Beer Can Burgers
These sound very good, and I will give two variants to try. This is a ‘filled’ burger as opposed to a ‘stuffed’ burger. Cooked on a grill and no flipping required. This is written for 2 burgers of each variant, just adjust the variant ingredients to make more or less of each. On my to cook list.

Ingredients
Cheddar & Jalapeno Filling (for 2 burgers)
Instructions
  1. Heat your grill to medium with either charcoal or gas. You will be cooking over indirect heat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the beef, Worcestershire sauce and garlic powder, divide into 4 half pound balls. Place a beer can on top of a ball and push down and form the beef around the can and just a bit up the side. Wrap two slices of bacon the burger. Twist the can to remove that, the burger should have a nice deep indentation in it. Repeat this for the remaining balls. Season each indentation and the rest of the burger with ample salt and pepper to taste.
  3. For 2 burgers, add cubed Cheddar and Jalapeno slices in each indentation.
  4. For the 2 burgers with Bell Pepper, add the bell pepper and onion in each indentation then top each with a slice of Provolone.
  5. Grill the burgers over indirect heat, and covered, until cooked through, 30 minutes should be a medium burger.
  6. To serve, place lettuce and tomato on the bottom bun, place a burger on top, top with the top bun.
Recipe Notes

Beef will cost about 200 Baht/kilo. Cheddar about 180 Baht for 2 cups cubed, Provolone about 45 Baht for 2 slices. For 4 servings, this is about $3.13 per serving. Not cheap but sounds really good for a once in a while cookout with friends and family.
