Onion Crunch Burger

Onion Crunch Burger, look what Patti made for me with tons of onion flavor! I love taking pictures and then eating big, big burgers.  Patti put chopped sweet onion and
Swimmin’ in Smoke Cattle Call on the inside and topped it with red onion and crunchy French fried onions. To make it extra special she used my smoked cheddar cheese in thick slices. Then she gave it a “Kiss of Smoke”. Hamburger Heaven here.

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…

Onion Crunch Burger,
Our Ingredients

Cooking Directions: Onion Crunch Burger

Place hamburger in large bowl. Gently mix in sweet onion and seasoning. Form into four 1/2 pound patties and put them back into the refrigerator until you’re ready for the grill. Burgers hold together when they go on the grill cold.

Preheat your grill grates to 400* (205c). When your grill grates are “Screaming Hot” place your hamburger patties directly on them for about 7 minutes per side with a quarter turn at 3 ½ minutes or so. Your grilling time will vary from mine a little due to the patties will vary in size. So cook by your internal temperature. Add the cheese the last 3 minutes or so of your cook.

When your patties reach an internal temperature around 165 degrees (74c) pull them off, cover it and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving. U.S.D.A. safe is 165 degrees (74c). Keep in mind that the meat will continue cooking for another 5 to 10 degrees after you pull it off the grill. I 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,
