Fire Pit Burgers

Fire Pit Burgers

These fire pit burgers are definitely not complicated, and they are a bit messy thanks to plenty of chipotle mayonnaise, which brings just enough smoky heat to make for bite-after-bite of deliciousness.

  • 1 pound ground beef I prefer 85/15 mix
  • 3 hamburger buns
  • Chipotle mayonnaise make your own by combining mayonnaise and chopped chipotles in adobo sauce
  • Green leaf lettuce
  • 3 slices pepper Jack cheese
  • 6 slices bacon cooked until just starting to get crispy
  • 1 tomato sliced
  • 6 slices red onion I like to soak my onions in cold water for 10 minutes before draining and adding to the burgers to mellow them out a little bit.


  • Form beef into 3 equally-sized patties. Cook as desired. I prefer to grill mine or cook them on a griddle.
  • Toast the buns as desired.
  • Slather the buns with the chipotle mayonnaise. Don't be shy with it.
  • Add the lettuce to the buns. I like to put my lettuce under the patties. It helps keep the bottom bun from getting soggy.
  • Top patties with cheese and add to buns.
  • Add the bacon, tomato and onion and serve.
