If you like a big juicy burger
then this recipe is for you!
They just don't get any better.
This is from my Colossal burger
line and its not only awesome to
eat its down right fun to make.
Get the kids involved, it will
be a new family fun event!
Mix the ground
beef together with the
Worcestershire sauce thoroughly.
Add in 1 tbsp chili powder and 1
tbsp chopped onion with 1 to 2
tsp pepper. In a
medium mixing bowl beat 1 egg.
Pour the beaten egg over the
meat and mix it all into the
Once the meat has been
thoroughly mixed, form 8 patties
roughly 6 to 6 1/2 inches in
diameter. Each burger requires 2
patties. One for the bottom and
one for the top.
Now we need to heat up the pizza
toppings so they are fully
cooked when the burger is done.
In a large skillet melt a couple
pats of butter. Slice the
remaining sweet onion and add it
to the skillet. Slice up and
coarsely chop 1/2 green bell
pepper and add it to the
skillet. Next add in the bacon
bits and the Canadian bacon.
Make sure the Canadian bacon
stays on top the onions. We are
sautéing the onions and pepper
and heating up the Canadian
bacon. Once the onions soften
and become translucent remove it
all from the heat and transfer
it to a plate.
Now add the pepperoni to the
skillet and flash cook it on
high. This means quickly heat it
to get the grease out. Avoid
over cooking it. This usually
takes a minute. Remove from heat
and soak up the grease with a
paper towel. No greasy pepperoni
in these burger. Oh hell no!
Wipe out the skillet so its
clean. Put it back on the burner
and add the 4 or in my case 3,
pineapple slices. Pour some
pineapple juice from the can
over them so they pan fry in
their own juice. This will keep
them moist. Once they are hot,
remove them from the heat and
place them on the plate with the
Now its time to Rock this
Lay a patty down on a cookie
sheet or wax paper. Spoon on a
couple spoons of pizza sauce.
Spread it in a the center of the
patty outward leaving a 1/2 inch
boarder. This is to allow for
the top patty to stick to the
bottom patty when we seal in all
this good stuff. Now add 2
slices of Mozzarella, 2 slices
of Canadian bacon and 1/4 the
onions and peppers. Next add 4
slices of pepperoni and some
olives. Top all this off with 1
pineapple ring, 2 more slices of
Mozzarella and 2 to 3 more
spoons of sauce. Slowly lower
the roof on to the King Dome!
This would be the top patty... A
little bad Seattle humor there.
Once the top patty is in place
press the edges of the top patty
into the edges of the lower
patty. This will seal in all the
pizza toppings. Works your way
around the burger making sure
the two patties become one.
Don't leave any holes. You have
just built one bad MAMBA-JAMBA
of a burger! Follow these steps
for the next 3 burgers.
Once all 4 burgers are formed
sprinkle some Mad Hunky Meat rub
on them. Put how ever much rub
on as you desire. We are
building layers of flavor.
Place the burgers in a smoker
pre-heated to 225 degrees. We
don't grill these works of art!
We slow cook them allowing smoke
to penetrate deep into the meat
and to allow the inside contents
to meld together in perfect
harmony! No I'm not crazy... I
just know how to Rock the hell
out of food.
Once you cook these you will see
what I mean. As your high
five-in your spouse and doing
the damn tasty food "happy
Hey I like to make it fun! Ok,
onward with the cook. So we have
the burgers in the cooker at
225. Let them slow smoke for
about 2 hours. You wont need to
flip them. They will darken up
nice and don't worry if you see
some cheese and sauce
coming out. A bit of pressure
builds up inside as the burger
meat shrinks a bit.
When you check them for temp try
and use a thermometer small in
diameter so you don't leave a
big hole. Try and check a leaker
first. This is one that has
already let some pressure out of
When they reach 145 degrees give
them a mopping of your favorite
BBQ sauce. In this case I used
my Cherry Dr. pepper sauce and
it was a nice touch with these
Pull the burgers off the smoker
when the internal temp reaches
155 to 160 degrees. The cheese
inside should be good and
melted. Let them stand and cool
a bit because you don't want
your kids biting into these and
getting burned by hot cheese and
That's it! Once you have tried
these email me and send me pics.
I'd like to post some on this
page because folks have been
telling me how much fun they
have making the colossal
burgers. It would be cool to
post some pics.
