WOW!!! Our Bacon Ring Burger made it into Green Mountains Grills CookBook !!!

Bacon Ring Burger, we saw the Bacon Wrapped Onion Rings on Facebook and had to have a closer look. The original recipe was by John Thomas of Grilling 24×7, http://www.grilling24x7.com/oring.shtml. My first thought was “What a great burger topper”! So, here is our take on these and a great burger. You’ll see that I made some changes to fit in with what I had in mind. So, we made these for our Date Night and filled them with sautéed garlicky mushrooms. We call them Bacon Rings, what a treat.

Patti and I have set one night a week just for us. It’s our date night. We usually put something special on our Green Mountain Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker but sometimes we cook inside. We always eat outside on our patio where it is very comfortable with a rainforest theme.  Wood Pellet Patio Heater, little lights, candles, lanterns and surround sound. We enjoy a little wine, or strawberry margaritas using frozen strawberries for ice, good food, music and sometimes a dance or two…

Make your Burgers and Put Them in the Refrigerator

Directions: Bacon Ring Burger

Mix your seasonings together with the hamburger and make your patties. We made 5 out of 2 ½ pounds. Then, place them in the refrigerator. (Burgers hold together better if they go on the grill cold) Sauté the mushrooms and shallots in the butter and set them aside. Put them on the grill when the burgers go on to heat up.

Coat the onion rings with the Country Bob’s All Purpose Sauce and season with the Roasted Garlic and Chipotle Rub. Wrap each onion ring with 3 strips of bacon and secure with your toothpicks. Yes, 3 strips of bacon. I smoked these for an hour at 225 degrees (107c). Pull them off the grill and turn it up to 350 degrees (174c) for the burgers. We put the burgers on for 6 minutes a side with a quarter turn at 3 minutes. Top with cheese and bacon ring. Then, fill the bacon ring with the mushrooms.

I like to smoke everything for at least 30 minutes with an hour being even better. After all the Green Mountain wood pellet grill is a awesome smoker, use it for all the wood smoke flavor it will add to your food.

Preheat your grill 225* (107c). Place the bacon wrapped onion rings directly onto the grill and just let it hang out in the smoke and get happy for an hour or so. This is referred to as “Smoking” or “Hot Smoking”, the temperature is 225 degrees (107c). You can skip this part and go to the next step

After an hour, turn the (Temperature Control) up to 350 degrees (174c) and pull the Bacon wrapped onion rings off the grill. When the grill comes up to temperature put your meat back onto the grill. I did this for 3 minutes per side. The burgers I did for 6 minutes aside with a quarter turn at 3 minutes. Top with cheese and bacon ring. Then fill the bacon ring with the mushrooms. Perfect.

U.S.D.A. recommends an internal temp of 165* (74c). We use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer (Our Store) for checking meat temps.

Note: I get a lot of questions about the kind of pellets you can use with a recipe. Keep in mind that a recipe is just an outline. Some you need to follow closely like when you are making bread, but most you can do anything you can dream, our favorite way to cook. Feel free to mix and match the pellets until you find a combination you really like. Also you are only smoking at temps less than 250 degrees (122c), anything higher is cooking and there will not be much if any smoke so it does not matter what kind of pellet you are using.

About our Recipes

We do our recipes on our patio where we have a lineup of grills, including Green Mountain, Sawtooth, Louisiana, Royall, Memphis, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Outdoor Oven, Lodge Sportsman’s, Brinkman and Weber. I call it our “Wall of Grill”. Our grilling styles are healthy and low fat and will fit pelletheads, gas, natural wood and even charcoal purists. Almost any of our recipes can be done on any kind of good BBQ.

The important thing to keep in mind is TIME & TEMPERATURE. You can do our recipes on any grill, even some of them in the oven or crock pot, but, then you lose all the flavors you get from cooking outdoors. But sometimes it does rain.

Remember that a recipe is simply an outline; it is not written in stone. Don’t be afraid to make changes to suit your taste. Take it and run with it….

Live your Passion and Do What You Love,
Ken & Patti
