Why You Should Reconsider Grilling Bison Burgers
Contrary to popular belief, ground bison doesn’t taste gamey, but has a delicate flavor that’s sweeter than beef. However, it is a lean meat, so grilling it will dry it out.
A skillet on your stovetop is a safe bet to maintain the burger’s moisture and tenderness. Medium to medium-high heat with a bit of fat in the pan will render the best results.
Cooking bison burgers in an air fryer for 12 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit will yield a solid medium-rare middle. You can also use a smoker if you want to cook in the backyard.
If you’re set on grilling a bison burger, you can counteract any dryness with some juicy and flavorful toppings such as caramelized onions, avocado, and fresh ripe tomato.
