another burger from Spike and Good Stuff. The Coletti’s smokehouse burger, a 1st place winner at
the 2009 Rachael Ray Burger Bash. For our purpose a turkey burger on Spike’s favorite potato bun topped with cheddar, thick bacon smokehouse bbq sauce and homemade Vidalia Onion Petals…that’s right. Vidalia Onion Petals. Messed up the kitchen a little with the frying mess but super tasty. The sauce was made from doctored bottled sauce. I don’t know if I would do that again because there isn’t as much control that way unless you really know the bottled sauce to begin with. It is an interesting way to boost flavors though.
Coletti’s smokehouse bbq sauce
2 chipotle peppers and sauce diced (I keep my open cans in a flattened ziploc in the freezer and they are super easy to get a fine dice on this way)
1 cup sweet bottled bbq sauce
1/2 cup ketchup (I really like Heinz best)
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
a soup spoon of Molasses
Combine all ingrediants and puree with your immersion blender if you have one. If not, I’d take care to mash the chipotles really well and combine all ingredients w/ a spoon. Enjoy!
