A family fave, these Texas sized burgers are made like a meat loaf, smoked then cut up into big burgers and served on Texas toast. This combo of ingredients works well to create a slightly sweet, smoky BBQ flavor profile. Use ground Beef or Turkey.
Spread the ground meat Beef or Turkey - 1/2 lb per burger) out into about a 1" thick loaf on a cookie sheets). Season the meat how you like and/or sprinkle on some rub. Spread on some BBQ sauce we used homemade add a layer of Muenster or Monty Jack cheese, thin sliced onion strips, roasted red pepper, thick cut bacon strips cut in half) and sprinkle on some parsley flakes or a little more rub. Hot smoke at 325°-350° for about an hour or until the burgers are medium well to well done 155°-165°) and the bacon is starting to crisp. Don't overcook; they'll dry out!
