The Black Burger

If you’re lucky enough to find great black hamburger buns, then you can take your all-black concept a step further by seasoning your meat to make it black, too!

Oh yeah, you got it right – I’m giving you my recipe, to make completely black burgers! 😎 (Obviously, if ever you can’t find black buns, this recipe is still a great way to enjoy a good burger 😉 )

For 6 servings

Ingredients :

  • 3 lb ground beef (½ lb per patty)
  • House of BBQ Experts Black Tiger (per burger is good)
  • Tomato, to taste (1 to 2 slices per burger is good)
  • Red cabbage, to taste
  • 6 black hamburger buns
  • 6 slices of cheese
  • 6 to 12 lettuce leaves (1 to 2 per burger)


  1. Preheat the grill to 400°F.
  2. In a bowl, mix the ground meat with the Black Tiger dry rub to season the meat and give it some color.
  3. Form 6 patties with the meat mixture. (To make beautiful, perfect and consistent patties, I suggest shaping them with the lid of the House of BBQ Experts Stuffer.)
  4. Sprinkle both sides of each patty with Black Tiger dry rub to achieve the black effect, then transfer to the grill’s direct cooking area. After 4 minutes, flip the patties then add a little Black Tiger dry rub on that side.
  5. Meanwhile, use a knife to slice the onion and tomatoes into rings, then the cabbage into strips. Set aside.
  6. When the patties are nicely grilled, transfer them to the indirect cooking zone and let them cook until they reach an internal temperature of at least 165°F to keep them juicy.
  7. Near the end (or at the end) of the cooking time, place 1 slice of cheese on each patty and let the cheese brown.
  8. Grill the hamburger buns for a few seconds to have them ready at the same time as the patties.
  9. Once everything is ready, take the food off the grill and start assembling.
  10. Place 1 cheesy patty on each bottom bun, then add the tomato slices, cabbage strips, lettuce leaves and onion rings on top. Finish off the burgers with their top bun.
  11. Serve and enjoy!


Happy grilling!
