  • 1 ½ pounds lean ground beef
  • 6 slices American cheese
  • 1 large onion (sliced)
  • 6 slices of bacon (cooked to crispy and drained on paper toweling)
  • 1 large tomato (sliced)
  • 6 hamburger buns
  • 3 tablespoons Tennessee Whiskey
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  1. Preheat and prepare the grill for high heat.
  2. In a medium size, bowl mixes together the whiskey, Worcestershire sauce, garlic salt, and liquid smoke.
  3. In a large bowl mix together the burger, and 3 tablespoons of the whiskey mixture. (Hands work best for this) Form the burger into six patties.
  4. Grill the burgers on high heat until browned and slightly charred on both sides. Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking to the desired doneness using a basting brush to coat the burgers with the rest of the whiskey sauce.
