Ingredients

Ingredients - Ground beef, salt, pepper, bacon, cheese, buns, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions, pickle, Jack Daniels Whiskey, brown sugar, soy sauce, Dijon Mustard, Worcestershire Sauce, garlic, smoked paprika
  • Ground Beef – I would use 80/20 fat content for the ground beef.

  • Slice Cheese – Choose your favorite cheese. Provolone cheese or Sharp Cheddar Cheese are great options.
  • Hamburger Buns, toasted – Any type of bun will work. I even like my burger with no bun.

  • Step 2 – Preheat the grill over medium-high heat.
  • Step 3 – Divide the ground beef into 4 equal portions and shape them into patties. Make a slight indentation in the center of each patty to prevent it from puffing up during cooking. Season both sides of the patties with salt and black pepper.

  • Step 5 – During the last minute of cooking, brush the top of each patty generously with the Jack Daniel’s glaze. Then place a slice of cheddar cheese on top. Close the grill lid to allow the cheese to melt.
