Servings: 2 burgers


  • 1 lb. ground chuck (80/20)
  • 1 clove garlic, minced finely
  • 2 tbsp Rub My Meat Kona Coffee Rub, divided
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 buns, split and toasted
  • 2 slices garlic cheese, from the deli
  • Romaine lettuce, for topping
  • Heirloom tomatoes, sliced, for topping


  • Take your ground meat and put it into a medium bowl. Add 1 tbsp of the Kona coffee rub and the minced garlic and mix it into the meat. Mix lightly but thoroughly.
  • Form the mixture into two large patties. The patties should be slightly bigger than the buns you will be using.
  • Top both sides of burgers with the other 1 tbsp of the Kona coffee rub. Rub the burgers with a little olive oil so they do not stick to the grill.
  • Heat up your charcoal using a charcoal chimney. When the coals are ready, dump them into the heat chamber of the grill. Place burgers over the hottest part of the grill and cook 5-7 minutes per side until medium-well.
  • Add buns split side down and toast for 1-2 minutes on the grill. Remove and set aside.
  • Add cheese to the tops of your burgers and allow to melt.
  • Remove your burgers onto your buns. Top with lettuce, tomato and any other toppings you like.
