How to Build The Very Best Burger Bar

Your next outdoor BBQ could be epic. How? Create your own Burger Bar! 🍔 

Great for feeding a crowd or just a fun, interactive way to have your guests be part of creating the meal. P.S.–  kids LOVE making their own anything! 

What does The Very Best Burger Bar  include? The short answer: whatever you want. But we’re here to give you a few expert ideas from four generations of meat lovers

#1 The Very Best Burgers 

You can’t go wrong with any of the Schweid & Son options. Try our Butchers Blend, an award-winning formula that gives this Burger a great steak flavor. Our Katana Blend is another great choice, a highly marbled Wagyu beef with no added hormones or antibiotics. Pro tip: use a food thermometer to ensure the internal temperature of your Burgers reach a safe minimum of 160 degrees Fahrenheit, and keep them warm in a preheated oven at 200 until you’re ready to serve them.

 #2 Toppings Galore!

To cheese, or not to cheese. It’s up to you. We recommend classic American, a little Provolone or Swiss, or even Bleu cheese. There’s no limit to topping choices. Perhaps a few of these?

  • Lettuce
  • Onion
  • Tomato 
  • Bacon
  • Avocado
  • Pickles 

P.S. put all of your toppings in containers (or one large platter) and sit them on a bed of ice to keep them cool until you’re ready to plate your masterpiece. 

#3 The Ultimate Sides

There’s no wrong answer here when it comes to what to offer as a complement to the Burger itself. Fries, tots, salads or even baked potatoes. Personally we love the idea of adding a whole baked potato bar too while you’re at it! . 

#4 Buns

What’s your bread pleasure? Brioche, sesame seed, or sourdough are great options – just to name a few. Or make it a sampling size with slider buns for multiple combinations from the Bar. 

#5 Condiments

The more the merrier. Put out bottles or easy to scoop bowls of all of these.

  • Ketchup
  • Mayo
  • Mustard (yellow, Dijon, & honey mustard)
  • BBQ sauce
  • Homemade Burger sauce

#6 The Final Build

All that’s left to do is let people build their own burger, their way. Let your guests stretch their culinary arms and build some creative Burgers!
