Pineapple Bacon Burgers

Reviewed: Jul. 16, 2012
It took me three attempts to get this foolproof, which is where I like my recipes to land. Original recipe calls for too much BBQ sauce (you can add more afterwards), and I caution, which sauce you elect to use can make or break this recipe. Some well known brands are too watery, so make sure you use a thick, better quality sauce. If in doubt, reduce the BBQ sauce on the stove before you use it, or make your own. Thick! Again, Canned Pineapple, is not just pineapple, I used the real fresh cut. Much better flavor and result. Ground Beef, well lean is nice, but then it doesn't hold togther well. I've been using organc grass feed groundbeef. BIG difference in outcome and taste. Apple Smoked or Hickory Smoked Bacon is the way to go!! This is one of the few recipes, where I would have to say if you skimp and penny pinch, you'll be sadly disappointed. Better ingrediaents here make a big difference in the result and taste. My final version: Meat Mixture: (set for 30m in Fridge) 1.5 pounds Organic Grass fed ground beef. 1/4 cup HQ Thick BBQ sauce 2 TBSP Teriyaki Sauce 2 TBSP Pineapple Juice. 1 TBSP Bacon Fat. Smoked Hickory Salt Ground Pepper (Lots) Topping, Fresh Cut Pineapple Slices (Finger width) Apple Smoked (or Hickory Smoked) non cured Bacon. (Trader Joes) . Cook on High Heat grill. Add (Partially pan cooked) Bacon and Pineapple 1/2 way through meat cook to first cooked side. This recipe has a lot of play to it, so as you can see I bumped this up a notch.
