    Hey all,

    Was a perfect day yesterday to clean the pool while enjoying the sweet smells of meat on the smoker.

    The wife was in the mood for something easy to finish off the weekend so this was a perfect time to try out some Beer Can Burgers that I've been wanting to test out.

    These were very easy to prepare and similar to stuffed burgers or fatties, the options are endless...

    I like to keep things simple, so for these I was going with some sauteed mushrooms, onions, and green peppers....I also cut up some thin cut roast beef to add in;

     

    I after shaping and wrapping the burger up with bacon, I added a couple of chunks of hard cheddar and Mozzarella, and finally sprinkled a little KEG spices;

     

    Tossed these on the BGE with some Pecan and Mesquite at 235;


    After about an hour and 45 minutes, I tossed on some chopped bacon and a little shredded cheese...took them off 15 minutes later;

      
     

    The Verdict...WOW!!! These blew my mind...I used some fresh pretzel buns (picture not shown cause I was too excited at this point on how they turned out). Only negative was that they were huge...no issue for me...but the kids had a rough time. LOL

    These are for sure gonna happen again!

    Cheers.

    Very Nice smoke! When I have fat burgers like that after they cook I will slice them in half for the kids. Yes you'd need to add cheese to yours for one of the halves but it works!

    Points for creativity!

    Thanks! But might try out a quick grill the next time. Because it was a two low temp smoke the meat came out kinda tough. I much prefer my burgers juicy. But in the end I wanted them to have a nice smoky flavour.

    You think I could have the best of both worlds with a quick grill?
    LOL Thanks Duke!
    Thanks for the point Monkey!

    No worries Paul, your kind words are good enough! Cheers.
    LOL, yeah you're probably right. But I am sure a sliced open close-up shot of your stuffed burgers would look mighty fine too! Cheers.
    They were quite tasty...could not eat more than one and a half and boy was I ever stuffed after! Thanks for stopping by!
