Sunny days and fresh, warm air means summer and grilling season is in effect. Cooking on a grill has an almost therapeutic effect for me.There’s something about the smell and hand-on approach to it. Plus the charred flavor is unique only to grilled foods.

Sweet, tangy and savory are flavor pallets that will delight the senses. The unique pairing of ingredients all work together to create an epic burger worthy of any summer party. To add some extra fun make your own barbecue sauce as well. I used KC Masterpiece’s BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub Sweet Honey BBQ flavor. Made from a perfect blend of rich tomato sauce, molasses and spices, use it to add authentic taste to any recipe.

Mix with any liquid to create a marinade or sauce, such as bourbon, beer, soda or juice. I used beer, well because cooking with beer is awesome. Try it with different beers to change the flavor profile, for this recipe I used a wheat beer.  Plus most varieties are gluten free if you prefer your burger protein style.
