BBQ Burgers

I have adapted this one from a Rachael Ray recipe. It's like putting BBQ sauce on your burger but the flavor is infused with the meat. Steve loves these. Unfortunately there is never any leftovers for lunch the next day. I love to serve this with oven and carrot fries (for those watching that girlish figure).

1 lb hamburger
1-2 Tbs. ketchup or tomato paste
1 Tbs. liquid smoke
1 Tbs Worcestershire
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. grill seasoning
1/2 cup brown sugar
salt and pepper to taste

Throw the meat in a bowl with all the ingredients and mix. Form into patties and grill or cook indoors. To add another level top with cheese.

*Just a side note here: If you use ketchup instead of tomato paste it may make cause the patties to want to crumble. I don't want you to loose the burgers in your grill. So if you are planning on cooking outside, use tomato paste. Also, the amounts are guesses I always just throw everything in and eyeball it.
