Jalapeño-Pimento Cheese Instructions:
Combine all ingredients and mix until well-blended. Refrigerate at least one hour to allow the flavors to combine.
Fire up a full chimney of Original Kingsford® Charcoal, or light a pile of about 100 briquets. Configure the coals for a two-zone fire, placing the briquets on one half of the charcoal grate to create a hot zone for grilling and a cool zone for moving the burgers during flare-ups. Adjust the bottom grill vents for medium-high heat cooking, approximately 400–425°F.
Gently form ground beef into eight 2-inch patties. Sprinkle both sides of burger patties liberally with salt and pepper.
Grill burgers until they reach an internal temperature of 160°F. Place burgers on the bottom buns, top each with approximately 2 tablespoons jalapeño-pimento cheese. Add top bun and serve immediately.
