Grilled Bacon Cheeseburgers


Thick slices of fried bacon piled high on a fresh ground chuck cheese burger that was seared and grilled over the coals is just about as good as it gets!



    • Fresh Roast Beef Chuck – 1 Pound – If you do not want to grind your own have the butcher or meat counter at your store grind it for you.
    • Thick Sliced Bacon – ½ lb
    • Grated Cheddar Cheese – or your favorite cheese
    • Iron Skillet
    • Hamburger Buns
    • Your favorite burger condiments


1. Grind the Chuck Roast – or have your butcher do this for you 2. Form the ground chuck into 3 or 4 patties – you want to make the patty firm and tight so it will not fall apart on the grill 3. Set up your grill for indirect heat (hot coals on one side of the grill and no coals on the other side of the grill) ..... You’re looking for medium hot coals


4. Place Skillet directly over the coals and add the bacon to the pan 5. You do not want to burn the bacon or get it crispy, so after a few minutes move the skillet to the side of the grill with no coals. 6. Place the Ground Chuck patties on the grill directly over the hot coals to sear the burger – about 2 minutes per side – recover grill with lid while searing 7. Remove the bacon when done cooking and set to the side 8. After searing, move the burgers to the side of the grill with no coals to finish cooking 9. When the burgers are almost cooked to the doneness you prefer, add grated cheese to the top of the burgers, place the lid back on the grill and allow the cheese to melt. 10. When cheese is melted remove the burgers from the grill


11. Place a burger on a bun 12. Pile a bunch of bacon on top of the burger 13. Add your favorite condiments and place the top of the burger on your masterpiece


14. Serve and Enjoy!
