Sometimes you win, sometimes you do not. This time I really tried but failure was inevitable. Annually Fuddrucker's has their 3lb Burger challenges to celebrate Fat Tuesday, and ring in the Mardi Gras celebration. At the behest of Wreckless Eating's Jeff Fu, I called and reserved my place in what would become a burger challenge history. The Fuddruckers' 3lb challenge is pretty straightforward. The challenger is to complete a 3lb Burger (before cooking), 1lb of french fries, and all the soda or drinks you want. Explicit Language. Parental Discretion is advised.

I met chef Kyle Schutte when he was the executive chef at Roadhouse L.A. (now closed permanently). The man is a culinary genius, and his food certainly makes for great leftovers. That's a big deal in my world. Chef Schutte has gone on to being the chef at Wood & Vine in Hollywood, CA. On this episode of The Burger Crawl I try his Deep-fried hamburger. The concept was truly foreign to me, but after tasting it, I was taken by surprised, and truly enjoyed the texture.

Daddy O's Rockin Cafe is a new dive-style restaurant located in Downtown Upland. They have great burgers, great deli-sandwiches, and Thrifty brand ice cream. It is a local establishment owned and operated by Sheri Dyches, who has a deep passion for burgers, and hearty food that uses locally-sourced ingredients. Wreckless Eating's Matt Zion and I decided to have lunch here, and I think video was a pinnacle moment in my friendship with Wreckless Eating's Matt Zion, as well as the relationship with you, my YouTube audience. It comes on the cusp of my first appearance on Wreckless Eating's Main Show series (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kju5JFBJWHM). Matt and I found ourselves having lunch together at Daddy O's Rockin Cafe in Upland, CA. He gave me bits of advice, and assisted me with opening up on camera, and being myself. It was truly a pleasurable, and enlightening experience.

Like many the Pizza Burger is my favorite burger at Slater's 50/50. I was glad to see it added to the menu, but disappointed that I would not have it to look forward to every February. Well, that sentiment has been quelled with the Stuffed Lasagna Burger. Sadly, however, I am not sure if I am looking forward to having it again next year.

The California Breakfast Burrito Burger at Slater's 50/50 was a great way to have an all-day breakfast in burger form. Well, Scott Slater has outdone himself with January 2016's #BOMNation Burger, The French Toast Benny Burger. It is an open face burger with a runny sunny-side up egg, a 100$ sausage patty, chipotle sauce, and a syrup glazed sour dough french toast under bun.

My relationship with Red Robin is fresh, and new. Like any new relationship it is filled with hope, joy, and temperance. On this week's episode of The Burger Crawl, I try Red Robin's Southern Charm Burger, which I keep calling the Southern Comfort Burger because when I think Southern, I think whiskey. LOL.

Annually, Slater's 50/50 has their Thanksgiving Burger for the month of November. In 2013 I wrote a blog describing my first experience with the burger, and it is wonderful to see that much has not changed since them. They [sadly] removed the mash potatoes, but that is a fight I will have to pick with Scott Slater himself. If you are reading this Mr. Slater, I would like to have a word with you my friend.

I would to say I have had everything the culinary world has to offer, but I have not. For the first time I try a Chicken burger patty, and it was astounding it. The entire experience was light, refreshing, and enriching. Upon completing the Russian-spiced Double Chicken Burger at DOMA Kitchen I felt alive, and eager to get on with the rest of my day. Unlike a beef or heavier meat burger, this burger truly gave me life.

I absolutely love Asian food. I think I have said that many times, but if the point has not yet been driven home...IT MUST BE KNOW BY ALL OF THE INTERNET THAT CUE LOVES ASIAN FOOD. I love burgers too, but my absolute favorite food is Asian, in that tone, I have searched and searched to have a Asian-fusion burger that is really good and holds true to the values and elements of Asian cuisine. When I went to Hopdoddy to film for the first time, I did not know what to expect. What I received from my first bite of the K-Town Burger was astonishing and mind-blowing. As of this episode of the burger crawl, The K-Town Belly Burger at Hopdoddy is my favorite Asian-fusion burger.

The Cinnamon Crumb Fried Chicken Burger at Chomp Eatery in Santa Monica, has Pumpkin Spiced aioli. That has been the focus of the media coverage over this sandwich. However that is not my focus. My question and concern is whether or not this "burger" is a burger at all? In my humble opinion a burger can use just about any meat, but to qualify as a burger, said meat must be ground and formed into a patty. This is a very good, and well executed fried chicken sandwich, and all the flavors work together to create an experience worth trying. The Cinnamon Fried Chicken Burger is available through the month of October 2015, and possibly will be extended, but I would not count on a extension, get your's today!

I come from the school of thought that a burger patty is a ground meat formed into a patty then grilled, charbroiled, or fried in a skillet. I believe that the term burger is a cooking and preparation technique as well as a type of food. Thereby the Cinnamon Crumb Fried Chicken Burger at Chomp Eatery is without a doubt, a fried chicken sandwich!
