Preheat your grill at 350°F.
Separate the ground beef into 12 equal sized portions.
Place a beef patty between two layers of parchment paper and press down to a 1/4 inch flat patty using a cast iron skillet, a burger press, or your hands.
Fold a slice of American cheese and place in the center of the beef patty then add 1 tbsp of Hot Pepper Bacon Jam on top.
Close with another 1/4 inch flat patty by pinching and pushing the edges to secure the cheese and jam inside then season with salt and pepper to taste.
Repeat for each burger.
Brush the interior of each burger bun with melted butter.
Make the burger sauce: combine all Burger Sauce ingredients into a bowl and mix.
Set aside in the refrigerator.
Place the burgers on your hot grate and close the lid.
Cook for 3 to 4 minutes per side or until desired doneness.
Grill the buns for 10 to 15 seconds.
Assemble each Juicy Lucy Burgers between two grilled buns with a spoonful of burger sauce, a grilled beef patty and 3 pickles.
Serve and enjoy!
