Grilled Brisket Burger
Say goodbye to plain old ground beef and impress your family and friends with a massive grilled brisket burger masterpiece dripping with flavor.
3 lbs beef brisket, ground
Traeger Beef Rub, to taste
12 slices of cooked bacon
1 medium red onion, sliced 1/4-inch thick
6 slices cheddar cheese
3 burger buns, halved
9 oz Traeger Sweet Heat BBQ Sauce
When ready to cook, start the Traeger according to grill instructions. Set the temperature to 375 degrees F and preheat, lid closed for 10-15 minutes.
Form meat into 6 patties and season with Traeger Beef Rub.
Place them directly on the grill grate and cook for 4 minutes, flip patties and cook for 2 more minutes.
Place the red onions on the grill next to the burger and cook for 8 minutes total, flipping halfway through.
Top burgers with cheese and cook until cheese is melted, about 1–2 minutes. Remove burgers from grill and keep warm.
If desired, toast burger buns face side down on the grill for 2 minutes.
Assemble as double burgers with the grilled onions, bacon, and Traeger Sweet & Heat BBQ sauce. Enjoy!
