The burgers were moist and had a nice flavor but next time I will probably only use half the amount of liquid smoke. It seemed a little over powering but maybe it's because I have not used it in very many recipes. Thanks...it was a nice change from the regular grilled burgers. Read More

Added about 1 tble BBQ sauce. Used only 1/2 tble of liquid smoke and only a 1/2 tea garlic powder. Also I take the burgers out of the refrigerator about a half hour before grilling. Read More

The recipe is simple and made my burgers turn out juicy and delicious. I would an egg to make to burgers stick better, but overall it was fantastic. Read More

The best hamburgers ever! Sometimes I add 1/2 tsp of Montreal Steak seasoning to add some zip. But I got rave reviews from family on this one. Thanks for the recipe. Read More

These were soooo good. I only used a 1/2 tablespoon of liquid smoke, and I'm glad I did because I think it would've been overpowering otherwise. I also used 1 clove fresh garlic instead of powder. Read More

Definitely lives up to it's name! These are some of the best burgers we've tried on this site to date. We loved the smoky BBQ taste the liquid smoke gave these. I used the whole tablespoon and it wasn't overpowering. If you don't like liquid smoke this isn't your burger. There's no need to rub with oil or seasoned salt. We used 85/15 burger meat. UPDATE: We've had so many requests for this recipe that we've even had to scale these up to 48 for our own July 4th party and bring these to other people's BBQ's instead of the regularly requested pasta or potato salad!!!

These burgers were very easy, and VERY tasty! Didn't have garlic powder, so I used onion powder. Also, I mixed in the oil and seasoned salt with the meat rather than coating the outside of the patty. I topped mine with a slice of provolone cheese before taking off the grill. YUMMY! Read More

I had 4lbs of burger, and found this recipe appealing as well as "Juiciest Hamburgers Ever" by Jane. I doubled this one and combined it with the other recipe which called for 2 lbs of hamburger. Excellent combo. Read More

These burgers were a hit! I broiled them in my oven but it tasted like I grilled them outdoors! Read More

Great recipe for hamburgers. I grilled these on an indoor grill. It gave it a very smoky/bbq-ish flavor. Nice juicy burger. I will make these again next burger night. Read More
