In a nutshell: this could be confused with a mini-meatloaf. What is so great about this burger is that you can put all kinds of goodies in it without worry about half of them falling out of your bun! You can enjoy it like 1lb burger but only feel the guilt of eating a 1/4 pounder!

Step 1: Materials
Laura's Lean Ground Beef (for a very tasty and healthy burger)
Whole wheat bun
Mesquite or Hickory
Step 2: Preperation
Soak however many you think you will use in a large bucket of water, 5-6 should be good. This will allow them to steam/smoke more of their flavor into the BBQ without burning up so quickly.
Step 3: The meat of it!
Once you have your desired number of patties then use a sharp knife (or razor blade) to cut the wax paper around the patties, that way you can stake them for easy transport to the grill.
Some other things to try to mix in if you are feeling adventurous:
...any other suggestions?
Step 4: Fire It Up Baby!
DO NOT start cooking your food as soon as you see fire!!! (unless you use gas) I can not tell you how new BBQ-ers have have made this mistake...nor how many tons of food have been ruined by this mistake. Especially if you are using lighter fluid, be sure the flame dies down and that most of the coal are just a subtle orange glow. I find that many times after i cook my food it just then becomes perfect for cooking so don't worry about the flame going out. (Worst case scenario you just add a few more coals or wood.)
As you are waiting for the fire to get up to temperature saute some onions in a skillet to assemble into your hamburger.
Step 5: Say Cheese!
Random tip: To prepare avocado i like to cut it in have longitudinally, then whack the pit with the sharp edge of my knife and twist it out of the avocado half. Then run the tip of the knife down the flesh of the half without piecing the skin to segment it, then just use a spoon to scoop it out.
Step 6: Better out than in I always say...except for this OgreBurger!
This one is served with green leaf lettuce (far superior then ice-burg), tomato, avocado, sauted onions, light mayo and ketchup...and a little slide of heaven!
Now have a breath mint... You may have enjoyed your burger but some of the creatures that live in your swamp may not be blessed with the same fine pallet as you.
