  • Turn your barbecue onto max heat.
    Take the burger patties out of the freezer and remove the paper separators. Season the burgers on both sides with the All-purpose barbecue seasoning.

Cooking the burgers

  • Get the frozen patties onto the grill and let them cook for around 5 minutes, then flip them over.  Keep flipping every 3-5 minutes until you reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

Add the cheese and butter the buns

  • Paint the top of the patties with Grannies gold mustard and then place a slice of cheese on top of that. Butter your buns and place them face down on the smoker to just melt up the butter and crisp up the bun a little bit.

Put it all together

  • Once the buns are toasted and the cheese is melted, place the burger patty on the bun and close it up. Add any other toppings you wish, like bacon, ketchup, mayo or vegetables, but really all the basics are there and you just took your frozen burger patties from a 3 to a 9.

Step by Step

  • Remove patties from freezer
  • Season on both sides with All Purpose rub
  • Grill burgers on max hit, flipping every 3-5 minutes until cooked through
  • Paint patties with Grannies gold mustard, and add cheese on top
  • Butter and toast the buns on the smoker
  • Put the burger together and add any extra toppings you want
