  • 1 lb of ground chuck beef
  • 8 strips of cooked bacon
  • Pretzel bread burger buns
  • 1 cup of crumbled bleu cheese
  • 1 tsp of kosher salt
  • 1 tsp of black pepper
  • 1 tsp of chili powder


  • Lettuce
  • Heirloom tomatoes
  • Onions
  • Handful of Cowboy Hickory Wood Chunks


  • 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.
