Prepare a medium-hot fire in a charcoal grill with a cover, or pre-heat a gas grill to medium-high. To make the FEMA spread, combine the sea salt, white pepper, green chiles, avocado, in a blender, and puree until well blended. Transfer contents to bowl; fold in mustard and mayonaise. cover with clear plastic wrap, and refrigerate until needed. To prepare the GRIS GRIS caramelized onions, warm the olive oil in a 16 inch fire-proof skillet on the grill. Add the onion slices;saute' about 18-20 minutes until transluscent, making sure to frequently stir as to not scorch the onions. Add the butter and brown sugar, continuing to cook for about 6-7 minutes until the onions are a light brown color and most of the liquid has evaporated. Transfer the onions to a stainless steel bowl and cover with aluminum foil, shiny side down, to retain the heat. Put off to the side. To prepare the Katrina patties, combine the ground chuck, sirloin, beaten egg,Tony Cacherie's, white pepper, Worcestishire sauce, minced onion, green chiles, brown sugar, colby cheese, in a large mixing bowl handling the meat as little as possible to avoid compacting it. Divide the mixture into six equal portions and form six equal patties to fit the size of the Kaiser roll. Place a sheet of wax paper between each patty and place on a plate; refrigerate until time to grill. When the grill is ready, brush the grill with vegetable oil. Place the patties on the grill, cover, and cook for 6-8 minutes on each side for medium, or own preference, turning once. During the last minutes of grilling, place Kaiser Roll sliced halves, cut-side down on the grill to lightly toast. Remove the patties to a decorative pewter tray; place the Kaiser rolls in a large bread basket of choice. To assemble the N'AWLINS KNOCK YOUR SOCKS OFF POST KATRINA BURGER, spread FEMA spread on both sides of the Kaiser roll, place a KATRINA patty on one half of the roll, top with GRIS GRIS caramelized onions, and the other half of the Kaiser roll. Pair it with a Sutter Home Cabernet or Pinot Noir, and you have one GREAT Backyard BBQ !!
