Gourmet Burgers: The DLM Difference

Twenty years ago, we knew we wanted to do something to make the proverbial “burger” anything but basic. I mean, when you start with ground chuck that is lifetime free of antibiotics and hormones from trusted farms, you already have the makings for burger nirvana. But our appetite told us that grillmasters sought something more elaborate, exciting, and albeit gourmet. What began with a few mainstays like the Cheddar Bacon and Black ‘N Bleu burger quickly grew into a full-blown line of DLM Gourmet Burgers. We certainly had fun coming up with crave-worthy combinations of ingredients to give each DLM Gourmet Burger a distinct personality and flavor profile.

Our Gourmet Burger varieties are seasoned with fresh ingredients by our trained butchers who then hand-shape into generous patties. In addition to several ground chuck variations, we kept the creative juices flowing and also have a few burger varieties featuring our locally raised DLM Non-GMO Turkey, DLM Natural Lamb, DLM Natural Beef ground sirloin, and ground DLM Air-Chilled Chicken. All, of course, abide by the pillars of our Meat department to feature fresh meats that are lifetime free of antibiotics and hormones and fed a 100% vegetarian diet. “The result was the best of the best. We initially envisioned our DLM Gourmet Burger line being a seasonal item, but the demand spoke for itself and we found ourselves featuring these year-round,” says Jack Gridley, DLM VP of Meat&Seafood. With that in mind, grill on!
