BBQ Smoked Bison Burger with your choice of toppings. This Juicy Bison Burger renders all the amazing flavors when smoked with a pellet grill (Traeger) which I used or regular charcoal grill. Hey, even a gas grill does the job.

Serves:  4 people

Prep & Cook time:  1.5hrs


  • 450 grams Papa Earth Ground Bison
  • 1 cups of chopped spinach
  • ¼ cup of bread crumbs
  • 2 grated garlic cloves
  • ¼ cup of feta
  • 1 egg
  • 1 table spoon of Dijon mustard
  • 1 table spoon of paprika
  • Dash of salt & pepper

Candied Bacon (Topping)

6 slices of bacon tossed into a bowl with brown sugar & maple syrup. Simply mixed together laid out on parchment paper & cooked in the oven till ready.


Combine all ingredient in a bowl until a smooth formation, make four round balls place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper & flatten down balls. Use a spoon to make a small pocket in the middle of the patty (this will prevent it from puffing up during the cook).

Preheat your grill to 350 degrees F & Smoke/Cook the Burger approx. 15 min per side or an internal temp of 165 degrees.

Pellet or wood flavor of choice. Now sit back & enjoy this Juice-alicous Burger
