Method

Barbecue Prep

Using a Weber Chimney Starter fill it with Steakhouse charcoal and light. Once lit, pour the evenly all over coal grate. Put the gourmet cooking grate in place then insert the cast iron griddle securely in the circular recess. Allow it to preheat.

Meat Prep

Divide the minced beef into 4 and using the Weber Burger Press shape your patties. In a dish combine the salt and pepper. Press the burgers into the dish coating the outside in a salt and pepper crust.

Cooking

Place onto the hot griddle, put the lid on and allow to cook for 3 minutes on each side. Before putting the lid back on add a slice of cheese to the top of each burger. Using a temperature probe ensure the core of the burgers has reached 70C. Remove and rest for 2 minutes while you prepare bun. For the doughnut French toast, melt butter over medium heat in a griddle. Whisk together cinnamon, eggs, milk, and vanilla and pour into a shallow container. Dip the sliced side only of the doughnuts in the egg mixture. Griddle the donuts egg side down until golden brown then remove. Build you burger using the garnishes and enjoy.
