Pastrami Cheese Burger

What could be better than a bacon cheese burger? A pastrami cheese burger! I only had enough pastrami; I had made Sunday, left for one sandwich. I kept getting into it for a snack, love that stuff cold. I already had some of Kah’s burgers thawing out for supper so thought just use some of the pastrami on the burgers. I had also made some French style new red potato salad.

We were all up early this morning to see the grandson off to his first day of school, second grade. I worked most of the afternoon removing street brick from my patio to install underground service to my smoking deck. Those babies weigh 8 lbs. a piece so needed a few beer breaks too!

My d-i-l works afternoons, and at the last minute the grandson was off to eat out with a friend. There was just the wife & I and our son for supper.

I threw the one piece cast iron grate from my Weber Q100 on the smoker to do the burgers. I preheated it to 375 deg. Threw on the burgers and pastrami, 7 to 8 minutes on a side then topped the burgers with pastrami, provolone cheese, and the buns for a couple of minutes to melt the cheese and toast the onion poppy seed buns.

Sandwiches were great, the pastrami got a little crisp and I even got some grill marks on the burgers! The sides were good, my wife made up a box of Kraft shells and cheese and my potato salad was great. The potato salad was Bobby Flays recipe from food network.
