"These burgers are among my family's top choices of gourmet burgers that I've concocted. A rich barbecue flavor followed by a sweet aftertaste makes for one flavorful burger. Use a Hawaiian-style thick barbecue sauce if possible. If your sauce is thin, use less in the burger mix so the burgers hold together when grilling." — Steve

I hate to rate my own recipe, but I felt I needed to post some extra info about this burger for people. I cannot stress enough how important it is to properly form your patties. All the air MUST be out which takes a little time, otherwise they will fall apart. I never have any problems with them falling apart, but I cook a lot of burgers. I also would just like to repeat that the BBQ sauce used in this recipe is very thick. Thick BBQ sauce is a must.
These had a nice taste, but they wouldn't stick together. My husband tried to cook them on the grill like the recipe said, but when he tried to flip the first one it fell apart. He ended up bringing them in and I finished cooking them on the stove, but they still were pretty hard to flip and get on the buns without them falling to pieces.
The name suits it right, but OMGosh.. its so good. I did have to make one change which will just put this over the "top" next time. I did not realize that we had no bacon. I used real bacon bits and just added it to the burger mix. I used Dave's BBQ Sauce from this site because I was out too. I dont have a grill, I did these in my "iron skillet". I also put the slice of pineapple in the skillet just to heat and warm, that was the only thing I did not think would be good was the cold pineapple on the burger. You want to crip your bun. I used homemade hamburger buns from this site too.. When you make these the meal is "all about the BURGER"... Thank you for the recipe.. great job.
DELICIOUS!!!! First I halved the recipe. Okay, now I am very familiar with what I like, so when preparing the meat I added a little Adobo and garlic powder. I didn't have hawaiian barbecue sauce, so I used original jack daniels bbq sauce mixed with some pineapple juice from the canned pineapple slices (I used the directed amount in the burger and set some aside for the buns). We use microwavable bacon, so I cooked the burgers with the bacon in the pan next to the burgers then topped the burgers with the bacon and cheese. These burgers have it all, the juiciness, crunchiness, sweet and salty, a great burger and a must try!
a great spin on an old classic, definatly worth making again
Loved these! I only used two pounds on ground beef and they were still huge! I had no problem with them falling apart. We used Sweet Baby Rays Sweet and Spicy bbq sauce. I did add some extra sauce to the burger! Yum
We LOVED these! I made them exactly as written except for just cooking the bacon seperately and putting it on the burger after (I never have good luck w/ wrapping the bacon around, lol). I had no trouble with them falling apart or anything. I served them on toasted Hawaiin Burger Buns. This recipe is a definate keeper! Thanks for sharing. :)
Good, I love grilled pineapple and this was delish!!
