Smoked squealers

20 oz chuck roast
8 strips of bacon
Mellow pit sauce or Stubb's Original
4 large, fluffy hamburger buns
black pepper
Preheat a smoker. Carve the beef into 1/2 inch cubes. Grind the cubes in a food processor into a consistency suitable for forming patties. 5 pulses at 2 second intervals should achieve the desired texture. Do not over-process the meat.

Since the burger meat is freshly ground, there's no need to incinerate it - as there is little threat from e-coli, salmonella, etc. I prefer a medium to medium-well burger.

Season the ground chuck - aggressively - with salt and pepper. Divide the meat into 4 even patties. Wrap 2 strips of bacon around each burger - in criss-cross fashion.

Smoke the burgers at 220 degrees F to your preference, but make sure that the fat from the bacon has rendered and the bacon is well-done. No need to flip the burgers. Remove the burgers, test for seasoning and load them into buns, slathering them with a self-determined amount of BBQ sauce.
