My BIG FAT Grain Free Life: World's Best Burgers

World's Best Burgers

The name of this recipe reminds me of the movie "Elf" - strange, I know, but go with me on this.  If you've seen the movie, remember the part where he sees a dingy New York diner with a sign that reads "World's Best Cup of Coffee"?  With a big smile on his face, Elf bursts into the diner shouting, "Congratulations!  World's best cup of coffee!  Great job everybody!"

I admit I feel a little like that diner in the movie, bragging on my hamburgers, but they really are wonderful.  They're juicy and flavorful and I often get requests for the recipe.

The inspiration for these burgers was received years ago from an old Martha Stewart Show.  The original recipe used A1 sauce and put a cold pat of butter inside each burger.  The butter was a little overkill - even for me in my butter days.  Now that we've removed butter from our diets (don't tell Paula Deen), we don't even miss it.

World's Best Burgers

2 lbs. organic ground chuck (I use Publix Greenwise)
1 lb. organic ground round
6 large egg yolks (if your eggs are small, you need 8)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
3/4 teaspoon pepper
3/4 cup OrganicVille Original BBQ sauce (agave sweetened, GF and refined sugar free)
Hickory or Mesquite smoking chips

Take a large sheet of aluminum foil and put a few handfuls of smoking chips down the middle.  Wrap it up tightly into a long log of sorts.  Poke several large holes in the foil.

Heat all burners of a gas grill on high.  Place smoking chips on one burner (I usually put it on the back burner.)  Close lid and allow to get good and hot - about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl and using a large serving fork (not hands - it makes the meat tough), mix together the ground chuck, ground round, egg yolks, garlic powder, salt, pepper and BBQ sauce until well combined.

When chips are smoking, turn down the other burners to low or medium, keeping the burner with the smoking chips on high.  Pat meat into burgers and cook according to your liking.  Be careful not to overcook.  Makes about 10-12 burgers.
