Smoked Burger

I recently got a smoker grill. Now that I am in Florida, I can grill all year round. With this smoker grill, I make myself a Smoked Burger on it all the time. How do you smoke a burger you may be asking? It is actually simple!

  • Prepare your smoker
  •  225°F for about 60-90 minutes depending on how you like your burger.

What if you do not have a smoker for your grill? Adding wood chips to a chargrill burning grill will help add that smokey flavor to a burger!




Ranch Burger

This year, I wanted to play with a Ranch Burger. I personally like ranch dressing, it is good on a beef burger recipe. However, I wanted the ranch flavor to be inside the meat.

So adding a little of the dry ranch dressing to the beef burger recipe really added that ranch flavor I wanted. This Ranch Burger is a perfect addition to my collection of tasty burgers recipes!




Bourbon Burger

If this is a Ranch Burger, then how is it a  Bourbon Burger? That is easy to answer it is because of the bourbon glaze recipe I brushed on the homemade burger as it was smoking on my grill! Bourbon and ranch make a great combo in a beef burger recipe!




Beef Burger Recipe

Even though this beef burger recipe has both ranch and bourbon in it, It still needed that final touches. So to assemble this tasty burger, I used Cabot cheddar cheese, french fried onions, and bacon jam. I admit I got my inspiration from some Smokehouse burgers I have seen!
