How To Make The Easiest Bacon-Wrapped Burgers on a Ninja Woodfire Grill

  1. Add Robust pellets to the pellet hopper.
  2. Fire up your Ninja Woodfire Outdoor Grill and set it to grill, high, 20 minutes (they won’t take 20 minutes.) Press the Woodfire smoke button to infuse your burgers with a kiss of smoke.
  3. Meanwhile, wrap the frozen burger patties in 2 slices of bacon. Pull the bacon kind of tight, and overlap the ends on the underside of the burger.
  4. When the Ninja is ready, add the burgers to the grill and close the lid.
  5. Cook the burgers for 3-4 minutes, then flip them and cook for an additional 5-6 minutes.
  6. Check the internal temperature of the burgers – they should be 165-F with a digital meat thermometer.
  7. Serve the burgers on fresh buns with all your favorite toppings.

Chef Jenn’s Tips

  • Make sure you have pellets in the hopper if you use Woodfire smoke.
  • The Ninja Woodfire Grill with woodfire smoke can take 15-20 minutes to fully heat up so give yourself plenty of time.
  • Actual cooking time will vary on the thickness of your burgers. Store-bought burger patties should be cooked to 165-F.
  • Butter the buns and put them on the grill when the burgers are done, to warm them up a bit.
