  • Charcoal Grill
  • Kingsford Original Charcoal
  • Charcoal Chimney
  • Lighter
  • Grilling spatula



  • 1 1/4 lbs ground beef 80% lean
  • kosher salt & black pepper to taste
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese
  • 8 slices italian bread thick sliced from a loaf
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 1/2 lb straight cut frozen french fries


  • 1 1/2 cups green cabbage, shredded
  • 1 1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
  • 1 1/2 tbsp light olive oil
  • kosher salt & black pepper to taste



  • Place the cabbage in a bowl.
  • toss with apple cider vinegar, oil, and salt & pepper to taste


  • Bake the french fries in the oven according to the instructions on the package.
  • Start a pile of Kingsford Charcoal in the grill for direct cooking. We use a charcoal chimney starter. It's by-far the easiest way to start charcoal fast and evenly.
  • Shape and press the beef into 4 even patties. Indent the centers to prevent them from shrinking into meatballs on the grill! Be sure to season them with salt & pepper.
  • Once the charcoal is ready, spread it evenly and prepare the grill for the burgers.
  • Place the burger patties on the grill and grill them until pink juice stops oozing out the centers - about 6 minutes per side.
  • As soon as juices run clear, add the cheddar slices to the patties and give them a minute or two to melt before removing the burgers.
  • Toss the italian bread on to the grill for a few seconds per side to add a slight delicious toastiness to the bread!

Build the Burgers

  • Spread about 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise on the bread, add the burger patty, 1/4 of the coleslaw, and a handful of french fries.
  • Top it off with the second slice of toasted italian bread and enjoy immediately!
