Smoked Burgers

with Smoked Steak & Burger Rub


There’s nothing like a smoked burger cooked on a pellet smoker. These burgers are juicy and tender, and the smoke adds such delicious flavors to the meat.



  • 2 lbs. of Ground Beef of Ground Chuck 80/20

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 cup Panko Bread Crumbs

  • 3 tsp of Indigo Lake’s Smoked Steak & Burger Rub

Optional Topping: Cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion. Cherry Bourbon or Memphis Inspiration BBQ Sauce



  • Pre-heat your smoker to 225˚ using your favorite wood flavor

  • Hand mix eggs, bread crumbs and seasoning in a bowl

  • Form into patties 3/4 inch thick, just a little wider than the buns*

  • Smoke the patties to an internal temperature of 165˚ - 45-50 minutes

  • Turn up the grill to 425˚ and quickly sear each side of the burger to create a char, pay attention, this happens quick

  • Top with your choice of the suggested optional topping



*Smoked Burgers will NOT shrink like grilled burgers do. Make the patties slightly larger than the buns.
