1 teaspoon Chili powder
1 tablespoon Honey

LIVING WELL Tailgate Burgers Preparation:
Step 1 – In a medium size bowl mix the ground chuck, sausage, bacon, garlic powder, brown sugar, chili powder, black pepper, honey, onion and Worcestershire sauce. Drizzle with some of the extra virgin olive oil. Divide into ten individual patties.  Make a little indention with your pinky in the middle of each burger. This trick will keep them from swelling and maintain their juiciness.  These can be made well in advance and stored in an airtight container stacked between the wax paper.
Step 2 –Over hot coals, grill the burgers on one side and gently flip over and continue cooking to the desired doneness. Top with cheese and allow to melt.
