Bacon and Smoked-Cheese Burger

Recipe from: The Barbecue Bible by Steven Raichlen
Servings: 6

2 ¼ pounds ground round, chuck or sirloin
2 tablespoon. unsalted butter, melted
salt, fresh-ground pepper
12 thin slices bacon
6 slices Vidalia onion, ½ inch thick
6 slices smoked mozzarella, ¼ inch thick

Preheat a gas grill to high. Divide the meat into 6 equal portions. Lightly wet your hands with cold water, then form each portion into a round patty 4 inches across and of even thickness. Wrap each patty with 2 strips of bacon perpendicular to each other.

Oil the grill grate. Brush one side of the patties and onion slices with butter. Place butter-sides down on the grill and cook uncovered until nicely browned, about 4 minutes. Brush the other side lightly with more melted butter and turn the patties and onion slices with a spatula. Continue grilling, uncovered, until cooked to taste, about 4 minutes for medium.

Brush the cut sides of the buns with the remaining melted butter and place, cut sides down, on the grill the last 2 minutes.

Place the burgers and onion slices on the buns. Top with the cheese. The heat of the burgers will melt the cheese.
