Are you hungry yet?

First things first... you need your favorite beer in can form (don't drink it just yet, it doesn't work with empty cans), ground chuck beef, toppings, a grill, and a BIG ass appetite!

Here's a more detailed ingredient list.

Get started by forming the ground chuck beef into 1/2- to 3/4-pound meatballs, like so...

Pretty easy so far, right?

Next, get your beer cans out and smash them right in the center. The excess meat will squeeze out from the bottom. Just work it around the can like he’s doing here:

Then, once all the meat is around the can — line it with a layer of bacon. Mmmmmmmmm, BACON!!!!!!!!!

Isn't that fabulous?

Next, The BBQ Pit Boys recommend using a dishtowel to get some grip on the can and work it out of the center of the bacon-wrapped meatball. It may take a bit of maneuvering.

TIP: This can end up being a disaster if your meat gets warm. So try your best to keep it chilled.

Oh and here are all the toppings just chillin' on the grill getting all savory and sh*t. This is going to be your stuffing, so stir it around and make sure it's cooking evenly and what not.

Here he's grilling up onions, peppers, mushrooms, meat chili, and roast beef. But, he insists you really can put just about whatever you want in your burger.

Now, stuff those bad boys to the brim and get it poppin'.

Can you even deal?

After your burgers are loaded up, they are ready to grill. Place the burgers on an in-direct, medium heat that's at about 300 degrees fahrenheit and cover for about an hour.

They can be served in a bed of mashed potatoes with your extra toppings or on a bun. And of course, you're gonna wanna finish off all that extra beer!
