  • 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

  1. Light the Cowboy Hardwood Lump Charcoal in a charcoal chimney or mound inside your grill and let burn for 10-15 minutes.
  2. (Optional) Place a handful of Hickory Wood Chunks onto fire and let burn for 5 minutes.
  3. In a bowl, mix the ground chuck beef, salt, pepper, and chili powder thoroughly.
  4. Once mixed, use your hands to mold burger patties to desired size (should make about 4 large patties).
