Before starting, remove 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter from the fridge and set aside to come up to room temperature. Wash and dry all produce. Halve cucumber lengthwise, then cut into 1/4-inch half-moons.Open one side of the package of crispy shallots and reserve half of the shallots on a plate. (NOTE: Reserved crispy shallots will be used in step 5.) Using a rolling pin or a heavy-bottomed pan, gently crush remaining crispy shallots in their package until broken into fine crumbs.Combine BBQ sauce and half of the mustard in a small bowl.
Add crispy shallot crumbs, BBQ Seasoning, beef and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) salt and 1/4 tsp (1/2 tsp) pepper to a large bowl, then combine.Form mixture into two 5-inch-wide patties (4 patties for 4 ppl).
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil, then patties. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; cook patties in 2 batches if needed.) Pan-fry until cooked through, 4-5 min per side.**When patties are almost cooked through, top with cheese. Cover and cook until cheese melts, 1-2 min.Remove from heat, then transfer patties to a plate.Carefully rinse and wipe the pan clean.
Reheat the same pan over medium.Meanwhile, halve buns, then spread 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) softened butter onto cut sides of each bun half.When the pan is hot, add buns, cut-sides down. (NOTE: Don't overcrowd the pan; toast buns in 2 batches for 4 ppl). Toast until golden-brown, 2-3 min. (TIP: Keep an eye on buns so they don't burn!)
