Preheat a gas grill to medium-high. To make the sauce place all ingredients in a large fireproof non-stick skillet (except cheese). Mix well. Cook on the grill for 3 minutes while continuously stirring. Add cheese. While continuously stirring, heat until cheese has melted and sauce is smooth. Be careful not to scorch. Set aside. (Sauce will thicken while sitting). To make the patties, combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well. Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form the portions to be about the same diameter as the bread. Take a shallow pan and put the 3 cups of flour in it. Coat each patty with the Flour. Set aside. Brush the grill rack with Vegetable oil. Place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook about 3 minutes. Turn the patties. Spread equal portions of the sauce on each pattie, cover, and cook about 6 minutes. During the last minute of cooking, place the bread, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast evenly and lightly. To assemble the burgers, on each bread bottom, place a patty. Add the bread tops and serve. Makes 6 burgers
