For the sweet bourbon sauce: 

1/4 cup cornstarch

1/4 cup confectioners' sugar

1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

3/4 cup bourbon

2 tablespoons soy sauce

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup

1/3 cup sesame oil

2 1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 teaspoon dijon mustard

1 teaspoon minced garlic

1 teaspoon minced onion

1 1/2 teaspoons Tabasco sauce

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

For the burgers:

2 pounds USDA choice Angus ground chuck


pepper and garlic salt 

12 slices thick-cut smokehouse bacon, cooked until crispy

6 thick slices smoked cheddar cheese

6 fresh bakery buns, toasted and buttered


  1. Make the sauce: In a bowl, mix the cornstarch, confectioners' sugar, cayenne pepper, salt and black pepper. In a large saute pan over low heat, combine the bourbon, 1 cup water, the soy sauce, Worcestershire sauce, maple syrup, sesame oil, vinegar, mustard, garlic, onion, Tabasco, brown sugar and granulated sugar. Bring up the heat to a simmer and slowly add the dry mix to the wet, whisking vigorously as you go. When the mixture is well combined, cook about 1 more minute. Turn off the heat. 
  2. Preheat a grill or griddle over medium-high heat. 
  3. Make the burgers: Form the meat into 6 patties. Lightly season with salt, pepper and garlic salt. Grill the patties to medium, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Add 2 strips of bacon to each patty. Melt a thick slice of smoked cheese over each bacon burger. 
  4. Place the burgers between the buns, drizzling a generous amount of bourbon sauce on each burger.
