The Smoke Eater Gourmet "Firehouse Burger"

Introducing the Smoke Eater "Firehouse" Burger from, Smoke Eater Gourmet Meats!

This burger was served with home made bacon relish on a potato bun served with spicy french fries & paired with Smoke Eater "First Due Red" Pinotage!

The quality & flavor of these Smoke Eater Gourmet burgers is a cut above the rest & the bacon relish is the icing on this cake! Or, the icing on the burger.


- Smoke Eater Gourmet "Firehouse" Burgers

- 1 cup Mayonnaise

- 1 cup Ketchup

- 1 tbsp Dijon Mustard

- 1/2 cup crisp bacon crumbles

- 1/2 tsp chipotle powder

- 1 tsp Nashville Heat Sweet Smoked Chipotle Sauce (Or, similar)

- 1/4 cup of relish

- 1 red onion chopped

- 1 med tomato chopped

- 2 tbsps olive oil

- 1 tbsp butter

- Sea salt & pepper


1- In a pan fry 1/2 lb of bacon until crisp, then allow to drain on a plate with paper towel.

2- Once the bacon is cooled and drained, crumble it into small pieces & set aside.

3- In the same pan, with most of the bacon drippings drained, saute the red onion & the tomato in the olive oil & butter until the onions are golden brown.

4- In a bowl combine the mayo, mustard, ketchup, bacon crumbles, chipotle powder, relish, S&P and the

red onion/tomato saute, mixing all together well.

5- Grill the burgers to your liking (I prefer medium rare for the best flavor at 135 degrees F), melting your favorite cheese on top (I like plain old fashioned American Cheese) & place on your favorite bun.

6- Finally, drip as much bacon relish on the burger as you like along with half sour pickles & serve with fries paired with Smoke Eater "First Due Red" Pinotage (Or, a thick vanilla milk shake, if you prefer!)
