The ultimate peanut butter burger

Well this morning I started my day Kayak fishing with a friend and while fishing I came up with the ideal of making the ultimate peanut butter burgers! These turned out excellent and I thought I would share the recipe with everyone! You wouldn't be-leave how peanut butter is actually pretty good on a burger! Let’s get grilling shall we!

Patties Ingredients:

  • 1 lbs Lean Ground Beef
  • 1 lbs Ground Turkey
  • 500 gram of Bacon
  • 3 clove garlic minced
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • 1/4 cup bread crums 
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 TBSP Fresh Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 TBSP Kosher Salt
  • 2 TBSP Dizzy Pig Cow Lick rub or Montreal steak seasoning
  • 1 TBSP Worchester sauce
  • 1 TBSP HP sauce
  • Optional 2 TBSP Bacon Fat (the grease saved from cooking Bacon)

Burger topping Ingredients:

  • 1 egg per patties
  • 4 slice of bacon per burger
  • 2 slice of sandwich ham per patties
  • President Choice Bacon flavored Mayo (found at the supper store)
  • Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Sauce (found at Costco)
  • Tomatoes slices
  • Onion rings
  • Peanut butter
  • Maple syrup
  • Slices of Cheddar Cheese
  • Fresh Lettuce


Step one ground the bacon in meat grinder or you can buy it already pre-grind-ed by butcher;

Now in a large mixing bowl mix all the burger patties ingredients above very well ensuring everything is well mixed together;

 In this pic you can see the bacon fat added

Added 1 egg for better bounding

Shape your burger patties and place on wax paper on a pan then cover with saran wrap and refrigerate for two hours;

I added a little bit of fresh pepper on top of them

Meanwhile make your pretzel buns from my recipe found here: Home-made-pretzel-buns

Now pre-heat BBQ and Grillgrates to 375 to 400 degrees;

Cook the burger patties halfway then flip and cook till internal temp reaches 160 degrees;

When halfway through the cook you can cook the onion rings on the grill and a few bacon slices and two slices of ham per patties;

Also in a small frying pan you want to cook an egg over easy;

In a microwave cook for approximately 20 seconds 5 TBSP of Peannut Butter and 1 tsp maple syrup till smooth then mix well.

Putting the Burger together:

Put a generous layer of the peanut butter on the bottom pretzel bun;
Place the patty on top;

Now place the slice of cheese, then the 2 slices of ham, the bacon and tope it all up with the lettuce and slice tomato and Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Sauce;

Add Cheese
 Add Ham
Add Bacon
 Add Lettuce
 Add Tomato
 Add a little pepper and salt
Add Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Sauce 

It’s now time to place the egg then onion rings;

 Add egg
Add Onion Rings

On the top bun put a generous layer of the bacon flavored mayo;

Finish it off with the top pretzel bun and enjoy!

Bonne appetite and Happy Grilling J

Habanero’s and Pineapple glaze Sole fillets

Well today I decided to grill some fish on the BBQ to grill something different. When debating which type of fish to go with I decided with sole fillets. For this one I went on a limb and decided to play with everyone taste buds. I decided to glaze them with Habanero and pineapple glaze. It actually turn out amazing! Everyone home loved it so I decided to share this recipe with everyone.


Fresh sole fillets
Dizzy Pigs Raging River Rub
Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Sauce (found at Costco)
Fresh Ground Black Peppers


1. Pre-heat your BBQ and Griddle (for this cook I will be using the Kettle-Q from the Little Griddle);

2.     Lightly oil the Griddle with Canola oil;

Don't forget to lightly oil the griddle.

3. Next season your sole fillets with Raging river Rub and black pepper on one side before placing on the griddle;

4. Half-way through the cook flip and season the other side;

 Time to flip them.
Seasoned the other side.

5. When the sole is almost cook start glazing them with the Roasted Pineapple & Habanero Sauce.

 Apply the sauce to the Sole.
 The sole is now ready.
Time to serve them :)

This one is this simple but extremely delicious!

Bonne Appetite and Happy Grilling! :)

Corn on the cob on the BBQ

Today I was shopping at a local farmers market and saw some fresh corn on the cobs. So I decided to get some to grill on the BBQ. Nothing better than fresh corn on the cob on the BBQ. These are actually quite easy to grill and the results are amazing.


To grill these you first have to soak your corn in the cob with its husk still on in water for about one hour! This lets it require its necessary moisture it needs to grill perfectly;

Meanwhile you want to prep your BBQ and pre-heat it to a temp of 325 to 350 degrees;

Now that the corn on the cob has been soaking for one hour it’s time to place them on the BBQ and you want to cook them for approximately 25 minutes and you want to turn them one quarter turn every 5 minutes;

Turn them 1/4 turn every 5 minutes or so

When they have been grilling for about 20 minutes cut a little slit in one of the husk to check the corn for readiness if ready remove from grill (until kernels are tender when pierce with a knife);

Almost ready to take off the grill
 now ready and time to do the cut to ensure they are fully cook
Cut a slit in the corn husk with knife to ensure the corn inside is tender

Now you want to cut the corn the upset end of the hairy end approximately up 1 inch. Then grab the corn from the hairy end and carefully shake the corn out of the husk. They are now ready to serve them the way you prefer.

 cut opposite end from the hairy end
 Grab from the hairy end and shake out

I personally like to coat them with a light coating of butter, with a sprinkle of salt, smoked paprika and fresh grind black pepper.

Also a good friend of mine Chef Dean from a Winter Grilling Group I belong suggested this Mexican style topping which will definitely make your pallet dance!

  • Brush them with Mayo;
  • Then sprinkle them with Chili powder, Cumin, Paprika, Cayenne Powder and Parm;
  • Now squeeze some fresh Lime Juice after topping.
Thanks Dean for sharing this osom Mexican topping for corn! 

Bonne appetite and happy grilling!
