Light the Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal in a charcoal chimney or mound inside your grill and let burn for 10-15 minutes.
(Optional) Place a handful of Hickory Wood Chunks onto fire and let burn for 5 minutes.
In a bowl, mix the ground chuck beef, salt, pepper, and chili powder thoroughly.
Once mixed, use your hands to mold burger patties to desired size (should make about 4 large patties).
Place patties on grill and let cook about 5 min per side. When the patties are within 2 minutes of being done, then place crumbled bleu cheese on top.
Grill burger buns, if desired, for about 1 minute.
Place the freshly grilled burgers onto the bun, add bacon and other toppings.
