BBQ Nacho Burger

I had to do something Super for the Big Game this weekend so I decided to combine two of my favorite football foods. Bbq Nachos and a Smoked Burger!

BBQ Nachos were invented in Memphis TN where some of the best bbq in world is created. Tender smoked pork is layered over tortilla chips along with copious amounts of melted nacho cheese. Of course you have to layer on some bbq sauce and a little dry rub or it wouldn’t be Memphis BBQ.

I took the BBQ Nacho a step further with this recipe forgoing the bed of tortilla chips and layering it on top a 1/2lb smoked hamburger. This is one seriously Super Burger.

  • 4 jumbo burger buns

For Garnish:

  • Lettuce
  • Tomato slices
  • Dill pickle slices

  1. Season pork butt with AP Seasoning and The BBQ Rub; smoke at 235 degrees until internal temperature reaches 195-200 degrees. Allow to cool for 30 minutes and pull by hand into bite size portions.
  2. Separate the ground chunk into 1/2lb portions and form into patties. Season each side with AP seasoning and a light coat of Hot rub on both sides.

    The lettuce and tomato seem out of place here. If you must have fresh veggies, I would suggest a slice of red onion on the bottom bun. It would help cut through the rest of the flavors. Just my two cents. Thanks for the recipe, live your YouTube show!

    As always a great video and great recipe! Turned out amazing! I was curious if you could do more with the barrel smoker or possibly even do a brisket on one? I feel the gateway is amazing but I am not using it to its full potential.
    Thanks and you truly are the reason I spend my paycheck every weekend on meat!

  3. This article is very informative and I feel like you are reading my mind. I will love to read your blogs daily.
