"I created this recipe while trying to recreate the best burger I had ever tasted at a restaurant in the Great Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. My family and I think these burgers are better! They are packed with flavor!"

Just a simple request for when people make suggestions for substitutions--please include amounts! I made these burgers tonight, and like one of the other reviewers, I had no chipotle peppers, but I did have the spice available. Unfortunately, I had no idea how much to substitute for the chipotle pepper, and ended up adding waaaaayyy too much spice to my burgers. They were blazing hot! I used 1 teaspoon of spice to 1 1/4 pound of ground sirloin (for four servings). So if anyone suggests a substitution, please also suggest a quantity to use. I know I would really appreciate the help, and maybe others would, too. I enjoyed the burgers, and I will give them another shot with either real chipotles or lower the amount of spice I use.

We LOVE this recipe and have even used it with ground turkey. I didn't follow the recipe exactly as I didn't have chipotle sauce or peppers. And, after the first time, I also decreased the liquid smoke to 1 tsp because it seemed to be a little strong. Amazing!

Yummy! Very good grilled burger. I used garlic powder instead of the minced garlic and did half and half gound beef and ground turkey. I also used pepper jack cheese. I will use this recipe again.
