If you thinking of grinding the bacon to mix with the burger, I'd skip it. I've had burger with ground bacon before and the bacon doesn't cook at the same rate as the beef and creates a weird textural thing. Not to mention it makes the burger a greasy, salty mess in my opinion. I know there is a sentiment that mixing bacon with anything will make it better, but I tend to disagree. I've had burgers, meatloaf, sausage all with ground bacon and none better than the original.

What I have done with ground bacon is make a small thin patty to top a burger with, that was killer, absolutely awesome. I cooked the bacon patty first, nice and crisp all around and on both sides, then cooked the burgers in the bacon fat, out of this world.
