We may be in the dead of winter but I can still fantasize about a warm sunny day and burgers on the grill. This recipe is terrific and always a hit with family and friends.

2 lbs. lean ground beef
3 tablespoons Italian salad dressing
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 can (15-oz.) sliced pineapple, drained
8 slices bacon
3/4 cup barbecue sauce
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 tablespoon lemon juice

Mix ground beef, salad dressing, salt and pepper. Shape into 8 patties, 3=inches in diameter. Press pineapple slice into each patty. Wrap each patty with bacon slice, secure with wooden pick. Mix remaining ingredients. Place patties in glass dish, 13X9 inches. Pour barbecue mixture over patties. Cover and refrigerate at least 2 hours.
Grill patties pineapple sides down 4 inches from hot coals, 12 to 15 minutes. Turn, brush with barbecue sauce mixture. Grill 10 to 15 minutes more. Heat remaining sauce; serve with patties.
