Texas Two Step pellet grill recipe BBQ smokerThe Texas Two Step

We were cooking at Craft Brewery, Lake Elsinore a few weeks ago and ran out of hamburger buns. I told the boys that I had Texas toast if they wanted to try a burger on that. To make a long story short we blazed through 2 loaves of toast. I think they liked it a bit…

So, I got to thinking, a painful process on the best of days. How can I make an ultimate burger using Texas toast? We give you the “Texas Two Step”: 2 slices of Texas toast buttered and toasted with Parmesan cheese. Piled high with 3 slices of Pepper Jack Cheese, 6 strips of pepper bacon and 2 1/3 pound gourmet grass fed beef patties. Off the hook!!!

Directions: The Texas Two Step

Mix the Parmesan cheese with the butter. Do this to taste. Patti loves a thick spread with lots of cheese. Butter one side of each piece of toast liberally; this will be the outside of your burger. Cook the pepper bacon and set aside.

Grill your burgers, when you turn then add the toast with the buttered side up. Give it a few minutes to brown then flip them over with the butter side down. When you have a good toast on the bread, add the cheese. One slice on one piece of bread and each patty. When the cheese is melted it is time to put on your boots. Add two strips of pepper bacon to the cheese on the bread, stack a patty on that. Do it again, two strips of pepper bacon, stack a patty on top of that. Now, the last two strips of bacon and top it with the toasted Texas toast.

Cooking Directions: Royall Wood Pellet Grill/Smoker

Open the lid and set the dial to “High”, turn it on. After about five minutes you can shut the lid. Give it about 10 minutes to heat up. Patti has lined the drip pan with foil for me, it makes for easier clean up.

Place your burgers directly onto the center grill. You’re going for 5 to 7 minutes a side here, depending on your taste. I think cooking burgers to a medium well brings out the beef flavors, but you don’t want to overdo it. Patti likes a little moo in her meat. USDA suggests a temperature  of 165 for ground beef. I use a Maverick ProTemp Instant Read Thermometer for checking meat temperatures.

After 5 minutes turn your patties add the toast with the buttered side up. Give it a few minutes to brown then flip them over with the butter side down. When have a good toast on the bread add the cheese. One slid on one piece of bread and each patty. When the cheese is melted it is time to put on your boots. Add two strips of pepper bacon to the cheese on the bread, stack a patty on that. Do it again, two strips of pepper bacon, stack a patty on top of that. Now, the last two strips of bacon and top it with the toasted Texas toast.

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 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, 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 Louisiana, Green Mountain, Memphis, Royall, Traeger pellet grills, Char Griller side box smoker, Saber, Charmglow, Char-Broil, The Big Easy, Pacific Living Pizza 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 even do 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,
Ken & Patti
