Step 1:

Get your Gozney Roccbox temperature up to 350°C/660°F using gas or wood. Cook up roughly 4 slices of bacon in a skillet pan in the Roccbox. Keep the grease in the pan and remove the bacon.  

Step 2:

Divide your ground beef into 4 x 4oz beef patties. 

Step 3:

Place the skillet back in the oven and add in your beef patties. Using a sheet of wax paper and a paper plate or a baking sheet covered with cold water firmly pressed down on your beef patties until evenly flat. Repeat the steps until all patties are formed. 

Step 4:

Top your patties with beef rub. Add the sliced mushrooms to the pan and cook for roughly 2-3 minutes per side or until the internal desired temperature is reached. 

Step 5:

 Top the beef patties with your favorite kind of cheese. Rasheed’s tip: Coat the outside with a little bit of butter and some leftover bacon fat to achieve that crunchy flavorful exterior.

Step 6:

Toast your brioche buns in the oven. Next up it's time to build your burger. Add your mushrooms to the bun. 

Step 7:

Top with sliced tomato and onions. You can caramelize or pickle your onions if you prefer. 

Step 8:

Add your beef patty and bacon. Cut on the diagonal and enjoy.
