Head Country Championship Seasoning, The Original
1/4 cup of Head Country Bar-B-Q Sauce, The Original
1 pound of 80/20 ground chuck
1/3 cup of mayo
1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder
Cheese of your choice
Any of your favorite burger toppings
1. Preheat your smoker between 225-275°F.
2. Form burger patties, purchase fresh preformed patties. Anywhere from 1/3 -1/2 pound each.
3. Liberally sprinkle the Head Country Championship Seasoning and black pepper on to the patties.
4. Put patties in the smoker.
5. Mix the BBQ sauce, mayo, and garlic powder together.
6. Once the internal meat temperature is about 5-10°F short of your desire finishing temperature (I pulled them at 130°F), remove the patties.
7. Sear the burger patties for about 2 minutes on each side. I put an oiled cast iron pan in the firebox. You can sear them over coals directly if you have a 2-zone grilling setup. Searing it on the stove top would also work. Once you flip it over once, throw some cheese on it if you like.
8. Build your burger and enjoy!
