  • Yields: 8 Servings
  • Cook time: 10 minutes
  • Prep time: 20 minutes

Ingredients

Main Ingredients
  • 1½ pounds ground beef (preferably an 80/20 blend)
  • salt and coarse ground pepper
  • jalapeño-pimento cheese (recipe follows)
  • 8 mini brioche buns
Jalapeño-Pimento Cheese
  • 1 pound sharp Cheddar cheese (grated)
  • 1 jalapeño pepper (ribs and seeds removed), minced
  • 1 (7 oz.) jar pimentos (drained)
  • 3/4 cups mayonnaise
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

Instructions

Jalapeño-Pimento Cheese Instructions:
Combine all ingredients and mix until well-blended. Refrigerate at least one hour to allow the flavors to combine.

Instructions:
Fire up a full chimney of Original Kingsford® Charcoal, or light a pile of about 100 briquets. Configure the coals for a two-zone fire, placing the briquets on one half of the charcoal grate to create a hot zone for grilling and a cool zone for moving the burgers during flare-ups. Adjust the bottom grill vents for medium-high heat cooking, approximately 400–425°F.

Gently form ground beef into eight 2-inch patties. Sprinkle both sides of burger patties liberally with salt and pepper.

Grill burgers until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F. Place burgers on the bottom buns, top each with approximately 2 tablespoons jalapeño-pimento cheese. Add top bun and serve immediately.
