BBQ Bacon Cowboy Burgers #BBQWeek

It's barbecue season and these Barbecue Bacon Cowboy Burgers will just wow your family and friends and your next cook out! These burgers are not just ordinary burgers, they are bursting with bbq flavor mixed right into the burger,

Topped with crispy onion rings, these burgers will make you feel like gathering around a campfire for sure!

Sometimes I chop the bacon up into small pieces and mix it into the burgers like I did today, and sometime I don't, and I just crisp up the bacon strips and put them on top of the burgers. The chopped  up version add's a wonderful flavor and texture to the burgers that is just incredible, but your guests won't always be able to tell it was bacon in the burger, they'll just know the flavor was fantastic, It's a fun twist on the burger, you may want to try!


Here's a photo of my meat mixture with the bacon all diced up and ready mix in!

Let's get those Cowboy Burgers on the grill!
