Happy Sunday Everyone!
Had some friends over for the game today, and decided what better way to watch football than with some beers and beer-can burgers! I made 2 different kinds of burgers:
Type 1 - Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Burger:
- Aged Cheddar
- Peppadew Cheese
- Pan-seared steak tips
- Sauteed Peppers & Onions
Type 2 - Jalepeno Bacon Stuffed Burger:
- Pepper Jack Cheese
- Buffalo Wing Cheese (Yancy's Fancy Brand)
- Diced Jalepenos
So I cooked up the steak, bacon, and onions/peppers first. Made up 8 gigantic meat balls (prolly 3/4lb each) and molded them around the cans, bacon-wrapped of course. Then began stuffing them. I layered it from bottom to top Shredded Cheese, Fillers, Shredded Cheese, Fillers, 3 Blocks of Cheese.
I threw some salt and pepper on there, and put them in the smoker at about 300 degrees with Hickory wood pellets in the AMNPS. Here they are about an hour into it:
MAN was I hungry after opening the smoker and seeing that. About another hour later and these babies were done, and my god they were the best burgers I've ever had in my life. My only regret was using thick-cut bacon instead of regular cut. The bacon didn't crisp up enough. Everyone was raving about them nonetheless, and I even have a couple extra to heat up for tomorrow Here's the pics of the finished products:

Aaaaand last but not least, the cut shot! A lot of work went into preparing these, but it was sooo worth it!
