Reviews for Barbecued Burgers
"Outstanding! Really, these are seriously good! Best burger I've ever made. I used 1 lb of 85% grass fed ground beef and followed recipe as written. I happen to love BBQ burgers, but have never seen my partner eat one, so I was skeptical she'd like it. Thankfully, she loved it and said it was the best burger she's ever had...and we eat a lot of burgers! She didn't add extra sauce, but I did.The sauce is great...if you like Sweet Baby Ray's, you'll love this. If you like your BBQ sauce with a little kick, add some hot sauce or cayenne. 1 lb of meat made 6, 3-1/2 oz patties, about 5" round and 5/8" thick. We cooked 2 on our griddle and froze the rest for another time. Next time, I'll grill up 4 patties so we can have double meat for a heartier meal. If you like thicker burgers, you might want to make 4 with 1 lb meat. This is most definitely a keeper!"
"This is by far my favorite hamburger ever. I love the bbq sauce as well and just make that sometimes."
"My husband made these for dinner tonight! They were great!"
"I thought the sauce needed a little kick, but other than that it was delicious."
"My son makes these at my request because they are awesome. The family raves over them too! It's a keeper!"
"Grilled these on a Big Green Egg. They came out perfect! The sauce was delicious and blended perfectly with the hamburgers. My two burgers didn't even make it to a bun because they looked and smelled so good. Highly recommend these."
"The sauce for these burgers was amazing! I made sure I saved some for future use. The sauce did make the burgers sweeter than we are used to so eating just one was enough. I will definitely be making these again!"
"Burgers are good. Sauce tastes like store bought...excellent!"
"Yummy & easy"
