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

Preheat your Z Grills smoker to 225 degrees F


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


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


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.


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.


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


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.
