Colossal Campfire Burger cooked over a fire while camping

Colossal Two-Pound Campfire Burger

Ingredients:

  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • Kosher sea salt
  • Garlic pepper seasoning
  • Hamburger toppings like lettuce, tomatoes, onions, mayo, etc…


Directions

  • Form ground beef into two 1 pound patties
  • Season each patty with sea salt and garlic pepper seasoning; set aside
  • If you haven’t already done so, get your campfire going
  • Use a BBQ campfire grill grate for cooking the burgers; wrap grill grates in foil to prevent flareups if desired.
  • Place your burgers on the cooking surface
  • Create an aluminum foil ‘tent’ over top of the burgers to aid in even cooking
  • Once you see juice beginning to come out of the top of the burgers, it’s time to flip them
  • Check burgers with a thermometer, place cheese on the burgers once they near the finishing temp for your preference.
  • Cook your burgers all the way through, then pull them off the grill grate.
  • Place your burgers on the large sweet roll and top with toppings
  • Cut and serve!

Who knew camping could be so much fun and creating the ultimate campfire burger would feed the entire crew! Feeds up to 8 people – calculating 1/4 pound of burger per person.
