      Reviewing this for ZWT III. Since it's a recipe made for a group - we had a group and my review is based on an average rating per guest. We had 12. Some loved it - some really didn't like it at all - all based on taste preferences. For myself - when serving a group in a backyard bbq setting, I love recipes like this. Make ahead and let everyone make their own burgers up. The one thing I'd change on the recipe was the amounts listed for the Chipotle Aioli. You could very easily cut the amounts in half and still have way more than enough. I'll probably do again but with some changes.

      Man, what a busy burger! I decided to start early in the day with condiments and slicing of vegetables, and I'm glad I did, because it took me almost all day to finish. I loved the Aioli, but DH didn't. Bacon turned out perfectly, and I loved the maple flavor added. Guacamole was a nice touch as well. This takes some time, so it's not something I'd make often, but would definately wow guests! Great job!

      yes, definiatly a messy burger.. Obviously making a truely regional American burger is rather hard in whilst living the Netherlands,but I did my best to stick as close to the spirit of the recipe as possible. The result was fire-y and fresh at the same time, I used bottled japelenos for the heat and LOTS of cilantro/coriander and onions and garlic to balance it out. I used a little liquid smoke in the BBQ sauce and since I made seperate meals for fussy kids and DH who didn't fancy burgers when I had all the ingredients ready ...and the light was fading I rushed to get a photo, presentation isn't quite at it's best... sorry about that. Please see my rating system: 4 stars for a great burger .. one that is messy to eat but worth the effort. Thanks!
