Where has that thing called Summer gone? With all the recent cold and unsettled weather you’d be fooled into thinking it was still Spring or even winter! Fear not as there is a heat wave on the way! We all know what that means… BBQ’s at the ready! So I thought I’d share a few quick and easy BBQ recipes

Smokey sweet bacon burger


500g minced beef

8 slices streaky bacon

4 slices burger cheese


Vine Tomatoes

Sliced red onions 

Salt and pepper

1 bottle Jack Daniel’s® Smokey Sweet Barbecue Glaze

4 brioche buns

Place the minced beef, salt, pepper and Jack Daniels® Smokey Sweet sauce in a bowl. Mix well and shape into four even sized patties.

Place the burgers and bacon on to your BBQ and cook until crispy.

When the meat has cooked, brush the burgers with the remaining sauce and add cheese and back to the BBQ until the cheese has melted.

Slice the brioche buns half and place on the BBQ until golden brown.

Assemble the burger by topping one half of the with lettuce, followed by sliced red onions, one burger, two slices of bacon, and the remaining brioche bun. Serve & enjoy
