What's this?

Smothered in cheese and rib rub, this grilled Reuben sandwich lets you pork out on pig Traeger style. We have a recipe for homemade Pastrami, if you're super ambitious this recipe will give you double bragging rights.

Ingredients

  • 2 Pound ground chuck, 80% lean

  • 4 Slices Swiss cheese

  • 1/2 Pound Sliced Pastrami or Corned Beef, Chopped

  • 1 As Needed Traeger Prime Rib Rub

  • 1

  • 4 Whole hamburger buns

  • 1/2 Cup Thousand Island Dressing

  • 1 Cup Sauerkraut

Steps

  • 1

    Form the ground chuck into 8 equal balls, and then into patties. Top with the remaining patties, and press the edges to seal in the filling. Reshape the burgers if necessary so they are of an even thickness.
  • 2

    Just before grilling, season the patties with Traeger Prime Rib Rub.
  • 3

    When ready to cook, set temperature to 180℉ and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes.
  • 4

    Arrange the burgers on the grill grate and smoke for 30 minutes.
  • 5

    ncrease the temperature to 300℉ and continue to cook until the internal temperature of the burgers reaches 165℉, about 30 minutes. (Put the temperature probe into the burgers from the side, not the top, for an accurate reading.)
  • 6

    To serve, spread the cut sides of the buns with thousand island dressing. Put a burger on the bottom half of each bun, and top with sauerkraut, if desired.

    Serve immediately. Enjoy!
