If you’re tired of plain old ordinary Sloppy Joe’s, try this new twist on your old favorite. Courtesy of G-Que BBQ, this recipe is simple but packs a great flavor thanks to the smoking process.

2-2 1/2 pounds ground beef
kosher salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 red bell pepper, chopped
1 medium yellow onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups ketchup
2 teaspoons yellow mustard
2 tablespoons brown sugar
About 1/2 cup water, or more as needed

Mix together the beef, seasonings, peppers and onion. Spread out in an aluminum foil pan, exposing as much surface of the meat as possible. Place on smoker that has been prepared with oak and hickory and is at 300 degrees. Cook the burger until it reaches an internal temp of 140 degrees. Drain the fat from the pan. Break up the meat into small pieces. Mix the ketchup, mustard and brown sugar. Add to meat mixture, add just enough water to make a moist mix. Return to smoker for 10 minutes. Stir the mixture and smoke for an additional 10 minutes.

Serve on buns.

This recipe was a “PaPa Cooks” recipe. It’s a team effort at our house.
