Barbecued Burgers Recipe

I can't take all the credit for these winning burgers. My husband's uncle passed down the special barbecue sauce recipe. We love it on everything...it was only natural to try it on, and in, burgers. —Rhoda Troyer, Glenford, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Grill: 15 min. YIELD:6 servings

"I came across this recipe and decided I just had to try it. I bought the ingredients today and rushed home to start making this delicious looking dish. The burgers turned out to be excellent but the sauce was way, way, way too sweet! I checked and rechecked to make sure I didn't mess up on the measuring but I didn't. I really don't see how anyone can stand the sauce as it is made. Maple syrup couldn't have been any worse. Needless to say, I will make the patties as described but that sauce is on the garbage list!"

"The is, by far, the best recipe I've ever had for any burger...ever!! The filling is so simple, but so amazingly good! I did change up the sauce a bit though; I used a 12 oz bottle chili sauce for the 1 cup ketchup and then I used Kikomann's Garlic and Green Onion teryaki sauce instead of the molasses. I don't think I'll ever eat another burger recipe again!"

"This is my husband's absolute favorite BBQ sauce recipe! I love that the sauce tastes fabulous without the use of onions & garlic, because several people in our family have food allergies. I can grill a few plain burgers for them and they can still enjoy the BBQ sauce with it. Thanks for the great recipe!"

"The sauce is wonderful. I made the burgers and the sauce. I then stuffed the burgers with shredded swiss cheese and bacon bits before grilling. Additionally I grilled portabella mushroom caps and basted them with the sauce as well. I chopped the stems fine and added them to the beef mixture. I then served the burgers on top of the mushrooms, no need for a bun."
