Award Winning Gourmet Hamburger Recipes from The Build a Better Burger Recipe Contest

Award Winning Gourmet Hamburger Recipes

When it comes to cookouts, the burger is king. According to the Hearth, Patio, and Barbecue Association, burgers are the star of outdoor grilling, appearing at 82% of all cookouts and outdoor parties. (Grilled steak, chicken, and hot dogs follow burgers in descending order of popularity.)

You can find out more about cooking foods other than hamburgers on your grill, smoker, or fire pit in our helpful article, Summertime, Where the Grilling (and Outdoor Cooking) is Easy.

Although the most popular holidays for barbecuing are July 4th, Memorial Day, and Labor Day, 58% of those who own a BBQ grill choose to cook outdoors year round (a statistic I’m glad to be a part of), so you know there’s a whole lot of grilling going on.

But whenever you grill, especially for a holiday, party, or family gathering, you want the burgers you cook to be special, memorable, and delicious.

Below are 18 recipes for a wide variety of gourmet burgers from the Grand Prize Winners of The Build a Better Burger Recipe Contest that will help you do just that. (The judge of a gourmet burger cooking contest…now there’s a delicious job!)
