For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

The Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ is pretty special, in that it runs on gas and on charcoal. So you can get that lovely smokey flavour, without any of the effort that usually goes into starting a charcoal BBQ.

Step 2

Mix the minced beef, remaining onions, garlic, salt pepper, hot sauce and egg together until it’s all combined thoroughly.
