CHRONICLED HEREIN is the compiled scoring for BURGERING THE FIRST at the eatery known as the CHARCOAL PIT.
TWO Officers of Baron Uther's Royal Gustatory Expeditionary Regiment and SEVEN Officer Cadets participated in Burgering the First.
MEAT - 3.44
JUICE - 2.89
TOPPINGS - 4
SATISFACTION - 4
BUN QUALITY - 2.44
GREASE FACTOR - 3.89
LORD ECKSTEIN'S FACTOR - 4.56
TOTAL - 25.22 out of 35
Regiment was split between two booths next to each other with one brave cadet positioned between the 2 booths in a folding chair. All officers scored the hand made patties with a 3 or 4 in the MEAT category.
However, JUICE scores varied wildly between the two booths as one booth, which included the Esteemed Major himself, getting overcooked burgers. The Major's burger was deemed to be so overcooked as to receive a score of "1". On the opposite extreme, the Captain's burger was deemed to be cooked a perfect medium rare and scored a "5".
With only 2 exceptions, TOPPINGS scored a 4 or 5 from all Officers and were deemed to be substantial.
The poorest score came in BUN QUALITY, with all Officers scoring this a 2 or 3. Clearly the area where immediate improvement could be made as a composite score of 2.44 comes in at below average.
GREASE again appeared to be split between the two booths.
LORD ECKSTEIN'S FACTOR is where the Charcoal Pit excelled with 4 or 5 across the board. All Officers agreed that the "old school" feel was fantastic. Handmade milkshakes and sides including fries and onion rings were sampled with excellent results all around.
The Charcoal Pit provides an outstanding place for a first burgering and all Officers felt their taste buds had been appropriately calibrated for future burgerings. Promotions to 2nd Lieutenant were handed out to all Officer Cadets (with one exception where an Officer Cadet was appointed Batman to the Major and immediately assigned the task of boot polishing).
