My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 2 lbs ground beef
- 3/4 cup caesar-flavor croutons (herb and garlic, crushed)
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons bacon bits
- 2 tablespoons deli prepared hot mustard
- 2 tablespoons minced garlic
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tablespoon onion powder
- 3 tablespoons cattleman's classic barbecue sauce
- 1 tablespoon hy's seasoning salt
- 1/4 cup maple syrup
- 1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese
- mesquite wood chips, soaked
- 1Assemble ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix using a fork, until this is very well combined.
- 2Form into patties approximately 3.5" diameter, 3/4" thick, squaring the edges so that they are not overcooked.
- 3Set the patties in the fridge for one hour.
- 4Heat BBQ to high , then reduce heat on one side to minimum, the other to half capacity.
- 5Dump soaked mesquite chips on hot side of grill, allow them to come to a flame.
- 6Place burgers on the grill allowing a sear mark to develop, then rotate 90 degrees for a "thatched" appearance.
- 7Close grill hood, and allow burgers to slow cook --
- 8Flip the burgers and close the hood again.
- 9Use a meat thermomemter to prove "doneness" as rge smoke and the sugars in the ingredients will give colouring that will confuse you otherwise-aim for about 175 degrees --
- 10Served with sliced refridgerator dill pickles, garden fresh tomato slices, sliced white onion, on a toasted sourdough bun.
