You will never be the same after trying these blue cheese smoked brisket burgers. Smoky blue-cheese filled heaven on a bun topped with crispy onion straws. Perfect for the days you are feeling extra carnivorous!
Our friends at Camp Chef came up last week and we smoked up a meeaaannn brisket. As if the brisket wasn’t amazing enough on it’s own (it was) we had to take it to the next level and add it to a blue cheese stuffed burger. Oh man, you guys. I can’t even begin to tell you how good it was. First of all, we used a sirloin ground beef for the burger patties. Then we stuffed the patties with tangy blue cheese, grilled them, and melted some creamy Havarti cheese over the top. All that, as it is, would be an amazing burger but we didn’t stop there. Oh, no. We added some homemade crispy onion straws and of course, a nice little helping of brisket. Smothered all that in some BBQ sauce and topped it off with a potato bun (what else? I am from Idaho after all 🙂 )
I never knew that brisket on a burger could be so delicious. In the picture of the smoked brisket burgers above we used nice, thick slices of smoked brisket but you can slice them much thinner for easier eating. If you aren’t familiar with smoked brisket or if you have been wanting to learn how to smoke brisket but have been too intimidated to try, click HERE and we will help you through it all. Don’t be scared.. it is actually VERY easy. Give it a try! You will be surprised how easy it is!
Note: when we made this brisket for Facebook LIVE with Camp Chef we had a lot of people asking why the inside of the brisket looked done but the outer part of it looks pink and “not done”… this is actually how brisket is supposed to look 🙂 The outer pink part is called the “Smoke ring” and the deeper that pink ring is, the better. We were actually able to get a pretty impressive smoke ring with this brisket and oh man, it was delicious. The smoke ring is completely cooked through and safe to eat. In fact, it is the BEST part!
