Ooh, burgers. Who doesn’t love them, right?
Well, here’s another delicious burger recipe for all of you burger fans out there, and it’s something you can do with a help of a beer can. It turns out beer is not just best for drinking with a burger, but also help in making this savory recipe that you will surely want to try.
BBQ Pit Boys, a YouTube channel, shares one mouth-watering way of making grilled burgers and we are digging it! And it also includes not only beef but bacon, veggies, and a lot of cheesy goodness. Just thinking about it makes my mouth water!
If anybody can take the humble burger and upsize it country-style, it’s these pitmasters and their authority with meat and fire.
The recipe is called “Beer Can Bacon Burgers” and yup, you need an unopened beer can to do it.
In the video, the BBQ Pit Boys cook starts with taking out about 4 to 5 pounds of ground chuck. The meat fat ratio should be around 80/20 for this recipe to work.
He turns them into 3 quarter-pound meatballs and sets them aside. The next thing you want to do is find an unopened can of beer. Don’t drink it just yet! You want it heavy because you are going to use it as a mold.
After wrapping the ground chuck around the beer can, this is now the time where you get all those bacon and wrap them around the ground meat. Now, it’s getting interesting!
After wrapping the meat with bacon, carefully pull the beer can up so you can fill the void it left with vegetables and savory filling. Remember that you don’t need oil or water to ease the can out. It should be easy because of the can’s smooth surface.
Next up, the filling.
It can actually be anything you’d like in the burger but for this recipe, the BBQ Pit Boys added grilled mushrooms, onions, beef hash, bell peppers, tomatoes, and canned chili. If you think this is already as delicious as it can get, then you are wrong. It actually gets even better!
Of course, this dish won’t be complete without cheese! After filling up the burger, sprinkle some cheese on top of it. Drizzle it with BBQ sauce and voila, you are now ready to grill.
Put the yummy creations on top of a hot grill and wait for about an hour. Are you getting excited now?
And finally, the wait is over.
Lift the grill cover and be welcomed by this amazing smell of grilled meat, veggies and cheese all rolled into one. Can you imagine the happiness you’ll feel after opening the grill to find this treasure of a recipe? Wow! And if you are curious how it looks like from the inside, the BBQ Pit Boys also made sure you’ll see how incredible and mouth-watering it looks!
Sweet heavens, that’s one glorious burger! It is juicy, savory, and will definitely give you the mouth-watering burger goodness you are craving. You probably can’t wait to try this one out. It is very easy to do, right?
