The Best Burger EVER!

This is, hands down, the best burger we’ve ever made. We messed around with a few different ingredients here and there, but nothing compares to this recipe when grilled on your pellet grill. Even though your grill will be set at a higher temp, you’ll still get nice hints of wood flavor in each bite. What’s more, all the ingredients we use will balance extremely well with the wood flavors. My favorite part is the beautiful sear you get when following this recipe!


  • 2 pounds of 80/20 ground beef
  • 2 tbsp kosher salt
  • 2 tbsp cracked black pepper
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 12 cooked slices of your homemade bacon from our recipe
  • Six slices of sharp cheddar cheese
  • Your favorite condiments
  • A nice dense burger bun


  • Start by pulling out your beef from the fridge and letting it get to room temperature
  • Preheat your pellet grill to 400F
  • Season your beef with the salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder
  • Add in the worcestershire sauce to the mixture and form patties
    • We form around six patties
  • When your pellet grill is at temp, place your patties directly on the grill
  • Let them cook for about ten minutes for each side
  • Add a slice of sharp cheddar cheese per burger when your IT is near your desired doneness
    • We pull when the IT is 140
      • You may pull whenever you like
  • Let the patties rest for five minutes then assemble your burger – DO NOT forget to top them with your homemade bacon!

MITCH TIP: If you want to elevate the flavor and texture to another level, toast the bun prior to building the burger!
