Smoked Garden Turkey Burgers


Just the way The Man likes it; smoked.

Mesquite smoked.

If he had his way, everything would be smoked.

I love making burgers because I just start throwing everything into a bowl, mash it up, and see how it turns out.

Sometimes it’s good.

Sometimes, it’s not so good.

This time, it was great. {the smoking may have had a lot to do with it}

Here’s what you’ll need:

1 pound Ground Turkey
2 cloves Garlic; pressed
3 green onions; chopped
5 sun dried tomatoes; chopped
3 tbsp bread crumbs
1 tsp lemon zest

Just toss all the ingredients {minus the salt and pepper} into a large bowl and mix with your hands. Then form 4 patties by tossing back and forth between your hands. Try to handle the patties as little as possible. Press your thumb slightly in the middle of the patties {this will make your patties stay flat and not get dome shaped}.

Then sprinkle with salt and pepper.

You will want to smoke these.

Trust me.

Trust The Man too. {he is wise}

Chop up some Mesquite wood {or your preferred wood} and soak in water for a few minutes.

Get some coals burning.

Once they are white hot, put them in your BBQ and place the wood on top.

Replace the wire grill rack and close the lid to let the smoke start building.

Once it’s going good, place your patties on.

Close the lid, but leave it cracked open so smoke can escape. You don’t want any fire, just smoke.

Just about 5-7 minutes on each side.

Smoked to perfection.

It’s up to you what you accompany your burger with.

Going with the Garden theme, I used avocado, spinach leaves, tomato, and a little bacon and Swiss cheese never hurt…

So go smoke something today!
