Bacon Blue Cheese Burger


I took some 80/20 ground beef, made some burger patties and put some blue cheese in the middle. Then I made a bacon weave out of thick cut bacon, topped it with some seasoning and threw them on the smoker.

I used Apple Traeger pellets and set my smoker to 275 degrees and smoked the bacon a blue cheese stuffed burgers until they hit an internal temperature of 160 degrees.

If you are ever thinking about smoking any burger on a smoker, I suggest giving this bacon blue cheese burger a shot… it was delicious!
