Pretty tasty eh?
Serves: 6 - 8
Prep time: 15 minutes
Direct Heat: 525F - 550F
Don't overwork the meat as this toughens it and it will be anything but gourmet.
Place 1 tablespoon of this garlic butter recipe on the hamburger patty.
Take another 1/4 cup meat mixture and form a smaller patty.
Place this over the first one and the butter so the butter is now inside the hamburger.
Gently pinch the edges to secure the top to the bottom and to keep the butter inside.
If necessary gently reshape the entire hamburger into a uniform shape.
Make a slight indentation in the top of each burger in the center with your thumb - this counteracts the natural tendancy of them to puff up while cooking.
Rub a little olive oil on each side of the peameal slices.
When the grill reaches temperature place the slices of peameal bacon on the grates and close the lid.
Cook each side about 4 minutes.
When cooked, remove the bacon from the grill, cover and set aside.
When the grill reaches this temperature range place the hamburger patties on the grill and cook about 6 minutes a side.
When you flip the burger you should see nice grill marks.
After you've flipped the burger slather some Smoky Maple BBQ sauce recipe on each burger and top with cheddar cheese.
Insert the tip of an instant read thermometer into one of the thickest burgers.
When the temperature reads 155F remove the burgers from the grill.
They will increase a bit in temperature and should finish at a perfect medium.
Serve with the cooked peameal bacon and a variety of buns or croissants.
Suggested condiments include sliced dill pickles, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, and lot's of good cold Canadian Beer!
