Sliders on the Drum

I love sliders and decided to try a batch on the drum smoker.
When I make these in the house, I brown the meat and spoon it onto a bun instead of forming patties.

I mixed
1 1/2lbs of burger
1 pkg of dry onion soup mix
about 1/3 cup of ketsup
1 egg
some worcestershire sauce
1/8 cup of water

(use your favorite burger recipe)

Formed into patties and wrapped some in bacon, then sprinkled with black pepper..

I placed them around the outside of the drum...the drum cooks hotter in the center and I didn't want them to cook too fast.... (also added potatoes for fried chips)

They smoked with a bit of mesquite and were ready in about 1 hour...

I use hawaiian rolls for sliders, they are my favorite...

I split the rolls open add a burger top with cheese and press them with the palm of my hand to flatten...

Wrapped in foil and back onto the cooker for 15 minutes....
This warms them through and melts the cheese just right.

Plate full of sliders...

I can only eat 2 or three (if I skip the tatos)

They were really tasty!
