What do you remember about Lumburgers?  They were more like sloppy joes,

I tried a recipe today, but the taste did not come back to me because I 
chose the wrong cheese to try. What cheese do you think Lum’s used?
I remember those lumburgers just melted in your mouth!!

 Hi Larry,

Well, I know next to nothing about Lumburgers.  We had a Lum's on Highway 90 in Biloxi/Gulfport in the 1970s, but the only thing I recall eating there was the fried clams basket.

There is a lot of discussion about Lumburgers on various message boards around the web, but no one has a recipe.  Lumburgers are mundanely described in those posts as "loose meat hamburgers with a bit of tomato based sauce.

However, I found a photo of an actual Lum's menu with a much better description here: Lum's Menu

To wit: "chopped sirloin in our own B-B-Q sauce on an egg bun."

Chopped sirloin and an egg bun are not difficult to find, but Lum's own BBQ sauce recipe is like Captain Kidd's treasure. No success there.
