“Yummy blue/bleu cheese burger adapted from a local blues-y BBQ joint (Red, Hot & Blue) that has now closed down. They called it The Blackwoods burger and DH & I absolutely loved it! My ingredient measures are rough build this burger with the amounts that appeal to you.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 beef burgers, cooked as you like it (pepper-crusted would be good)
  • 2 kaiser rolls, toasted
  • 12 cup blue cheese
  • 14 cup barbecue sauce
  • 14 cup pickled jalapeno pepper
  • 12 cup Coleslaw (homemade or deli)
  • 4 slices bacon, crispy cooked (optional, my addition) (optional)
  • 12 cup French-fried onions (optional, my addition) (optional)


  1. To assemble, lay your toasted bun bottoms out. Spread with BBQ sauce.
  2. Now to layer. Place your burger on the bun and top with a little more BBQ sauce, if you like.
  3. Top each burger with half of the remaining ingredients, in this order (or whatever order you'd like): bacon, blue cheese, jalapenos, slaw, french fried onions.
  4. Top with bun. Secure with toothpick if needed. Eat with LOTS of napkins on hand.
