How to make it

  • Make the rub by placing all the ingredients in a jar and shaking. You will not use all of this to make the burgers, so save whatever you don't use to rub on steaks or chicken.
  • Make the BBQ Sauce: Saute the garlic in the oil about 30 seconds, then add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until reduced to 1 1/3 cups, stirring occasionally; about 15 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  • Burgers: Cook the bacon in a skillet until crisp. Place on paper towels to drain. Break in half. Form the hamburger into patties. Using your thumb make a slight indentation in the middle of each burger (this helps ensure a flat burger).
  • Prepare the grill to medium-high heat. Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of the rub onto each of the burgers, place rub side down onto the grill and grill about 4 minutes; turn and cook about 2 minutes. Place the bacon slices on each burger (2 halves) and then top with the cheese, cover and cook until the cheese is melted. Toast the buns on the grill if desired, then top with the burger. Dress your burger with your desired condiments, then top with a dollop of Texas BBQ sauce. Close the bun and serve.
  • LindySez: You can also grill the onions, if desired.

    I'm only recently discovering the addition of coffee to marinades, rubs, etc. This sounds perfectly delicious! Thanks!
