Chipotle BBQ hamburgers, the spice of life.
The temperature is officially spring-like and the grill
has been dusted off. Burgers are in our future and I am
excited. I personally love hamburgers. Not necessarily
because of the mouth watering thought of choice ground
beef with the fat slowly dripping into the fire creating
a smell that is uniquely relaxing, but because of the
versatility of the sandwich.
I know a serious bunch of ways to make great burgers
but the first choice of the season was Chipotle BBQ Burgers.
First we prepared the grill by pilling up Mesquite charcoal
and firing it up! Then we took about 2 pounds of ground
beef and 2 tablespoons of Knox's Chipotle BBQ Rub. Mix
these two simple ingredients together. The smoky smell
of the Chipotle is a teaser, just wait. Make patties and
When the grill is hot, flatten out the coals. Toss those
patties on the grill and prepare yourself. As the spices
warm up and release, the smell blends with the cooking
burger. It is excellent. Grill for about 4 or 5 minutes
per side. Do not press the burgers. Pressing them squeezes
out succulent juices and flavor.
We garnished our Chipotle BBQ burgers with lettuce, tomato
and onion. We made a Chipotle Mayonnaise to bump up the
experience and sat down to a slice of grilling heaven.
Mix together and chill. The mayo will take on a brownish
color because of the Chipotle and Guajillo peppers but
the flavor is not a dull one. Smooth creamy mayo, smoky
aroma and a spicy bite all in one shot.

Knox's Cracked Pepper Burger
This blend makes a hamburger more like a steak burger.
The earthiness of the cracked pepper compliments the flavor
of the ground beef and do not underestimate the heat of
cracked pepper. This burger has a bit of bite.
