Default Bacon Cheese Sausage Burgers On My New Kettle (Pron a plenty)

After seeing Zings post I knew I had to try this. Problem was I dont have a grill. So I sprung for a new One Touch Gold 22.5.

Now time to break it in with some burgers. I made a beef mix with some 80/20 and spices along with an egg and some bread crumbs. Got my Jimmy Dean sausage and started building

No pics of the cheese but its in there. Quite frankly they came out a little big

The plan was a reverse sear on the kettle, so I lit a chimney of lump and pushed it to the back. I added some chunks of peach wood I recently recieved from I let it simmer down and started smoking the burgers indirectly. I think the temp stayed fairly low because I must have had them on there for 30-45 min (wasnt paying attention). By the time they were ready for a sear the coals were dying down and I couldnt get them crisp'd but it may have worked out for the best. They got plump but kept a good burger shape, just a little enormous for everyone. Bottom line: Fa nominal! Everyone loved them. The cheese exploded on the first bite and was quite messy but worth it. I didnt have chili a la Zing's burgers, but I did doctor up some Bush's beans to add that little extra.

My creation:

I was the only one who could finish the whole thing, but Ive been preparing for this day for a while

And o yeah check out that smoke ring!

Thanks again Zing for the inspiration and a reason to finally pull the trigger on a kettle.
