        Sean shows a much cooler side in this video, than he normally does. On hot ones he just stays calm, but here he fucking throws food in the air, and catches with he's mouth! Who has ever done that before?

              If you think there is good food in the Midwest you have very low standards, or no standards at all. Stopped at 0:22. Quit smashing the beef down. Let it cook naturally bozos. It’s not complicated.

                          I'm from Chicago, love the food scene here, and I am a burger guy; however, Chicago Dogs are number 1, seven toppings to Heaven. The lacy-edge burger is fantastic, but not nearly so classic as Deep Dish Pizza, which says Chicago much more emphatically than any hamburger could.

                            Wait. You're going to use Upton Sinclair's "The Jungle" to describe what makes a good hamburger? Are you insane?

                                  That big dude makes a mean burger, but seems very ignorant at times. Some people don't like onions like Tony Hawk, Marshawn Lynch doesn't give a fuck about umami . He needs to be more emotionally intelligent and create those same burgers, but make a small addition to fit the persons tastes. Example you could give me the best burger in the world but I won't enjoy it if it has tomato, it's all I will taste.

                                                A burger should never cost more than 10 dollars. It’s a burger keep it simple. I am a burger enthusiast, and honestly the more expensive burgers are no better than any diner burger. Just my opinion guys.

Chicago is different from Milwaukee, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Des Moines, Kansas City, or Indianapolis. I personally say Chicago is different for the worse, but some will argue with me. I personally would take a rack of ribs over a burger, but I guess that's just Missouri speaking.
