If you like your BBQ sauce homemade and your burger with a slice of “Texas,” this recipe is for you!


  • 1 pound lean ground Certified Hereford Beef®
  • 1/2 cup beer
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

To prepare BBQ sauce, combine beer, brown sugar, ketchup, chipotle peppers and Worcestershire sauce in saucepan; bring to a boil. Simmer 8 to 10 minutes until sauce is thickened and set aside.

Lightly shape ground beef into four 1/2-inch thick patties. Place patties on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 10 minutes until an instant-read thermometer inserted horizontally into center registers 160°F, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, prepare Texas Toast according to package instructions.

For each sandwich, spread 1 tablespoon of BBQ sauce over one toast half. Top with burger, another tablespoon of sauce and any additional toppings you would like to add. Close sandwich and enjoy!
