 Ground beef (80/20)
 2 Onions, chopped
 Cheddar cheese (thick slice)
 Duck fat
 Brown sugar
 Maldon salt
 Coarse ground pepper

1

Light your charcoal in the KUDU and let them burn to embers with a layer of white ash.

2

Loose pack your ground beef to 1-inch patties. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

3

Finely chop the onions.

4

Adjust your cast iron skillet height over the ember at medium heat (approx. 400 degrees).

Move your KUDU cast iron to that height and let it heat up for 5 minutes.

6

Add a spoonful of duck fat and spread it evenly around the cast iron.
