    I prepared these delicious burgers tonight and we both loved them. I followed the recipe exactly and they were delicious. I used KC Masterpiece barbecue sauce which is our favorite. It gave the burgers that needed boost in flavor. Yummy. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor.
