Hamburger Directions:

  1. Patty forming- using thawed out ground beef, place ground beef into a mixing bowl. Add in ground pepper, sea salt, onion powder, garlic powder, seasoning salt, and Worcestershire sauce. Mix and form the meat into patties of your size choice.
  2. Place into fridge for overnight marinade. Splash some Worcestershire sauce on top of each patty.
  3. Set your Bradley Smoker to the above settings.
  4. Place hamburger patties onto the Bradley smoker rack. I use the Bradley Smoker Nonstick mats to keep my food from sticking to the racks when I smoke.
  5. Smoke the patties at 226 F for 60 minutes and sprits every 30 minutes.
  6. After smoking for 60 minutes, time to crank up the temperature to 260F.
  7. Smoke the hamburgers until they reach an internal temperature of 155F, that’s 5 degrees away from being cooked to USDA standards.
  8. Now fire up the grill and sear those patties on both sides to get a nice crisp texture on the outside of the patties. Once the internal temperature reaches 160F the patties are done cooking and it’s time to build the burger.
  9. Using the sriracha hamburger buns, add the following, peanut butter spread, lettuce, meat patty, tomatoes, onions, and top it off with the strawberry ketchup sauce.
  10. Enjoy!
