Smoke the burger for about 60-90 minutes. Smoke until they reach an internal temperature between 150F-160F.
When there are 10 to 15 minutes of smoking left, place a little cheese on each patty. Continue smoking with the cheese on top.
Brush the buns with butter and grill them for 1 minute. Cut side down.
Serve the burgers with a few toppings. You can use bacon, tomatoes, sliced onions, lettuce, tomatoes, sliced pickles, ketchup, mustard, or mayonnaise.
