  1. Preheat a grill for medium heat. When hot, lightly oil the grate.
  2. In a medium bowl, lightly mix together the ground beef, barbeque sauce and garlic powder. Separate into 4 portions and flatten into patties.
  3. Grill the burgers for about 8 minutes per side, or until well done. Place a slice of cheese on top of each burger and allow it to melt for a minute. Press chopped cilantro into the melted cheese on each burger. Serve burgers on toasted sourdough bread topped with lettuce and tomato. Feel free to use other condiments to your liking.

I typically try and follow the recipe exactly but I'll admit that the reviews scared me a bit too much on this one to do that. I went ahead and measured out a cup of barbecue sauce but only added a little bit at a time until I had the perfect consistency. I ended up using right at 3/4 cup and it was perfect. We really enjoyed these burgers. Instead of plain Monterey Jack, I kicked it up a notch with Pepper Jack. Even though I think plain ole tomatoes would have been perfect, hubby doesn't like them so I just added a couple tablespoons of salsa to each burger instead. I think the key to this recipe is to use your absolute favorite bbq sauce and not just any that are on special that week. My sauce of choice is Kansas City's own Gates. These were delish!



1 cup of barbeque sauce was way too much - it made something more akin to sloppy joe's than hamburgers. The "burgers" crumbled and fell apart from the excess liquid. Due to the weather, I cooked them on the stovetop instead of a grill so perhaps that made a difference, but I'd suggest cutting the bbq sauce at least in half.



The sloppy joes tasted good, but for burgers I would also recommend only 1/2 c. barbecue sauce.
