Bacon Wrapped Burger Bowls

August 2nd I turned 53!! Tammy and I wanted to have a few friends over to Grandma Betty’s (Tammy’s mom) to swim and cook out. Naturally I got to cook!! So what do I want that won’t tie me up at the grill all day? Oh yea, Bacon Wrapped Burger Bowls!!

Bacon Wrapped Burger Bowls!!!!

So I’ve seen these little Bacon Wrapped Burger Bowls popping up here and there and , of course, I needed to try’em!! Duh!!

These are really simple and you can make them any way you want!

Heres what you’ll need.

  • 80/20 ground chuck
  • Your favorite bacon
  • A Tabasco Bottle!
  • Salt, Pepper, Garlic, Cajun seasoning, 2 Vets BBQ’s Rib Rub…you know, just whatever you like to season with. Experiment around with stuff like soy sauce or worcestershire sauce. I’m thinking the liquid would cause the beef to fall apart. I chose to use dry rub.
  • Whatever you want to stuff them with! More on that in a bit.

I fried some Taters and onions and stuffed it in the burgers then topped it with a chunk of pepper-jack cheese!

I cooked them indirectly over charcoal with some hickory chips for smoke about 30-40 minutes.
