In the second episode of The Burger Show, host Alvin Cailan teams up with burger scholar George Motz to learn about the diversity of burgers across the U.S.
For many FWF fans, George is an obvious choice as a Burger Sherpa. Motz has logged thousands of miles in his car, surveying America's burgerscape while publishing milestone books like Hamburger America and The Great American Burger Book that changed the way we think about burgers.
Just like barbecue, the burger has absorbed local traditions—in places like Tennessee, Oklahoma, and Connecticut—that reflect a unique sense of regional pride. From the glory of deep-fried patties, to the mechanical wizardry of steamed cheeseburgs, Alvin receives a master class in regional burger styles.
