Things To Grab
- Charcoal or gas grill
- Large bowl
- Meat thermometer
- Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct cooking over medium heat.
- In a large bowl, combine ground beef, crackers, 3 tablespoons barbecue sauce, garlic powder and mustard. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Shape into four 3/4-inch-thick patties, about 8 ounces each.
- Grill patties on a well-greased rack for 12 to 14 minutes or until internal temperature of patties reaches 160 degrees, turning once halfway through. During the last 2 minutes of grilling, top patties with Muenster and smoked Gouda cheese, and place buns, cut sides down, on grill directly over heat to lightly toast. Remove from grill; let patties rest for 5 minutes.
- Serve patties on buns with remaining 1/3 cup barbecue sauce, tomatoes, red onion, bacon, lettuce and, if desired, pickle slices.
