"This BBQ recipe is jammed packed full of flavors that bring all kinds of wonderful sensations for your taste buds. Ok, this description may sound over the top, but one mouthful and you will know this is an over the top kind of burger. The secret is in the bacon, spice, turkey or chicken stuffing, sauce and of course, the secret cheese compartment. Rather than slapping a slice of cheese over the burger, I actually pat down the cheese in the middle and layer more of the burger mix over the cheese, essentially having the cheese melt in the middle while trying to seap out but locking the flavor and juices inside. Yum!"

A long overdue review for this awesome Cheesy Melt Burger, the hit at one of our August back yard barbecues. I have to agree with Bergy our Queen of the burgers - Cheesy BBQ Melt Burgers are great! I too had to sub both the VE spice and the Raspberry Habanero sauce, both subs worked well for me. Pating that cheese in the the middle and adding that layer of burger mix put this burger over the top. Had me wondering - why did I not think of that! Thank you for sharing your recipe and your video.

5 star for sure - this is a really great burger. Will go into my top ten. I had to sub two ingredients. I compared Webber Burger spice with VE, very similar. I couldn't find any raspberry Habaneero so subbed Diana's Honey Garlic and added 1 teaspoon Ogopogo Butt Burner sauce. It worked. I cut the recipe in half with no problem. This is a special burger and will be made over and over again. Thanks Wayne
