The Classic American Cheeseburger
Treat yourself to the classic taste of an American cheeseburger with Chef Tom's recipe. Let him show you how to master the craft of grinding brisket point meat into the perfect browned patty with melty American cheese.
Preheat your Yoder Smokers YS640 pellet grill 450°F set up for direct grilling with GrillGrates.
Cube and grind the meat on a 10 mm die. Grind the meat a second time for a finer texture. Mix in the egg, quickly. Divide the meat into 8 patties. Season the patties on both side with R Butts R Smokin' R Beef Rub.
- Grill the burgers on both sides to achieve nice grill marks. When the internal temperature reaches 150°F, place a slice of cheese on the burger and cook just a minute or two longer, until the cheese is melted.
- Grill the tomato slices, just until you get some nice grill marks on them. Grill the buns to crisp the surface.
Mix the Big Ricks Chipotle Ketchup, mayonnaise and pickle juice well.
- Build your burgers. Start with the bottom bun, special sauce, lettuce, burger patty, red onions and pickle and then the top bun. Enjoy!
