Smoky Jack Burgers
Source of Recipe
From "Jack Daniel's Cookbook" by Lynne Tolley and Mindy Merrell
"I like to serve the Smoky Jack burgers open-faced with Cheddar cheese and bacon. Instead of the usual soft bun, try a grilled English muffin half."
List of Ingredients
• 3 Tbsp Jack Daniel's Tennessee Whiskey
• 3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
• 2 tsp garlic salt
• 2 tsp liquid smoke
• 1½ pounds ground beef
• 6 slices cheese, optional
• 6 strips cooked bacon, optional
• 6 buns or English muffins
Combine the Jack Daniel's, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, and liquid smoke in a small bowl. Add 3 tablespoons of the sauce to the ground beef in a large mixing bowl. Blend well with your hands and form into six patties.
Sear the patties about 5 minutes per side over medium-high heat. Baste both sides with the remaining sauce and grill until the burgers are cooked to your liking.
During the last minutes of cooking, top with cheese and bacon, both optional, and lightly toast the buns or English muffins over medium heat.
