cheese burger on wood pellet grill

 1 ½ pounds ground beef chuck 80/20
 4 slices cheddar cheese optional
 4 burger buns
 assorted burger toppings
Smoked Burger Seasoning
 1 Tablespoon Kosher salt
 1 Tablespoon coarse ground black pepper
 1 Tablespoon garlic powder
1

Preheat your Z Grills smoker to 225 degrees F

2

Shape your ground beef into 4 patties, about 1/2 inch larger in diameter than your burger buns.

3

Combine the burger seasoning in a small bowl and sprinkle on both sides of your burger patties.

4

Place the seasoned patties on the grill and smoke for up to 1 hour, or until the internal temperature of your burgers reads 135 degrees F. Whichever comes first.

5

Increase the heat in your grill to at least 400 degrees F. Sear the burger patties for about 2-3 minutes on both sides. Add cheese after the first flip, if desired.

6

Check the temperature of your burger patties for desired doneness. The FDA recommends 165 degrees F for a well done burger.

7

Remove the burger patties and toast the buns over the high heat. Assemble your smoked burgers on your toasted buns with any desired toppings and serve immediately.
