Preparation

1
Combine blueberries, whiskey, and sugar in small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to low. Simmer, uncovered 10 to 12 minutes or until berries burst, stirring frequently. Stir together water and corn starch; stir into blueberry mixture. Cook and stir 1 minute or until thickened; remove from heat.
2
Sprinkle bacon slices with 1 tablespoon brown sugar bourbon seasoning. Cook bacon in medium skillet over medium heat 12 to 14 minutes or until crisp. Transfer bacon to paper towels to drain.
3
Preheat charcoal or gas grill with greased grill rack for direct cooking over medium-high heat (375°).
4
Sprinkle both sides of burgers with remaining 2 tablespoons brown sugar bourbon seasoning. Grill 10 minutes, turning halfway through. Top with cheese and grill 1 to 2 minutes more or until cheese is melted and burgers reach 165°. Remove from grill; loosely cover with foil to keep warm. Grill buns, cut sides down, 30 to 60 seconds or until lightly toasted. Remove from grill.
5
To serve, top bun bottoms with burgers, candied bacon, red onion, arugula, and blueberry-whiskey mixture. Lightly season with black pepper, if desired. Place bun tops on burgers.
