This Smoked Bacon Cheese Burger is on the menu at my house more than any other food! Cooking them takes longer, but the added flavor is well worth the wait. You get a delicious smokey flavor while also being able to keep the Smoked Bacon Cheese Burger super moist. You’ll have everyone saying these are the best they’ve ever had!
Arrange tomatoes, pickles and bacon on the platter along side the grilled onion so everyone can add the toppings of their choice along with ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise.
