Pinki Goolsby was laid off in 2010 from her job as a purchasing agent, and worried that, at 63, her age would prevent her from ever being employed again. Her son Shane Keinz, 41, a former business owner and talented chef, was newly relocated in Florida, and looking for work. Her other son, Matt Holt, 35, is an MBA who was selling health insurance but wasn’t thrilled with the corporate world; earlier in his career he had been the co-owner of a restaurant in West Palm Beach. All three knew that Shane’s culinary skills — and his conviction that stuffed burgers were the next big foodie thing — could somehow be the solution to their collective employment issues… Click Here to Read Full Article

Bradenton, Florida, (February 11, 2013) — Full Belly Meats, a local producer of gourmet stuffed burgers, has opened a restaurant in Bradenton under the name of Full Belly Stuffed Burgers. The family-run business has specialized in providing unique artisan-style hamburgers that were originally only available at local events or for purchase by customers for cooking at home. “Our customer base has grown dramatically,” said Matt Holt, owner. “It made sense to open a restaurant where patrons can enjoy our gourmet burgers any time they want.”
Full Belly Stuffed Burgers has also teamed up with another popular local food vendor, O’Macalicious, to offer their famous mac n’ cheese recipes at the restaurant. In addition to gourmet burgers such as the Cheddar Bacon Burger, the Matty Matt (stuffed with maple-cured bacon and natural peanut butter), the Bleu Cheese and Bacon Burger and the Jalapeno Popper Burger, customers can enjoy unique side dishes like O’Shrooms Mac, Bacon and Bleu Cheese Mac and “The Works” (mac n’ cheese, tater tots, bleu cheese and bacon).
Each Full Belly Stuffed Burger served at the restaurant starts with a large 100% Black Angus beef patty. Then the burgers are stuffed with ingredients like sun dried tomatoes, bacon, peppers and various types of cheeses. There are currently five varieties of stuffed burgers and four unstuffed burgers to choose from, including a seasoned turkey burger. Other menu items include salads, soups and “Belly Teasers” such as Scotch eggs, sweet potato tots, fried green tomatoes and wings. The restaurant also serves a variety of soft drinks, wine and over 20 types of beer
Full Belly Stuffed Burgers is open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner. The restaurant is located at 8742 State Road 70, just east of I-75.

Summer is the time for outdoor grilling. And there’s no better time to grill up some delicious Full Belly burgers for hungry friends and family. So we’ve put together a grilling checklist to ensure your outdoor cookout runs smoothly.
Obviously gourmet stuffed burgers from Full Belly Meats are always a crowd pleaser. But don’t forget great tasting side dishes like grilled vegetables, corn on the cob, potato salad, baked beans and desserts like watermelon or ice cream.
There are three choices here: electric, gas (propane) or charcoal. Choose one that best fits your needs, not the first one you see on sale. An electric grill may be easier and cleaner to use, but it can’t match the flavor of a gas or charcoal grill. A gas grill is generally easier to use than charcoal, but charcoal is usually easier to use on the go, like for camping trips. Charcoal will also produce a hotter fire.
You’ll need a propane canister if you have a gas grill. We’ve all been to cookouts where the poor host runs out of propane before the first burger is cooked. Don’t let that happen to you! If you have a charcoal grill, make sure you have briquettes, a chimney starter (forget the lighter fluid) and a few sheets of newspaper.
INSTANT READ THERMOMETER
This helps to cook your Full Belly burgers to perfection.
STAINLESS STEEL LONG-HANDLED TONGS
Shorter tongs increase chances of burning your hands. We always use tongs rather than forks because you do not want to pierce the meat and lose the meats natural juices.
Invest in a good stiff brush with a long handle for easier clean-ups. Before cooking any food on the grill, let it heat up for about 5 minutes (preferably with the lid closed). Any food residue from the last cookout will fall right off with only a little pressure from the brush.
Grease flare-ups can happen when you least expect it. Make sure you play it safe and always have an extinguisher close by when you’re grilling.
A summer cookout isn’t complete without a variety of cold drinks. If you don’t have a cooler, a trash can (or other container) filled with ice works well too.
Set up bins for plastics, paper and aluminum cans to help keep waste out of the landfills.
Handy to have for spills, quick clean-ups and serves as extra napkins for your guests.
Wrap your vegetables in foil before placing on the grill so they won’t fall through the grate.
PAPER PLATES & PLASTIC CUTLERY
You don’t want to spend hours cleaning up. Disposable supplies allow guests to throw away after they’re finished.
Whether you find yourself grilling on the beach, in the woods or just in your own back yard, nothing brings friends and family together like a well-planned cookout. So keep this checklist handy and get grillin’ – and don’t forget your burgers!
