Last month Chef Tom of All Things Barbecue was invited to the Food Network & Cooking Channel’s South Beach Wine & Food Festival in Miami to cook in both the Burger Bash and Beachside BBQ events. Today we share his Bacon Jam Smash Burger recipe, which was cooked for a crowd of 4000 at the Burger Bash! It’s a simple burger with HUGE flavor, and the Bacon Jam, which is the star of the show, is not only good on burgers, but so much more! Make sure to bookmark this recipe!
The only thing that can make the classic black and blue burger better is the addition of bacon, so that’s what we did.
Pitmaster Josh Cary and Chef Tom Jackson talk about the 1904 Saint Louis World’s Fair and why it is the center of so many food creation myths and Tom cooks up a delicious Beer Can Bacon Burger with beer braised onions and jalapeños.
Pitmaster Josh Cary and Chef Tom Jackson cover the history of the great Arthur Valentine and his Valentine Manufacturing Co. which manufactured portable diner buildings in the middle of the last century. Chef Tom then cooks up an amazing diner burger on a flat top griddle.
