Step 1 Of 7
1. Preheat your smoker to 225°F.
2. With a sharp chef's knife, cut the beef sirloin into thin slabs. Next, slice the slabs into thin, spaghetti-like strips. Turn 90° and cut into 1/8 - 1/4-inch pieces or use a meat grinder if you have one.
3. Combine the ground beef sirloin with the egg, breadcrumbs, Spanish paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and black pepper. Divide into 4 - 6 burger patties.
4. Place the burger patties and bacon slices into your smoker. Add a few mesquite wood chunks onto hot coals. Cook for 30 minutes at 225°F.
5. Preheat your grill to 500°F.
6. Remove the bacon from your smoker. Transfer the burgers onto your pre-heated grill and sear for 1 minute each side. Add slices of sharp cheddar cheese 30-seconds before removing the burgers, allowing the cheese to melt.
7. Serve with smoked bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, red onions and your favorite condiments.
