Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on paper towels.

  • Mix ground sirloin, whiskey, Worcestershire sauce, cola, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, and pepper in a bowl until just combined. Shape meat mixture into 8 evenly sized, 1-inch thick patties. Make an indentation in the center of each patty with your thumb.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate.

  • Arrange patties indented-side up on preheated grill. Cook burgers until hot and slightly pink in the center, 3 to 5 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 140 degrees F (60 degrees C). Place a slice of Cheddar cheese on each burger for the last minute of cooking and top with 2 slices bacon. Place burgers on buns.

Cook's Notes:

To add some extra Southern fun, fry up some green tomatoes and place a slice between the patty and the bun!

Tips

Provide condiments like ketchup, mustard, mayo, onions, lettuce, tomato, etc., so that people may dress their burgers as they please.

Very good! I halved the recipe and could not find smoked cheddar so I used regular. Very moist and juicy and you could really taste all of the added flavors. I would make these again! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More

Burgers came out great. Good flavor and real juicy. At first i was concerned the patties would fall though the grates. I put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes before grilling to firm them up. I 'll be making these for my. next family cookout. Read More

I wasn't sure what to expect from these burgers and frankly we were shocked at how good they were! I can honestly say they were the best burgers I've ever made. Seriously. I cut the recipe in half for the two of us and made eight mini burgers. I used Canadian rye whiskey instead of bourbon because that's what I had that being the only change I made. What Canadian isn't craving a good burger in February? These satisfied the craving alright! Read More

I also 1/2'd the recipe because I didn't have 2# of burger. Revisions: I added about an 1/8th of a cup of Panko bread crumbs and about a Tablespoon of brown sugar instead of Coke. YUM! Will definitely save this recipie and use it again. Read More
