The ultimate summer food, BBQ Burger!   As my personal preference are sliders over the traditional big patty.  What makes this experience even better is if you can cook them over a hot lump coal BBQ.  Cooking is faster and the smell….yum!

Regretfully the club I’m at only supplies propane BBQ, which is a terrible way to cook.  So believe it or not on the boat I have no problems doing the burgers on a hot pan.

For those that are new to making sliders, well your topping will literally slide off of them.  🙂  So it’s really important that you make your patty full of flavour and keep it juicy so that you don’t need much for toppings.

TOPPINGS THAT WORK FOR SLIDERS:

  • Sliced cheese on top
  • Mushrooms (These are hard to keep on)
  • Sautéed Onions
  • Bacon strips
