  1. For sauce, combine jelly, barbecue sauce, pepper sauce and vinegar in small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook 5-7 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly.

Grill 2-3 minutes; turn and baste with remaining sauce. Grill an additional 2-3 minutes or until meat is no longer pink in center. Serve burgers on buns.
