BBQ Burgers

This BBQ Burger recipe is easy to make. The burgers grill up with great color and have a tangy BBQ flavor you can taste in every bite. The secret is to use a good BBQ sauce as the main flavoring for the burgers.

For great burgers, we recommend using an 80/20 ground beef and using our Old No. 44 BBQ Sauce.

A couple of dishes that go well with these burgers are our Creamed Corn and Quick Pickled Spicy Carrots.

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 4 burgers


  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 cup BBQ sauce
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp garlic powder


  • Take a pound of hamburger and mix the BBQ sauce, salt, pepper, and garlic powder thoroughly into the burgers. Let the mixture sit for five minutes so the burger can absorb all the flavors, divide the burger into fourths and use your hands to make patties about a half an inch thick.
  • Use your thumbs to dimple the top of the burger. Dimpling burgers before you put them on the grill helps them cook flat.
  • Grill the burgers on a medium-high grill for five minutes and flip them over, grill for another five to six minutes or until they have reached the desired doneness. Serve on toasted buns with the same BBQ sauce that went into the burgers.
  • You can make them even better by serving a couple of strips of bacon on each burger.
