Let's get grilling

1 Using Kingsford® charcoal, build a fire for direct grilling and preheat to medium-high (approximately 400°F). While the grill preheats, gently blend ground beef and spicy ranch seasoning mix in a large mixing bowl.
2 Form seasoned beef into four ¼ pound burger patties.
3 Grill the burgers for approximately 4 minutes per side until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F. During the last minute of cooking, baste both sides of the burgers with Kingsford® Honey Jalapeño Mesquite BBQ Sauce* and top each burger with a slice of cheese.
4 To assemble the burgers, place lettuce and tomato slices on each bottom bun, top with a burger patty, and bacon.
5 Brush additional BBQ sauce on the cut side of the top bun then place on the burger.
6 *Tip: Always add sauce at the end of the cooking process as too much exposure to direct heat can cause it to burn. Basting with a few minutes left in the grilling process ensures that the sauce has time to caramelize without overcooking.
