As part of Summer BBQ Sunday we’ve experimented with all sorts of great food on our BBQ but burgers are always popular. This Cheeseburger with Mango-Chile Salsa recipe from Weber’s New Real Grilling cookbook looks like a tasty alternative to plain burgers on the grill.


1 1/2 pounds ground chuck (80% lean)
1/2teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


1 large mango, cut into ½-inch dice (about 1 cup)
2 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro leaves
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
1 medium serrano chile pepper, seeded and minced
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
4 thin slices pepper jack cheese
4 hamburger buns, split
Dijon mustard

  1. Combine the patty ingredients, keeping the mixture crumbly rather than compressed. With wet hands, gently form four loosely packed patties of equal size, each about 1/4 inch thick. Don’t compact the meat too much or the patties will be tough. Using your thumb or the back of a spoon, make a shallow indentation about 1 inch wide in the center of each patty. This will help the patties cook evenly and prevent them from puffing on the grill.
  2. In a nonreactive bowl combine the salsa ingredients. Toss gently and then refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. (After an hour, the fruit starts to become mushy.)
  3. Prepare the grill for direct cooking over medium-high heat (400° to 500°F).
  4. Grill the patties over direct medium-high heat, with the lid closed, until cooked to medium doneness, 8 to 10 minutes, turning once when the patties release easily from the grate without sticking. During the last minute of grilling time, place a slice of cheese on each patty to melt and toast the buns, cut side down, over direct heat.
  5. Spread the bottom half of each bun with mustard, and serve the patties warm on the buns topped with salsa.
