  1. Combine ground beef, salt, pepper, granulated garlic, and onion powder in a mixing bowl. Mix until combined.
  2. Divide the mixture into 4 equal parts. Form each into a patty, making sure that the patty is bigger than the hamburger bun.
  3. Place the formed patties on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Chill for 20 minutes before grilling.
  4. Meanwhile, in a shallow saute pan, heat up the butter. Add the onions and saute until slightly brown, about 2 minutes.

  6. Cook the burgers for 4 to 5 minutes each side
  7. Butter the buns. Toast them on the grill for 1 minute or until golden brown.
  8. Assemble the burger in this order: bottom bun, lettuce leaves, burger patty, cheese, barbecue sauce, mayonnaise, and top bun.
  9. Keep the burger in place by inserting a cocktail pick in the middle. Serve and enjoy!
