Grilled Big Mac

This is my take on the McDonald’s Big Mac. Grilled, of course. This is one mighty fine burger. You might have to do ‘the hunch’ because it’s gonna drip on ya. And ya might have to press down a bit on it because it’s a tall burger. We’re not messing around here, this is the classic Big Mac, with a wonderful twist.Grilled Big MacI’m not a big fan of any burger that isn’t cooked over fire, so these burgers have that Big Mac taste along with that great grill flavor. They’re big, messy, and delicious! I also make grilled Big Mac sliders and slider Big Mac hoagies.
