They say copying is the best form of flattery. That rings true with Burger King's Big King, which holds a striking resemblance to McDonald's Big Mac. Two patties... Check. Special Sauce... Check.

    1. Start by preparing the sauce. Mix together all of the sauce ingredients in a small bowl, and refrigerate until needed.
    2. Slice a couple of slices of white onion and set to one side.
    3. Preheat your gas grill on a high heat.
    4. While your grill is pre-heating, divide your ground beef into 8 equal portions. Press each patty flat. Use the bun as a rough size guide, ensuring the patties are a similar size.
    5. Grill the patties for 3 minutes each side, and season as you take them off the grill.
    6. While your cooking the patties, lightly toast your buns either on the grill or in a toaster.
    7. Once everything is cooked build your burger in the following order;
      – Patty
      – Cheese
      – Patty
      – Cheese
      – Onion rings
      – Pickle slices
