BigAss Brisket Bacon Cheeseburger Recipe! | Sunterra Outdoors | Ballistic Burgers

What would you call this burger? The only name I could think of was BigAss Brisket Bacon Cheeseburger, cuz' that's what it is! 10 ounces of ground brisket and 30% wagyu fat make up the patty. Seared on Sunterra Outdoor / Sunterra Pro's Fireside Grill, on the flattop first then finished on the open grate over mesquite. I also fried a nice slice on onion in melted wagyu fat, along with some thick cut bacon. The burger was also topped with aged yellow cheddar, white horseradish cheddar, dill pickle and hot banana pepper rings. KILLER BURGER! Sunterra Outdoor:

Kingston Bacon Cheeseburger | My New "Best" Burger! | Ballistic BBQ

Influenced by the food of Jamaica, I give you the "Kingston Bacon Cheeseburger!" Jerked bacon, fried plantains, "jerk-burger sauce," habanero cheese, and grilled onion pushed the flavors of this burger to new limits. Cooked up on the Sunterra Pro Fireside Grill on an open flame. After shooting this video, I couldn't stop thinking about this burger and concluded that this is my new all-time favorite burger! Incredible layers of flavor, that I couldn't stop thinking about. This burger will make the Ballistic BBQ Burger Book!

Jerk Seasoning:
1/4 cup allspice berries
4 cloves garlic
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon ground thyme
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 habanero peppers, seeded
2 green onions, chopped
1 1/2 tablespoons soy sauce
Salt and Pepper to taste
Blend above until you reach a paste consistency.
Add a little paste to mayo to taste for burger sauce.

Tessaro's Gourmet Burger Copycat | Cheeseburger Recipe | Ballistic Burgers

Tessaro's Gourmet Kelly Burger was named after the owner of Tessaro's American Bar and Hardwood Grill ( ), The Gourmet Kelly Burger is a 9-10 ounce beef patty, grilled over hardwood to taste. It is topped with grilled onion, grilled mushrooms, and bacon. Then fresh red onion, tomato, green leaf lettuce, and mayo, all on bakery-fresh buns. My version includes a blend of fresh-ground chuck and ribeye steak. I cooked this up on the Sunterra Pro Fireside Grill . (The following is from Tessaro's Website) "Kelly Harrington, who sadly passed away in 2019. When he took over the Bloomfield neighborhood bar, Kelly kept the name but changed the menu and from then on Tessaro’s has been serving what has been described over and over again as one of the nation’s best burgers. If you have traveled through or lived in the Pittsburgh neighborhood of Bloomfield anytime within the last 25 years, chances are you’ve caught the rich aroma of succulent, half-pound, all-beef, ground chuck burgers sizzling on Tessaro’s hardwood grill wafting down Liberty Avenue or one of its cross streets. With an in-house butcher grinding-out marble-to-meat ratios of perfect proportions and a custom-crafted iron grill coaxing rivulets of juices onto the flames, our aim is to deliver a dining experience that is as honest and as authentic as Pittsburgh itself." This is my attempt at reproducing their Gourmet Kelly Burger, and I hope I did this wonderful burger justice! I cooked this up on the Sunterra Pro Fireside Grill. Enjoy!
