BBQ Hamburger
This is a 4th generation secret BBQ hamburger recipe. I usually make it in 3-pound batches but have made it in 12-pound batches with the same results, and it can be frozen with the same flavor. Be aware of notes at the end. This recipe is old and bottle contents have changed. Hope this will work well for your needs. Our family loves it and often takes containers to go.

Recipe Notes

NOTES: When this recipe was originally made, ketchup only came in 12-ounce bottles. Brooks ketchup is a spicy blend and I can only find it online, so use what you have available. The BBQ sauce available at the time was Open Pit, so we used half of a 24-ounce bottle. Very good if made the day before. I have tried the current, off-the-shelf brand of spicy ketchup and it is not the same as Brooks brand.
