The Big Max burger and its incredible sauce

By: JP

For 1 burger

If you get out a bit, you’ve probably already heard of/took a bite out of a McDonald’s Big Mac. Well, I found a way to recreate this burger at home, and on the grill nonetheless. 😉

In order for you to taste the difference and make everyone happy at home, I’m sharing my recipe with you, my Big Max burger recipe, which I named in honor of my brother.

Of course, the secret of the Big Mac is its sauce, so I made sure to create an ultimate version for the Big Max. 😎 (Seriously, it’s so good that you won’t believe that it doesn’t directly come from the golden arches. 😜)

Here we go!


For the Big Max:

  • Slices of bacon, to taste (optional)*
  • Ground beef, to taste
  • The House of BBQ Experts’ Booster flavor enhancer, to taste
  • 2 orange (or white, or marble) cheese slices
  • 2 hamburger buns (you only need 2 bottom buns and 1 top bun)
  • Lettuce, sliced ​​into strips, to taste
  • White onion, chopped, to taste

For the Big Max sauce:


For the Big Max:

  1. Preheat the grill to around 450°F, with a direct and an indirect cooking zone.
  2. Place the bacon slices in the indirect cooking zone and let them cook and become crispy without turning them prior to removing them from the grill (optional)*.
  3. Form 2 burger patties with the ground beef. (If you want really thin ones, you can even smash them with the House of BBQ Experts’ Smash Burger Press. 😉)
  4. Sprinkle some Booster flavor enhancer on both sides of each patty.
  5. Increase the temperature of the grill so that it heats to about 600°F.
  6. Place the patties on the grill’s grids, in the direct cooking zone, and let them sear and caramelize. Flip them over when they easily unstick of the grids.
  7. Meanwhile, prepare the Big Max sauce (see steps below).
  8. When the patties are well seared, transfer them to the indirect cooking zone and let them cook until they have an internal temperature of around 160°F.
  9. Cover the patties with a slice of cheese and let it melt on them.
  10. Sear the burger buns on both sides in the direct cooking zone. (Be careful, this is not the time to go get a beer, this step is very quick!)
  11. Once everything is ready, remove the ingredients from the grill.
  12. Crumble the bacon slices (optional)*.
  13. Assemble the Big Max by first spreading the sauce on each bun. After that, place a patty on a bottom bun, and then, sprinkle it with bacon (this is optional)*. Add some lettuce and chopped onion on top of everything, and repeat the process to create a 2nd layer to the burger. Finally, top the burger off with the top bread.
  14. Serve and enjoy this burger filled with happiness!

For the Big Max sauce:

  1. Put all the ingredients in a bowl and mix. Readjust the doses as needed.
  2. Serve and enjoy!

*You may be thinking, “Come on! There is no bacon in a Big Mac!” I know that, but if you don’t add any, you’re really missing out! Either way, the more bacon in something, the more delicious it is! 🥓

Happy grilling!
