The big, bold burger

Tis the season for the burger! Nothing says summer like a juicy burger hot off the grill. With a smokey sauce, crisp refreshing apple and rich apple wood smoked cheddar, this burger is a taste experience like no other!

Our secret ingredient that takes this burger from average to BOLD is Neal Brothers smokey BBQ sauce. This sauce not only adds flavour, but makes for a super moist patty.

Pre-heat your grill to med-high setting. Brush the grill rack lightly with oil. Grill burgers about 6-8 minutes each side, until completely cooked through. In the last minute of cooking time, place a slice of apple-wood smoked cheddar on each patty to melt.

To assemble, place a handful of arugula on the bottom of each bun, place patty on top, 2 slices of apple and a dollop of bold smokey BBQ sauce. Bite in!
