All American Grilled Burger


Sometimes you just need a good burger and this is one of my go-to recipes for a classic, American-Style Grilled Cheeseburger. 


  • 1lb 80/20 ground chuck
  • 1 teaspoon Killer Hogs AP Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Killer Hogs Steak Rub
  • 4 pats of salted butter
  • 8 strips of bacon cooked
  • 4 sesame seed hamburger buns – toasted
  • Lettuce, sliced tomatoes, Pickles, Mayo, and Mustard


  1. Prepare Weber kettle style grill for 2 zone cooking – hot coals on one side and cool zone on the opposite side.
  2. Season the ground chuck with AP Seasoning and divide into 4 portions forming each into a ball.  Place each ball of ground chuck on a burger press (or form into a patty by hand)
  3. Season each burger patty with steak seasoning on both sides.  Make an indention in the center of each patty and place a pat of butter in the depressions.
  4. Place the burgers on the grill grate on the cool side at first.  After 3 minutes move them a little closer to the fire but not directly over.  Flip each patty after 6 minutes and repeat the process until the reach your desired doneness (mine is medium which is about 12 total min cook time)
  5. Place a slice of cheese over each burger right at the end and let it melt for 30 seconds before removing the burgers from the grill.
  6. To build the burgers start with a toasted sesame see bun slathered with mayo and a little mustard on the bottom bun.  Add your favorite burger toppings mine are: lettuce, sliced tomato, and hamburger style dill pickle slices.  Place the burger patty on top and finally the top half of the bun slathered with a little extra mayo.
