Sometimes you just need a burger - and sometimes you just need a Barbecue Bacon Cheeseburger. 'Nuff said! Bacon infused burger – not topped, not crumbled. INFUSED. As in — in the meat. Aside from a little salt and pepper – there’s not much more to this.

Directions

Step 1
Place the Thick-Cut Bacon (2 slices) in the freezer for about 20 minutes or until very firm.
Step 2
Transfer the bacon to a mini prep food processor and pulse until the bacon is very fine (freezing makes it easier to achieve the fine texture).
Step 3
Place the Ground Chuck (1.3 lb) into a bowl and add the bacon, Kosher Salt (1/2 tsp) , Ground Black Pepper (1/2 tsp) and Water (2 Tbsp) . Fold the bacon and seasonings into the beef to blend evenly - but try not to overwork the meat.
Step 4
Form the beef into four 4" patties about 1/3-1/2" thick. Use your thumb or the back of a spoon to form a depression in the center of each patty.
Step 5
Heat the grill to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
Step 6
While the grill is heating, slice the Hamburger Buns (4) in half and assemble the rest of the toppings.
Step 7
Combine the Monterey Jack Cheese (1/2 cup) and Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese (3/4 cup) and transfer to a small bowl.
Step 8
Grill the buns on the cut side for about 1 to 2 minutes until lightly browned and set aside.
Step 9
Place the burgers on the grill and cook 3 to 4 minutes on each side for medium-rare to medium. During the last minute of cooking, sprinkle on about 1/4 cup of cheese for each burger.
Step 10
Transfer burgers to a baking sheet or cutting board.
Step 11
Dress your burgers using Lettuce (to taste) , Tomato (1) , Red Onion (1/2) , Jalapeño Pepper (1) , and Barbecue Sauce (1/3 cup) . Serve with Small Dill Pickles (to taste) .
