The B.A. Burger

The B.A. Burger


A simple and satisfying burger that will warm your soul on a cool spring evening at Camp.


  • 2 lbs Beef Burger
    • >>> If using lean wild game add one egg to help it bind and stick together. 
  • 2 1/2 Tablespoons cajon seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon lime juice
  • Few pinches of salt and pepper
  • 1 Yellow Onion
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, oil, or bacon grease
  • 5 Jalapeno's
  • 8 slices pepper jack cheese
  • Side fixings optional
    • Tomato
    • Avocado
    • Lemon Aioli of sorts


COAL PAN: Set at 3 notches from the top and adjust appropriately depending on coals or open flame.

    1. Heat up a cast iron pan with your butter or oil.
    • Bacon grease is a favorite.
    2. Slice onion and add to cast iron pan.
    • Watch your onions while you patty the burgers, stirring as needed.
    3. Begin Roasting 4 of your jalapeno's.
    • Roast till soft and blackened.
    • Once cooked, slice in half long ways, remove the seeds or leave them depending on your desired heat, and lastly remove the outside casing.
    • Set aside until your burgers are ready to be topped. See step 14.
    4. Mince 1 jalapeno with seeds and add to the burger.
    • If jalapeno isn't minced or well chopped it will cause the burger to break apart. 
    5. Combine the cajun seasoning, lime juice, and salt and pepper.
    • Add egg if using lean wild game.
    6. Hand mix for 5 minutes.
    • This will promote some protein extraction binding the burger and help keep the burger juicy. 
    7. *Important - Reference your burger buns before making your patties. 
    • Your burgers should have a larger diameter compared to your buns.
    • If using smaller burger buns you should be able to get 6 burgers out of 2lbs
    • If using standard size buns you should be able to get 4 burgers out of 2lbs. 

    8. Divide burger appropriately to make at least 4, 1/2 lb burgers.
    9. Hand patty the burgers. 
    10. When you have your coals or open flame ready start cooking your burgers.
    11. Cook till you are a few minutes to your preferred internal temp. 
    12. Add one slice pepper jack cheese.
    13. Add caramelized onion.
    14. Add 2 slices of roasted jalapeno.
    15. Top with another slice of pepper jack cheese.
    16. Enjoy.
