I needed to create a burger to enter in a contest for the foodie groups July 2022 calendar pic. Here it is the “Smokehouse Better than just Bacon Cheeseburger”. An 11 oz 80/20 Black Angus sirloin burger ,smoked cheddar, 1/4” succulent smoked pork belly strips , smoked Gouda, bacon wrapped Vidalia onion slice and fried jalapeños. Threw in a little peppery arugula and a tasty habanero bbq aioli. Belly was a small piece of Berkshire belly rubbed with my keto sweet heat rub. Burgers were seasoned with a store bought rub I really like. All smoked in the Lang today with cherry wood. The belly was luscious tender at 205F The burgers were basically one giant smoke ring lol red on the outside and into the burger a good quarter inch

Thanks jcam222 I got the truck warming up and will head it East, what's the address?
Wait, this is the heat of summer, my diesel don't need and warming up! Oh silly me!
 
That is something else wow, nice work. The pictures are like out of a food magazine.

Does using keto rub cancel the carbs? Never even knew rubs had carbs, Haha love it.

Have to do the Guy Fieri “hunch” to get a bite, but it’d be worth it!
Over the top
Bacon wrapped anything is good.
I recently had a bacon added Reubon sandwich.
Wholy Carp! NE Ohio is not too far for me to drive!

Yea man many rubs are packed with some form of sugar. I use sugar subs in all of mine. The keto heat is one Ive worked on for years now and love. Have a local keto store that is evaluating carrying it commercially.
jcam222 jcam222 Will the calendar be something anyone can purchase?

Jim I’m not sure on that. I’ll have to ask. Within the group it’s pretty much a bragging rights thing.

Looks awesome. Maybe they are just too mundane but I have always wondered why smoked burgers are not posted more often on here. So simple and quick, and even bad quick pics like mine look delicious IMO

I agree that smoked burgers are amazing. I throw a tray in for lunch almost every time I run a longer smoke. Get that nice red color like yours and smokey flavor.
 
Wow Jeff...that burger is a work of art my friend. Absolutely stunning!! Best of luck with the voting and please keep us posted on the results.
