Did you ever try McDonalds' Arch Deluxe back in 1996?  (I think there were 3 different kinds at the time)  but the one I'm thinking of in particular had this "red smoke flavored paste (sauce?)"  in it.. yeah.. oh my gosh it was sooooo good!!!!   My taste buds actually have their own memories of that flavor from so long ago and now I'm craving it!!!

I tried various recipes on the goog, but NONE come close to the original flavor of that burger, and they're missing the most important part... that red smoked tomato paste!!!  How could they leave it out??? Cannot for the life of me simulate that flavor.  Anyone know how to go about doing this??

I only see one Arch Deluxe that was ever made, as far as I know there weren't any variations of it.

 

THE SECRET SAUCE:
1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon Grey Poupon Specialty peppercorn mustard

I kind of doubt this would give you a "red smoke" flavor but you could try substituting ketchup instead of mayonnaise.

Tried making one today, it didn't quite taste the same.. but still delicious.   I also tried some sauce to the side which was tomato paste and liquid smoke (hickory), definitely not it.  I wonder if it might have been mesquite.  Now I'll have to go hunting for that.  Thanks for the sauce tip though, will use it again.

Not sure why, but this made me laugh.  Either it was funny, or I am tired.  You pick.  :)

Oh wow, I remember the Arch Deluxe. I had one. It was the burger with a grown up taste.

Some googling turned up results and apparently someone cloned the recipe, and came out with this:

 

1 tablespoon mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon brown mustard (French's "Hearty Deli" is good)

1 sesame seed hamburger bun
1/4 pound ground beef
1 slice American cheese
1 to 2 tomato slices
1 to 2 lettuce leaves, chopped
1/2 tablespoon ketchup
2 tablespoons chopped onion

It had smoked pepper bacon, Dijon mayo and ketchup. Maybe you're missing the smoked bacon?
