For the burger we used a little over a pound of ground buffalo meat mixed with half a teaspoon each of salt, pepper, onion salt, and garlic salt. We had our new smoker/grill heated to 350 degrees.
With a little american cheese and ketchup on top the burgers were perfect and exactly what I had waited a year for.
We love using buffalo instead of ground beef because it is in general leaner and has a gamey flavor which ground beef has been lost at this point. We were able to find organic buffalo at Costco but most grocery stores have it right next to the ground beef section.
If you try making this burger or salad I hope it's as yummy a meal as it was for us!
