Combine the beef, Worcestershire sauce, liquid smoke, and garlic powder in a medium bowl. Form into four patties. Brush each side of the burger with olive oil and salt before placing it on your outdoor wood fire grill. Grill about 5 minutes on each side.

The Tex-Mex Burger

We saved the best for last—the Tex-Mex burger! This delicious, juicy burger is the perfect combination of flavors. Even though it has more ingredients than the other, we promise the extra effort is worth it.
