2. Slightly oil your griddle and caramelize your onions. Place a nob of butter on the griddle and make your top and bottom burger bun grilled cheeses. Remove all and reserve.
3. Slightly oil the stuffed burgers. Place the stuffed burgers on the grill grate and cook for 2 minutes dome down. After 2 minutes, flip and continue to cook for another 2 minutes or until you reach your desired internal temperature. Top burgers with shredded cheese and allow it to melt.
4. While the cheese is melting and the dome is closed, build the burger as follows: Bottom Bun (Grilled Cheese), Sauce, bibb lettuce, seasoned tomato, cheese stuffed and topped burger, sauce, caramelized onions, Bun (Grilled Cheese).
5. Open the draft door and Kontrol Tower, burp the grill and open the lid slowly. Top each burger with the Pickled Jalapenos, Caramelized Onion, Pepper Jack cheese Slices, Avocado Fans and transfer the burgers on top of the tomato.
