July 4th Stuffed Elk Burgers

Discussion in 'Wild Game' started by baja traveler, Jul 4, 2013.

  1. Thawed out some ground elk a buddy gave me from his successful hunt last fall and decided to use my new Lowes stuffed burger maker. Seasoned the elk with just salt & pepper and for good measure mixed in a teaspoon of Jeff's rub. Formed it in the press and stuffed it with my smoked pepperjack cheese, mushrooms and black olives. 

    Fired up the smoker to 230* and filled a row of the AMNPS with Mesquite pellets. The burgers smoked for just over 2 hours until they reached an IT of 145 (medium well). Turned out perfect - nice and juicy and full of flavor. One of the best burgers I've had in a long while!
