To make the grilled onions, melt the clarified butter on the YS Cast Iron Skillet. Add the sliced onions. Season with a few shakes of Noble Saltworks Hickory Smoked Finishing Salt. Toss and cook until softened and slightly caramelized. Transfer from the grill to an 8” Lodge Cast Iron Skillet. Add the Holmes Made Smoky Cowboy Mustard to the onions and let cook down on the right side of the grill for about 5 minutes. Remove from the grill.

Cook the bacon on the griddle to desired doneness. Remove and reserve.

Form the ground brisket into 8 equal (1/4 lb) patties.

Place the patties on the griddle and smash to the width of your brioche buns. Season the side facing up with the R Butts R Smokin’ R Beef Rub.

Place two half slices of bacon on top of each patty, as well. Continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 150º. Remove rom the grill.

Spread the bottom of each toasted brioche bun with Cowboy Sauce. Add the shredded lettuce to the bottom bun. Place two bacon, cheese and brisket patties on each bum. Top the the Smoky Cowboy Mustard Caramelized Onions, and the top bun.

    Chef Tom, these look great, will be trying. Thanks. I suggest using parchment paper on top of the burgers as you press on them. I use this technique when pressing to make my very thin, quickly grilled burgers. Keeps the burgers from lifting off the grill with the press. Keep up the good work!
