Awesome BBQ Bison Burgers

Last night I grilled up my Bison Burgers from my Bison Sampler. I really didn't have a good Bison burger recipe, so before I left the office for the day, I got together with our Creative Director and creator of the Lobster Gram Cooking Manual, Nancy and we created a BBQ sauce with simple directions and complex flavor. Here is the video from the recipe, and I will be working on these pictures as well as the pictures from the Bison Strip Steaks & Rib eyes to post very soon. Happy eating foodies!

Nancy & Nikki's BBQ Bison Burger Recipe
  • 4 1/4 lb Bison Burgers
  • 1 Cup Sweet Baby Ray's Award Winning BBQ Sauce (Original)
  • 1 Tsp Sea Salt
  • 1 Tsp Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Ground Garlic
  • 1 Tsp Ground Thyme
  • 1 Tbs Brown Sugar
  • 1 Shot of Jack Daniels
  • Spray on Olive Oil (such as Pam)

In a mixing bowl, combine BBQ sauce and other ingredients and blend well. Spray Bison Burgers with olive oil. Using a rubber spatula, cover one side of burger with BBQ Sauce and flip. Cover other side of burger and set to the side. Repeat this with all burgers.
Heat electric grill on high (5) and sear burgers for 1-2 minutes per side. Turn grill heat down to low (3) and cook burgers 4 minutes per side. When burgers are about 4 minutes from being done, give them another slathering of BBQ sauce and lay your cheese on the burger to melt.
Remove burgers form heat when cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
