I know you've heard about the latest BBQ grilling craze - Beer Can Burgers, yes? Well today I'm sharing our take. We made ours mushroom, onion and swiss Bacon Wrapped Beer Can Burgers. But the possibilities are endless, a MUST try!
Ronni Keller:
Recipe type: BBQ Grilling Hamburgers
Serves: 4
  • 2 lbs Ground Beef (we used 80/20)
  • 2 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
  • Salt and Pepper To Taste
  • Seasoning Salt (or favorite rub or seasoning)
  • 6 slices Bacon (crisp up 2 and chop)
  • 8 Cubes Chunk Swiss Cheese (about 1 inch in size)
  • ½ Onion (diced)
  • 8-10 Mushrooms (sliced)
  • 4 Hamburger Buns and Favorite Condiments
  1. In a large bowl, mix and season meat thoroughly. Form into four round balls.
  2. Press a full can of COLD beer into the center of each ball. Form and fold the meat into an even cup shape around the can. (cold cans slip out easier and no meat will stick) Wrap bacon around each 'cup' of burger.
  3. Sauté mushrooms and onions in a bit of oil.
  4. Pop 1 cube of cheese in the bottom of each burger, then evenly distribute veggies. Cover with another cube of cheese. Sprinkle crisped up chopped bacon over the top of each burger.
  5. Now, fire up that grill! We're cooking the beer can burgers using low, indirect heat. Put the burgers on the grill and close the lid. And quit lifting it up every 10 minutes!. You're loosing heat baby. After an hour, check to make sure they are done. The bacon should be fully cooked and all the cheese melted. (meat thermometer should register *165)
  6. Remove from grill. Serve on buns with favorite condiments. I used some spicy-kick-you-in-the-butt BBQ sauce!
