Combine the ground brisket with the salt and pepper.
Once you’ve tried a beef brisket burger, you may never go back to plain ground beef again. You’ll become a burger purist and nothing else will do thanks to the wonderful marbling that will have you sinking your teeth into incredible juiciness with each and every bite.
Form four patties and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
Preheat the grill to medium high.
Grill the patties for four minutes, then flip and continue grilling until the internal temperature of the meat is 160°F as measured with a digital thermometer.
Remove patties and reserve.
Grill the hamburger buns until they have nice char marks.
Top the buns with the burgers, port cheese, bacon, grilled onions, arugula and mayonnaise mixed with smoked tomato and chives.
