Spicy Jalapeno Bacon Pit Boss Burgers Recipe

  • Author: Alexandra
  • Total Time: 1 hour


This smoked burger recipe combines all of the best flavors of a traditional hamburger with the freshness of jalapenos, a kick from hot sauce, and a salty crunch from bacon.


Units Scale
  • 2 pounds 80/20 ground chuck (ground beef)
  • 4 Slices Raw Bacon
  • 4 Pepper Jack Cheese, Sliced
  • 1/2 cup Prepared Barbecue Sauce
  • 2 Jalapeno Peppers, Thinly Sliced
  • 1/2 cup Olive Oil
  • 4 Onion Burger Buns
  • 1 Onion, Crispy
  • 1/4 cup Pit Boss bold burger seasoning


  1. Preheat your Pit Boss grill to 350°F (medium-high for gas grills).
  2. Make your meat patty by mixing the ground beef and the burger seasoning.
  3. Form the burger patties (you can use a Pit Boss Burger Press if you have one to make this easier).
  4. Get your grill basket and place jalapenos in it. Drizzle the jalapenos with olive oil.
  5. Place your grill basket on the grill and flip it occasionally until you see the peppers are cooked through (they will appear soft and browned on the outside).
  6. Remove the vegetables from the basket and place them to the side.
  7. Place the bacon in the basket and cook for about 5 to 7 minutes until crunchy. While cooking the bacon, you can place the burger patties on the grill, and allow them to sear on each side for 5 – 10 minutes.
  8. At this point, the internal temperature of the patties should reach 135°F – 140°F. If not, leave them for a bit longer until they get to this temperature.
  9. Top the burgers with pepper jack cheese, close the grill’s lid, and turn off the heat. The burgers will continue to cook at or above 140°F, and the cheese will melt.
  10. Remove the burgers after 12 minutes and assemble your burgers: place the meat patties on the buns, and add the bacon, jalapenos, onions, and barbecue sauce.
