This is the Emperor's new favorite burger. Ground chuck burger can easily be cooked to a nice medium rare. For a royale with cheese experience, add sauce galore and load it into a toasted kaiser bun for a punch of flavor.

When ready to cook, set Traeger temperature to 500℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
While the Traeger heats up, combine ground chuck, cheese and Traeger Beef Rub in a medium bowl. Wet your hands with cold water and mix gently.
Divide the meat into four equal portions. Rewet your hands with cold water, and form each portion into a patty about 4 inches in diameter and 3/4 inch thick. Do not overwork the meat. Using your thumbs, make a shallow but wide depression on the top of each burger.
Combine mayonnaise and Traeger 'Que BBQ Sauce in a shallow bowl and refrigerate until serving time.
Brush the cut sides of the kaiser rolls with melted butter.
Arrange the burgers directly on the grill grate, depression-side down. Cook for 8 minutes, then flip. Cook for an additional 8 to 10 minutes, or until an instant-read meat thermometer registers an internal temperature of 160℉.
Meanwhile, place rolls cut-side down on the grill and cook 2 to 4 minutes until lightly browned.
Remove from the grill and spread cut side of the rolls with the BBQ-mayonnaise sauce.
Place a burger on each roll bottom then top with lettuce, onion, tomato and pickle. Finish with the top of the roll. Enjoy!
