    So after getting some burger advice from the SMF'ers, I tried my hand at bison burgers today. Didn't know I was going to do bison, just happened to stumble across it while shopping for burgers at the commissary. 

    I used Jeff's Rub as my seasoning. I cut the recipe in 1/4 and still had more than I needed, but we only made two burgers. For a family four it would have been adequate with some probably left over still. 

    At lunch, I came home and put the seasoning on the burgers, then wrapped them and put them in the fridge until I came home.

    Came home and got everything set up. Had to scrape and clean off gunk that had been caked into my grates. My grill was in storage for three years and I forgot to clean it before the movers picked it up haha. 

    Put the coal on one side of the grill and seared the burgers for about two minutes per side. Then I moved it to the other side for about 15 minutes. I threw some jalapenos and onions on there with foil, then topped with pepper jack cheese. My wife caramelized her onions w/ mushrooms and made jalapeno poppers. It turned out excellent!

    Thanks, SMF'ers for helping me out. Dinner tonight was a huge success!

    That looks great!

    Getting bison burger here is a hit and miss deal.  Even then it is expensive.

    But it sure does make a great burger, for any who haven't tried it.

    Kudos, and Welcome Home!

    Good luck and good smoking.

    Thanks, Venture! I just happened to stumble across them. Not sure how often they are actually stocked at the commissary. It was about $7 for three patties.
