I found this one in the Chicago Tribune's 'Good Eating' section. Haven't tried it yet, just posting for safekeeping. Bergy will probably get to this one before I do :)

Simply fabulous! I just finished the leftover burger for lunch. The flavor is so great and yet its so simple to make! I shredded some lettuce and minced some red onion and added that to the bbq sauce mix before topping the burgers. YUM! Thanks for a great recipe!
