    Decided to step my burgers up and do something different. I had picked up some Jim Beam chips awhile back and wanted to put them to use.

    It's just my wife and I so I used just a pound of hamburger 80/20. Mixed in some salt pepper minced onion Worcestershire a dash of Tabasco and of course Jim Beam.

    Added a sprinkle of Gourmet Burger for good measure. Divided into thirds I got 2 out of the 3.

    Smoked them with Jim Beam chips at 225 for about 45 minutes.

    Nice TBS!

    Kitties were curious as usual so I had to make some chicken on the grill for them.

    Took them off and slapped them on the grill for less than a minute.

    Added a slice of Pepper Jack and Cheddar on a corn dusted bun with all the fixin's.

    They turned out amazing!

    Looks great! How would you compare what you just did to regular grilling of a burger?

    Thanks for the comments and points! If I had to compare it to regular grilling I would have to say smoking is the way to go.

    I have done other smoked burgers and the infusion of the smoke then reversed seared to lock it all in is the way to go. It adds such a rich flavorful taste that you can taste well after you are finished with the burger. My wife won't touch any kind of whisky or bourbon and she loved it.

    Give it a try, you won't be disappointed!
