Affinia Would Like To Teach You A Little Something About Burgers

Either business is slow, or some marketing executive ran away with himself. Or maybe Affinia is just really, really proud of their chefs. Either way, we're loving their newest food-centric promotion: a national BBQ hotline. Yes, you read that right.

Three Affinia hotels across the country (The Liaison Capitol Hill, C-House, and Affinia Shelburne) will help launch this interactive new feature which encourages people (not necessarily guests) to submit all their BBQ-related questions to this address, at which point your query will be forwarded to the appropriate hotel (DC handles all southern-inspired BBQ, while burger-specific queries go to NYC.) After 24-48 hours of agonizing suspense, you may then expect a reply. On Monday, we decided to test out the hotline for ourselves. Read on to see the response we got!

When it came time to devise a particular question, our mind was stuck on burgers. Home-cooked burgers, though tasty, can often be a little boring—not to mention too dry, not flavorful enough, burnt on one side. So we asked the grand Affinia masters how we could get more creative. Here was their response:

"Hello, 

Thank you for your question. There are a lot of things that can be added to spice up burger mix. Some include: 
Worchestershire sauce, Tabasco sauce, caramelized onions, chopped garlic. Any of these would be great additions to a burger!

Thank you!"

Well, not quite the illustrated guide we were hoping for, but a start nonetheless. Now excuse us while we head to the grocery store. The weekend is fast approaching, and we need to get in a few test batches!

Ready to give Affinia's national BBQ hotline a shot? Send an email to bbqbootcamp@artandsouldc.com, and don't forget to tell us about your experiences after!
