Wearing Number forty, small forward for the Dallas Mavericks Harrison Barnes (@hbarnes) had his chance this week at making one of the competing burgers at American Airlines Center. Not shy on the court, having his best season ever averaging over 20 points per game, Barnes is having a good year in the kitchen as well.
Check out for a limited engagement the Harrison Barnes Burger which is a grilled third-pound burger, pepper jack-pickled jalapeno cheese spread, cajun spice aioli, lettuce and vine ripened tomatoes on a corn dusted brioche served with French fries.
Looking to sport your vote for the All Stars in New Orleans Barnes chose to bring along a Dixieland band to ring in his new burger. There were plenty of beads and hooplah, but the real test is where he will rank with fellow Mav’s burger creations.
The center court Big D Will Burger @
Point Guard Deron Williams debuted his burger last November to a rousing crowd clamoring for his grilled third-pound burger ripe with jalapeno cheddar brioche, smoked bacon, chopped red onion, shaved romaine, vine ripened tomato, Monterey jack cheese and chipotle mayo served with onion rings. Great burger and the fans ate them up.
The retired Just-In Time @
Justin Anderson made the Just-In-Time Burger which was a third-pound burger topped with applewood smoked bacon and deviled egg aioli, provolone cheese, vine ripened tomato and shredded lettuce on Old Bay butter Texas toast served with Sriracha cheese fries. This was high cuisine for a burger.
The The retired Dirkburger @
Similar to Nowitzki’s height, the Dirkburger was quite massive. The patty is a third of a pound of beef and is topped with jalapeno beer cheese, bacon onion marmalade, argula and mustard horseradish aioli. The bun was a Bavarian pretzel bun, a nod to Nowitzki’s German heritage.
The Barnesburger will be sold in concessions stands (106, 114 and 118) throughout the month of January for $12 (or $16 if paired with a Bud Light Mavs Team Can). Tweet your favorite to @dallasmavs.
