Ingredients
2 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 small shallot, finely chopped
2 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 teaspoon Neely's Dry Rub seasoning
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Butter
6 brioche buns
6 slices pepper jack cheese
12 slices smoked apple wood bacon, fried crisp
1/2 cup Neely's "Secret Sauce", recipe follows
1 pint cole slaw (recommended: Neely's Cole Slaw)
2 beef steak tomatoes, sliced
Directions
Preheat your grill to medium-high heat.

In a large mixing bowl, break up the meat with your hands. Add the chopped shallot, garlic, Neely's Dry Rub, Worcestershire sauce, and salt and pepper, to taste. Mix with a wooden spoon until thoroughly incorporated. Using your hands, divide the meat into 6 equal balls. Flatten them into patties and use your thumb to create an indent in the center of each burger. Cook's Note: This indent will help the burgers from puffing up while you grill them.

Grill the burgers, uncovered, for 3 minutes on the first side. Flip and continue cooking for another 3 minutes for medium-rare, and 4 minutes for medium. Remove from grill and immediately top with the cheese.

Butter the buns and place on the grill. Toast for about 1 minute and remove from grill.

Build your burgers by topping with the bacon, Secret Sauce, coleslaw, and tomatoes. Add onion rings if desired.

Neely's Secret Sauce:

1/3 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons mayonnaise
2 tablespoons buttermilk
2 tablespoons BBQ sauce (recommended: Neely's BBQ sauce)
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
Mix all the ingredients together in s medium bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until serving, allowing the flavors to develop. Can be made a day ahead.
