  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 ciabatta bread
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 slices Monterrey jack peppercorn cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons honey barbecue sauce
  • 1 jalapeño pepper
  • 1/2 small onion

Cooking Directions

  1. Clean ground beef and add to bowl, then sprinkle with salt, pepper, and garlic powder
  2. Chop jalapeño pepper into fine little bits and add to ground beef, then add olive oil, Worcestershire sauce, and honey barbecue sauce then use hands to mesh all ingredients together
  3. On a plate, create flat patties of the ground beef from bowl and then cover with plastic wrap (refrigerate if not planning on cooking the burgers immediately)
  4. Cut ciabatta into 4 quarter pieces that can be sliced and made into hamburger rolls
  5. Fill 1 chimney starter with lump hardwood charcoal and mesquite wood chunks (not soaked), then ignite with paper towel dressed olive oil under starter
  6. Once wood charcoal turns grey, add to grill pit
  7. Take 1/2 onion and use tong fork to dress grates, sliding back and forth until almost burned (you can even leave the onion to continue to cook on the grill as a topping)
  8. Add jalapeño, honey bbq sauce burgers to grill and sear over high heat zone for 2-3 minutes per side, then move to a medium-heat zone and let cook for 10 minutes per side for medium well-to-well done (6-8 minutes for medium rare-to-medium)
  9. Once burgers are almost done, add Monterrey peppercorn jack cheese until it begins to melt and place sliced ciabatta bread on grill to provide a nice crunchy texture (2 minutes)
  10. Remove jalapeño, honey bbq sauce cheeseburgers and place in ciabbata rolls, add any additional condiments that you desire
  11. Ready to serve!
