Smoky Joe's Big, Spicy Burgers


1/2 15-oz can barbecue sloppy joe sauce
1/2 4-oz can sliced or chopped jalapeños, drained
1 3/4 lb extra-lean ground beef
1 egg
1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
6 Hamburger Buns

  1. Fire up your grill to medium.
  2. Pour 1/4 can of sloppy joe sauce into a big bowl
  3. Mix in the jalapeños, egg and worcestershire sauce
  4. Add the beef and mix some more
  5. Squish the mean into 6 burgers, each no more than 3/4 thick. Slap 'em on the grill and close the lid (with the vents open)
  6. Grill until they're done the way you like: 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium (160 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer) or 7 to 8 minutes per side for well-done (170 degrees F).
  7. Toast the buns on the grill
  8. Slather with the remaining 1/4 can sloppy joe sauce. 


I've round off all can sizes to the nearest ounce. So don't panic if a recipe calls for a 15-oz can but you can only find a 14 1/2 ouncer. Just grab that closest available size.
