Are you into sugar and spice – and burgers with a nibble of heat? The new Liberty Burger Candied Cowboy burger features candied jalapeños, pepper jack cheese, spicy aioli and may be just what you need if you like burgers with a bit of sweet heat.

As half of the Dallas team tasked with finding, culling and ranking the very best burgers in Dallas for Texas Monthly’s “50 Greatest Burgers in Texas” issue a couple of years ago, I’ve eaten more than my fair share of burgers in town. Among the best were a couple at Liberty Burger, a small mini-chain co-founded in 2010 by Mariel Street and her brother, Gene Street, Jr., that’s known for substantial burgers constructed from responsibly sourced ingredients. To Liberty Burger’s mix of bison, chicken, turkey, lamb, tuna and veggie burger options, the Streets recently added a new Liberty Burger “Candied Cowboy” burger that incorporates candied jalapeños.

Built upon their already excellent Liberty Burger foundation, the Candied Cowboy begins with a custom blend of grass-fed filet, brisket and chuck then adds chipotle bbq sauce, sriracha aioli, pepper jack cheese, bacon, red onion strings and sliced jalapeños that were briefly steeped in sugared water to cut their bite while preserving their texture. Everything gets squeezed into a locally baked brioche bun.

The company likes to tout that all its buns come from bakeries that only use American-grown ingredients.

The Liberty Burger Candied Cowboy burger, a two-handed contraption, clocks in at $10 — and a few more calories than that. But what the hell — go ahead and add an order of crunchy onion rings and one of Liberty Burger’s fantastic chocolate or blueberry pies.

It’s all too much for one person, so bring another glutton with you.
