Cooking for 4 people


  • 1 ½ lb uncooked bacon
  • ½ lb bacon, cooked and finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp. barbecue dry rub seasoning
  • 4 kaiser rolls, split


  • 2 cups shredded iceberg lettuce
  • 2 large tomatoes, sliced
  • ½ cup barbecue sauce

1 Food Prep

Roughly chop the uncooked bacon and place in the freezer for approximately 15 minutes, until it begins to firm but hasn’t frozen through. Once partially frozen, feed it through the grinder attachment of a stand mixer or place in a food processor and roughly chop.

Once the bacon has been properly ground, gently mix in the chopped, cooked bacon and form into 4 burger patties. Season the patties lightly on both sides with barbeque dry rub seasoning.

2 Grill Prep

Fuel: We recommend We recommend Kingsford® Original Charcoal Briquets

Method: Direct-Heat Grilling

Temp: 400°F (Medium Heat)

3 The Cook

  • When you’re at temp, put cooking oil on a folded paper towel. Grab the oiled paper towel with long-handled tongs and oil the grate thoroughly. 

  • Place the patties on the grill, flip halfway through, and cook until they reach a minimum internal temperature of 160°F on a digital meat thermometer.  

  • To toast your kaiser rolls, open them and place them face down on the grill, directly over the coals. Watch your buns closely — they burn fast. Toasting takes anywhere from a few seconds to a minute, depending on how hot your coals are. 

  • To assemble the bacon burgers, spread the barbecue sauce on the buns, place a patty on the bottom bun, followed by shredded iceberg lettuce, and 2–3 slices of tomatoes. Add the top bun and serve immediately.
