Cooking Method

  1. Light up your BBQ and leave to heat up. If using Charcoal or Wood, you want to leave your BBQ for 15-20 minutes for the coals to really heat up.
    For a Gas BBQ, you’re looking to heat your BBQ to 350ºF to 400ºF, so your burgers cook quick. 
  2. Once heated, add your burgers to the grill and cook for 2-3 minutes. Flip your burgers over and cook for another 2-3 minutes. The internal temperature of the Beef Burgers should reach 160˚ F to 165˚F.
    Add your cheese to your burgers and leave to rest on the coolest part of the grill for long enough for the cheese to soften before removing. 
  3. Add your bacon to the grill and cook for 2-3 minutes before turning over and cooking for another 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and rest on some kitchen roll.  
  4. Build your burgers by lightly toasting your burger buns on the grill. Starting from the bottom bun, add a layer of lettuce, tomato, red onion, burger, cheese, bacon and a good dollop of chilli jam before sealing it all with your top bun.
