I came up with this burger after working in several different restaurants. I was tired of the same old stuff and decided to create a BBQ burger that got my juices going. The first bite I knew I had a winner on my hands. My friends and family enjoyed my new creation and still ask for it everytime we BBQ or just because they crave the unique flavor that it offers.
