For the spice rub:

  • 1 tablespoon ancho chile powder
  • 2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

For the coleslaw:

  • 3/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 white onion, grated
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons celery seed
  • 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 head cabbage, shredded
  • 1 carrot, shredded

For the burgers:

  • 4 hamburger buns
  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • Spice rub
  • Oil, for coating
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 slices Cheddar cheese, for garnish
  • Coleslaw, for garnish
  • 1 cup barbecue sauce, for garnish
  • Dill pickle slices, for garnish


To prepare the rub:

  1. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients well.
  2. Store the spice rub in an airtight container until ready to use.

To prepare the coleslaw:

  1. In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, onion, sugar, celery seed, apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.
  2. Add shredded cabbage and carrot, and toss well to coat.

To prepare the burgers:

  1. Divide the ground beef into 4 equal portions. Form each portion into a patty. Use your thumb to make a slight depression in the center of each patty. Lightly coat each patty on all sides with the spice rub. Refrigerate in an airtight container until ready to cook.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill to high heat.
  3. Brush each patty with canola oil, and season with salt and pepper. Grill the burgers until golden brown, flipping halfway through, about 8 minutes total. Continue cooking until burgers reach desired doneness.
  4. Turn off the gas grill or if using a charcoal grill, transfer the burgers to the unheated side of the grill. Top each burger with a cheese slice, close the grill lid, and allow the cheese to melt, about 1 minute.
  5. To assemble each burger, place a cooked patty on the bottom of the bun. Layer with pickle slices, then top with a generous helping of coleslaw. Spread barbecue sauce on the top half of the bun, cap the burger, and serve.
