Chipotle Bacon Cheese Burgers

Ingredients

Preparation

1
Cook the bacon until it is just done, still limp and juicy. Then cut it up into bite size pieces. I used kitchen shears for this first. It is easier than using a knife. Put everything in a large bowl and mix well. Don’t worry if the meat is on the dry side, the bacon will take care of that. Put it covered into the refrigerator for a few hours or overnight to let everything get happy. We make 5 patties out of 2 lbs of meat. Yes, they are VERY BIG…
2
Preparing Grill: High Direct Heat
3
Preheat your grill to High heat (400-450). Add your wet hickory chips to the fire and oil the grill. A cooking spray is easiest for this.
4
Note: you can add your hickory directly to the grill or you can use foil smoke packets.(Two handfuls wet chips and one dry, fold foil into a packet, poke holes in it with a fork and you’re good to go.)
5
Note: I use a spray bottle when cooking on the grill filled with a Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke mix that keeps things moist and adds tons of flavors. (Mix is 3 parts Worcestershire with 1 part liquid smoke)
6
Directions:
7
Place them on the grill and because they are so big they are going to cook a little longer.
8
About 10 to 15 minutes before you’re done brush them with a little Raspberry Chipotle BBQ sauce. (The recipe for the sauce is on our web site @ http://datenightdoins.com)
9
Then add the cheese, dab a little sauce on it and pull them when the cheese is melted.

There is an awesome Smoked Chipotle Bacon made from Mountain Products Smokehouse. You can buy it online! I saw a blurb about it in RR magazine!

About

This week I wanted to put a different twist on the bacon burger.
I can never keep the bacon in place on one of these things so I thought I would put it in the burger.
And what can be better than bacon with chipotle and cheese … (We just used the beef to hold it together.)

The bacon flavor just jumped out at you followed with the smoky flavor of the chipotle; add beef and cheese and you’ve got a nice juicy burger. This one is a real winner.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to your taste. Take it and run with it….

Enjoy,
