    I usually make sliders in the house but wanted to try a batch on the drum.
    When I make these in the house, I just brown the burger and spoon it onto a bun instead of forming patties.

    I mixed 1 1/2 lbs of burger with
    1 pkg of onion soup mix
    1 egg
    some worcestershire sauce
    about 1/3 cup of catsup
    and 1/4 cup of water.

    Wrapped some of the patties in bacon..

    Smoked with a small bit of mesquite,
    I put them around the outside of the drum, it cooks cooler than the center.

    They took a little over an hour..

    I use hawaiian sweet rolls for my sliders. I just like them the best.

    I cut the rolls open, add a burger and top with cheese. Then flatten them with the palm of my hand.

    The flattened sliders go back into the cooker for 15 minutes (wrapped).

    They are ready when the cheese is nice and melted..

    The sliders with some smoked tater chips...

    They were tasty!

    Thanks for checking out my supper.

    Thank you so much folks!
    JDT, I put some olive oil, cracked black pepper and kosher salt on the potatoes before smoking...then sliced and floured them before dipping in the batter.

    Just seasoned the burgers with pepper before smoking on the drum.

    TXbbqman, I love those rolls too. They are perfect for sliders. [​IMG]

    Thank you Fire it up and Scoobadoo!!

    Fire it up, thanks about the chips... I like em crunchy. Almost fried some dill pickles but I just had them not long ago and wanted something different. [​IMG]

    Scoobadoo, I love White Castles but can only get frozen ones here. Sure would be nice to have a White Castle close by! [​IMG][​IMG]

    As usual, awesome. Shame on you for craving a White Castle slider when you've got a plate that looks like yours.
    Good job!

    Of all pics I seen today, yours have my stomach growling! Thanks for sharing. This looks like the perfect comfort food for us here today. Icy rain spitting outside, cold front moving in, cloud cover heavy. I appreciate your idea for the potatoes, I have gotta try them.

    I have done sliders a few times now and they are awesome. I usually just get a bunch of ground beef season to taste then lay flat in a cookie sheet and cut them with a knife into squares makes it really easy and each of them are perfect sized and I use the same rolls as well.
