How To Make A Backyard BBQ Burger

Obviously, we’re down to eat Burgers all year ’round, but let’s be honest here. The absolute best time of year to enjoy them is during the summer. Who doesn’t love to fire up the grill, crack a cold beverage of their choosing, and go to town on some good eats?

And boy, do we have some good eats for you this summer.

This week’s recipe comes from our friend Dan Greenough, the Executive Chef of Burtons Grill in Hingham, MA. Burtons Grill is our favorite type of restaurant for a few different reasons. Not only do they serve amazing food ranging from rib-sticking classics to vegetarian and gluten-free options, but they also have 11 locations across Massachusetts, Connecticut, New Hampshire, Virginia, and South Carolina. That means you could fuel an epic East Coast road trip almost entirely on Burtons Grill’s killer cuisine alone.

Of course, if you’re staying local this summer, don’t sweat it. You can still enjoy a solid Burtons-style Burger with this gem from Chef Dan.

  1. 1. Season the Burgers with 1/4 tsp bronze seasoning on each side and grill for 2 minutes, then rotate a 1/4 turn and grill for 2 additional minutes. When placing the Burgers on grill, also put the bacon on a sizzle plate on the shelf so it allows for the bacon to heat up and get crispy.
  2. 2. Flip the Burgers and grill to the desired temperature, then brush with BBQ sauce, rotating the Burgers so there is no charring.
  3. 3. Add 1 Tbsp BBQ sauce and 2 slices of cheese, and melt under salamander for 20-30 seconds. You should not be able to see 2 separate slices of cheese.
  4. 4. Build each Burger on metal spatula (Burger, cheese, cross the bacon, tomato, potato chips, coleslaw) and place on bottom bun. Squeeze 1 Tbsp BBQ sauce on the top bun.
  5. 5. Serve on a large dinner plate with top bun angled on the Burger and your choice of side(s).
  6. 6. Enjoy!
