In today's episode Chris 'Zeke' Hand and Ryk 'E Coli' Edelstein drive to what seems the end of the earth, but is in fact Vaudreuil, so that they can visit and eat at the very first Five Guys restaurant in Quebec. Why Five Guys? Why Vaudreuil?

Five Guys in Vaudreuil

But before we get into the complete Five Guys experience, and answer questions like those, we need to back up slightly - actually a lot. Five Guys, in Quebec (and eastern Ontario) is run by Wayne Sellers and Caleb Koeppel. They met playing hockey, but not where you think. And then an introduction to Ryk 'E Coli' Edelstein is de rigueur. (If you are interested; e coli is a gram negative rod-shaped bacterium that is commonly found in the lower intestine of warm-blooded organisms. Most E. coli strains are harmless, they are part of the normal flora of the gut, and can benefit their hosts by producing vitamin K2, and by preventing the establishment of pathogenic bacteria within the intestine.)

Here at the Montreal Burger Report we start with a checklist. A checklist of things to pay attention to, a checklist of things to concentrate on, and a checklist to focus us on the task at hand - eating hamburgers and cheeseburgers. In this episode we go over the items on the checklist.
