It took Kohlheim three weeks of testing various combinations to come up with the right mix of meats, an 80/20 mixture of certified Angus beef that recently won a local reader’s choice best burger award. The five-star patty at Shore Fire Grille is completely different, composed of tenderloin, beef brisket and short ribs, ground by a butcher to Kohlheim’s demanding specifications.
Burgers at Shore Fire Grille are not only made from beef. Salmon patties are made from fresh salmon and fresh dill, crab cakes are homemade and tuna caught right off of Long Beach Island is used in another burger. Scallops, shrimp and Mahi-mahi are all possible choices. Wings also are a huge seller and Kohlheim makes them a couple of different ways.
Kohlheim says that any restaurant can do anything, but not always well. The techniques he does best are listed on his website and include: Grilled food, BBQ, pig roasts, burgers, salads, chili, jalapenos, weddings and parties, take-out food, delivery and more.
