Can't say I have had a beef/bacon burger, but the local university sells por-con burgers, which is pork and bacon. They are awesome.

If I were to incorporate bacon into my burgers, and chop it up, and mix it into ground beef. I don't think you would need to be anywhere near 50/50 if you cook the bacon first.

I'd bet you a dollar that a 80/20 beef to fully cooked bacon bits would give you much more bacon flavor than a 50/50 mix of beef to raw bacon -- maybe even 90/10.

I will have to give this a few trial runs. Using different methods. Cause I do love bacon.

Just to finish my story...
I made another attempt to create a 50-50 burger. This time I used 93/7 ground beef mixed with the ground bacon and decided to fry it. I definitely smelled the bacon! I was so worried about undercooking the bacon that I ended up overcooking it and drying the burger out...but I could at least taste the bacon this time.

This was a lot of work. Next time I'll just leave the bacon as a topping.

I had my first 50/50 burger yesterday at a small tavern....honestly, I couldn't really taste the difference between that and a regular burger...until I tried my girlfriends regular burger. The taste was different but it still was not a bacon taste. It was my first, so I did not know what to expect. If you try a regular burger side-by-side with one, you can taste a difference but to me it was not the traditional bacon flavor. To get that, simple but bacon on top or fry it up and mix it in.

Just my .02¢
