As you may know, the new video series "Feed Willie," where we feed Willie (note: I think it just hit me that this is a play of Free Willie? Or is it not and did I just call Willie fat? He's not), launched today. Episode 1 we had to whip up a double bacon cheeseburger and a Kraken spiced rum rum and coke.
As everything that happens at Barstool, there is of course controversy. Willie decided that our burger "wasn't cooked" he said it had "raw meat" in it. This is the burger he declared uncooked:
note: That's a DOUBLE CHEESEBURGER with BIG patties and a brioche bun and it looks like a White Castle slider in Willie's hands.
THAT'S A COOKED BURGER! THAT'S NOT EVEN MEDIUM RARE, IT'S DOWNRIGHT MEDIUM! IF ANYTHING I'D ARGUE IT'S OVERCOOKED! THERE'S A THIN LINE OF LIGHT PINK SURROUNDED BY A LOT OF GRAY, TEXTBOOK MEDIUM!
Now I will concede this: the burger was ok. Once Willie decided it was undercooked I ate it and it didn't knock my socks off. It was cooked, but it wasn't like the best burger in the world or anything. It was like a person on Instagram, looked great on paper but was pretty blah in real life.
But that wasn't the argument! The argument was that it wasn't cooked, which it decidedly was. If Willie had said it was just fine tasting then I would've had to agree with him, instead he launched a smear campaign and told me that I undercooked a burger in a cooking competition, something which I've never done and I never will.
