  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • Barbecue Sauce I used the Homemade Peach Bourbon Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon spicy chili powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 thick slices pepper jack cheese
  • 2 toasted buns
  • Whatever toppings you prefer


  • Heat your grill to 250 degrees.
  • To a mixing bowl, add ground chuck, 2 tablespoons barbecue sauce, chili powder, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Hand mix, but do not overmix or the burger can become mealy. Form it into 2 8-ounce patties, ¾ inch thick each.
  • Set the burgers onto the cooler part of the grill and shut the lid. Cook for 10 minutes, then flip and cook another 5.
  • Bring the burgers over to the hot side and sear each side a couple minutes each.
  • Top with cheese and shut the lid, until the cheese melts.
  • Serve onto toasted buns with extra barbecue sauce. Top with your favorite toppings! I added some beer battered jalapeno peppers. That’s it!
  • Enjoy!
