  • Heath Riles BBQ Beef Rub

  • Beef patties
  • Sliced onion
  • Sliced tomato
  • Pickle chips
  • Sliced American cheese
  • Hamburger buns
  • Lettuce
  • Mayo


  1. Get your grill up to temperature of approximately 400º. Create a 2 zone fire.
  2. Flatten out your ground beef into patties and season one side with Heath Riles BBQ Beef Rub.
  3. Place your patties seasoned side down on the cool zone. Season the other side with Heath Riles BBQ Beef Rub. Cook for 10 minutes.
  4. After 10 minutes, flip your patties and place them on the hot zone of your grill for about 5 minutes.
  5. After 5 minutes, move the burgers over to your cool zone and baste both sides with Heath Riles BBQ Sweet BBQ Sauce. Let them go for about 3-4 minutes so the sauce can caramelize.
  6. Place sliced cheese of your choice on your burger and let it melt. Once the cheese has melted, remove the burgers from the grill.
  7. Assemble your burger however you’d like. We used pickles, onions, tomatoes, lettuce, mayo, and some Heath Riles BBQ Sweet BBQ Sauce drizzled over the top.
