  2. Five Best Steak Recipes for the Grill

    Steak is a meal you can eat year-round, but when the weather warms up & the grills come back out, steak becomes a more frequent choice. Grilling a good steak, without any fixings, is a fantastic choice, but we sometimes find ourselves wanting to add a little more. Here are some tips and recipes to take your steak meals to a new level.


    Bacon-Wrapped Steak

    This is one of our best steak recipes. Although bacon-wrapped steaks may sound common, using high-quality bacon that holds up well on the grill is key (hint, hint - Burgers' Smokehouse bacon). We also suggest adding just the right amount of herbs & butter for an extra savory eating experience.

    Perfecting the science of bbq smoking starts with:

    1. Quality of Meat
    2. Patience
    3. Smokehouse (perfecting time & temperature)
    4. Natural Wood for smoking


    Preparing BBQ Ribs here at the Smokehouse

    To start, we select fresh quality meats, in our opinion the best meats to smoke, and then dry rub them with our award-winning blend of spices and seasonings.  Before they reach the smokehouses, we allow them to age in a cool environment for maximum flavor from the rub recipe for several days.

    Next, we transfer them to our smokehouses (just larger than an at-home smoker), where they are smoked with ou

  7. Baby Back Ribs - Cooking Instructions Artisan Style baby back ribs searing method 

    Burgers' Smokehouse takes the time and cares to uphold a 90-year-old tradition of slow-smoking signature sauced baby back ribs. These pork ribs are first hand-coated with a secret Burgers family spice blend.

    Then, the ribs are allowed to rest in those spices for many days before being slow-smoked for hours to achieve the deep, rich flavor and naturally juicy, mouth-watering ribs. Unlike most baby back ribs for sale at grocery stores, Burgers' never uses liquid smoke and never adds water. They are smoked with real 100% hickory wood. There are absolutely no short-cuts.
