  • 2 teaspoons prepared mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper


  • 1 large egg
  • 1/3 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 6 hamburger buns

  6. Crumble beef over mixture and mix well.
  7. Shape into six patties.
  8. Heat grill on medium heat.
  9. Grill burgers, covered on medium heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until well done, basting with 1/2 cup barbeque sauce during the last 5 minutes.
  10. Serve on buns with toppings of your choice and reserved barbeque sauce.

Tip: Don’t press down on a hamburger patty while cooking. Pressing the patty squeezes all the juice out causing a dry burger.

Tip: To keep your burger moist when grilling, place a small ice cube in the middle of your patty. As it cooks, the ice cube melts and distributes moisture through the burger.
