To make the burger sauce, combine the mayonnaise, ketchup and mustard in a large bowl, whisking well to combine. Set aside.

For the smoked butter, gently melt the butter over a low heat until, then remove from the heat and add the liquid smoke, whisking well to combine. Set aside and keep in a liquid state.

To cook the burgers, light the coals on the Fusion BBQ and once glowing white, lightly season both sides of each patty with salt and place on the grill, flipping the burgers every 20 seconds until the core temperature reads 65C on a thermometer probe. Remove and place on a cooling rack placed over a tray. Brush each patty with a teaspoon of smoked butter and place a slice of cheese on each patty.

In the meantime, halve the brioche buns and lightly toast on the grill and brush with smoked butter. Spread two teaspoons of burger sauce on each bun’s top half and place the patty on each bun’s bottom half.

Top the patty with lettuce, onion, tomato and gherkin slices. Top with the top bun and serve.

Best gift ever!

My family knows how much I adore having loved ones around and cooking up a storm - so they know just what to get me when I was given the 4K! So sleek and intricately designed, the quality is ridiculously good.

Dad absolutely loves his new 4K

After doing my research I decided to buy the 4K as Dad’s fiftieth present. Let’s just say he is truly in love. I can only speak from my experience, but the quality of food created from this barbeque is like no other.
