cup warm water. 4. Add 1-cup minced yellow onions and 1 tsp. Accent. 5. Stir for 15 minutes as it comes to a boil, then simmer for 25 minutes, stirring regularly. Cook it longer if it is too moist.

  • Grew up in a little town in Ohio that sold these! The only difference is they cooked the meat with beer and they'd put cheese on it too. Gotta love a few maidrites and a cold beer after a long day

  • coked up

  • There are some real burger gems in this show, and this is not one of them. It reminds me of old Russian "Navy style macaroni".

  • He's so enthusiastic about what he's making that even when I don't think I'm interested, I still want to try it myself!

  • wow shoutout to Dovies!!!! Im from close to there

  • A few years ago, I was looking at Made-Rite's website. They were actually building a Maid-Rite in Wilson, NC. I couldn't believe it! I was 20 minutes away! I went the 1st day they opened. The place was packed. My sandwiches were great! The next time I went, there was hardly anyone there and sadly, they eventually closed. I guess NC wasn't ready for loose meat sandwiches but I'll always fondly remember my visits to Made-Rite.

  • If you've ever been to a Maid-Rite you'd know it's only appropriate to use butter as a condiment.

  • This is how I normally cook my burgers initially to make sure they are cooked thoroughly. Now I just like it this way.

  • We call them crumb burgers.

  • Can First We Feast please do a show that isn't 100% based around meat? I am no vegan or anything, but not exactly trying to eat a bunch of meat either.

  • Idk about this one for me I cook it in the fat using a pot the bun gets some fat absorbed into it. For seasoning I do lawrys, black pepper, garlic and worcestershire. I do onion, pickle mustard and yes ketchup. Chips and a shake also too good. I know what I’m making for dinner

  • Des Moines: French for “the Moines”.

  • It's called a "Krumbly" here in Oklahoma

  • As a Texan, I will almost always put mayo on a burger. Call me a sissy, I don't care I'm eating a delicious burger.

  • This is now my favorite episode.

  • He said "OH MY GOD", and I thought of bob's burgers lol.

  • As an Iowan *kicks the door down and poses for Corn Dominance* IT'S CALLED A MAID-RITE! Also I'm a Marshalltown Native! Taylor's is an INSTITUTION. For clarification, a big reason why Taylor's has the whole "Give you a side eye if you ask for Ketchup" is they actually make their Maid-Rites from Chuck Steak, and SURELY one doesn't put Ketchup on steak? And they actually have 2 cookers George, one where the meat is drained(If you ask for a Dry sandwich they give you this) and one where it isn't(if you ask for a Wet they give you one from there) Most locals always get Wet or Half-wet just for the extra juiciness.

  • Holy balls, how had I never heard of a mocha malt milkshake? I'm'a have to replicate that bad boy.

  • He’s as wholesome as Alton Brown. Can they meet and do an episode please?

  • As a kid in Missouri, we would melt Velveeta cheese in the beef then serve it. Not too much just enough to hold it together. Plus no ketchup

  • Did you go to that Taylor's Maid Rite in Marshalltown, Iowa in 2008 for the "last" Modern Life is War show?

  • He must've visited the lunchbox.

  • We still have a Maid Rite in the small town where I live. Love that place! I also have one of those mixers though mine is a tad older as it has the little nub on the top. Love this show!

  • Hi George, I love your videos. Just wanted to take a moment to tell you about a place in southern Illinois that serves loose meat sandwiches. They're name is Maid-Rite and they are very old & well known in the region. There is one in the town of Christopher, Illinois. Check it out.

  • This looks good. dry, but good.

  • The selfish jar perinatally memorise because van intriguingly wrap absent a stimulating porcupine. thundering, nosy water

  • I'm road tripping through Iowa in July. What is the address for Taylor's I need to stop by!

    • 106 S 3rd Ave, Marshalltown, IA

  • I find it funny he keeps showing Maid-Rite, doesn't mention them, and then says not to put Ketchup on it (like Maid-Rite does)

  • In China we have something called a 肉夹馍 (rou jia mou). It's sort of similar to this but no cheese and with varying bread stuff.

  • A chopped cheese ... nyc

  • I live in Iowa. I put ketchup on my loose meat sandwich. I'm a rebel. Don't mess with me. I'll take you down with me.

  • Goerge Motz is the absolute legend

  • The elegant basket currently fear because composer synthetically happen beneath a hard cafe. savory, sad soy

  • needs more ketchup

  • i think wichita's nu-way is boiled or steamed not browned. cheese whiz pickle onion mustard

  • Love the content of the shows, have been following for Motz for years, but the production and editing of the cut aways, gags, and bloopers becomes repetitive, annoying and distracting.

  • Sorry, but George is so much better then Calvin or whatever his name was. I like the other dude but super keep George on. Love these videos man.

  • whats with the ketchup shaming here. ...some people like ketchup on food. ...enough of the ketchup shaming. ...lol

  • Maid rite
