Here are some recipes for you to give Bad Byron's Butt Rub a try.



  • 2 lbs. ground beef or combine1 lb. of ground beef and 1 lb. pork sausage
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup bread crumbs
  • ½ cup apple sauce
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (Mozzarella or Swiss)
  • 4 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 pkg dry onion soup mix
  • ½ tablespoon Bad Byron’s Butt Rub®


In a bowl, mix all ingredients together. When ingredients are mixed together, make into patties approximately 4 inches across and approximately ¾ of an inch thick. NOTE: 2 lbs. should make approximately 8 burgers.


Prepare Grill:

Preheat grill to around 300 degrees. When ready to cook, spray or brush grill grate with cooking oil to prevent sticking.



Use ½ tablespoon of Bad Byron’s Butt Rub® to 1½ cup of butter or margarine. Mix and melt in the microwave, stove top, or grill. (Butter or margarine mix is used for basting the meat loaf burgers and buns).
Place burgers on a plate. Brush one side of the meat loaf burgers lightly with the melted butter or margarine mix.
Arrange the meat loaf burgers on a hot grate. Place them buttered side down. Brush the other side lightly with melted butter or margarine mix. Grill until bottoms are nicely browned, approximately 4-5 minutes.
Use a spatula to turn the meat loaf burgers over. Baste with a butter or margarine mix. Grill until browned. Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until desired taste.


Brush one side of Ciabatta bread or Texas Garlic Toast with butter or margarine mix. Grill it until it is brown. Flip it over, and brush the other side with the butter or margarine mix.
Grill it until it is brown. Do this during the last two minutes the meat loaf burgers are cooking. Set out toppings (any condiments will work on a meat loaf burger). Put burgers on toasted buns and serve.


Sauce: (optional)

  • 1/3 cup ketchup
  • 1/3 cup prepared mustard
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
Heat the ingredients at low heat so you will not burn the sauce. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Put meat loaf burger on bun and add sauce. Enjoy.




Apply a liberal coating of Butt Rub® on both sides. Let it sit while you prepare the glaze.

Molasses Glaze:


In a sauce pan combine molasses, a couple of cloves of crushed garlic and balsamic vinegar to taste. Be careful not to overpower with the vinegar. Also if you have a strong molasses, you can add a small amount of good (grade B) maple syrup.

Let this mixture simmer for a few minutes.

Preheat the oven to 450-475°. Place the salmon fillet on a sheet pan. Spread the molasses mixture over the top. Roast for 10-15 minutes.
