2 pounds lean ground beef
1/2 cup prepared barbecue sauce
1 (8 ounce) can sliced pineapple
8 slices pastrami
Prepare grill for indirect cooking.
In a large bowl, mix together hamburger meat and barbecue sauce. Season with salt and pepper.
Shape mixture into 4 large patties. Place a slice of pineapple on top of each. Crisscross 2 pastrami strips around each burger, and secure with toothpicks.
Brush oil on grate. Place burgers on grill over medium low heat. Cook, covered, until the burger is cooked through. Turn often to avoid burning the pastrami.
