If you want an eating challenge for this year, then look no further than this BBQ chili burger recipe.
There’s no getting around it: This burger is a beast.
Built upon a traditional cheese burger, this monster packs in homemade chili and oven cooked onion rings to create a tower of meat.
A few quick tips:
I’ve used hickory as my hardwood for this recipe. Hickory’s a deep and strong flavored wood, but it matches perfectly with a lot of different cuts of beef, which makes it perfect for this chili. If you would prefer a different wood then oak and mesquite are quite similar in flavor and strength.
Everyone has their own go-to homemade chili recipe, so don’t worry if yours deviates from the one I’ve laid out here. Just so long as it contains beef, and isn’t overpowered with spice.
