Anyone consider choosing ground turkey meat over beef? At first I was skeptical that a turkey burger, of any sort, could taste better than the basic fatty filling beef buger but I was wrong! I've recently had turkey burgers made over an open flame with...

- 2 containers (not sure what weight!) ground turkey meat
- 2 containers of hot salsa
- 1 half a red onion
- 1 half cup of mushrooms
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 half a clove of garlic

and wolah!
a turkey burger that tastes better than any beef burger you've ever had. Try it! :S!

We love buffalo (bison, in case any ranchers are reading this) out here. Very sweet and grainy, but you have to keep a close eye on it when grilling, because it's so lean. Never cook it beyond medium-rare plus.

I'll have to give the turkey burger recipe a try!

Turkey and bison are both great. Just don't try to do anything to make them 'beefy' tasting; they're best standing on their own merits. I mix a little quinoa and red wine into ground bison to help it stay moist. Another interesting meat for the grill is ostrich. It's downside is that it stinks pretty bad while being cooked. The smell stops as soon as it comes off the grill, but I wouldn't cook it indoors.

Turkey burgers are great, though my favorite burger to date was lamb. Only had it once so far, but I still remember it.

Turkey burgers are okay, but I'm more of an angus girl myself. I tried to do the whole lean meal thing with turkey burgers, turkey bacon...all that stuff but I can't neglect the steak and beef burgers for long!!

Bison tenderloin and ground bison burgers are awesome on the bbq. If you like beef, give bison a try, it's seriously good stuff.

Turkey burgers sound yummy, I'll have to give them a try.

When I lived in Estes Park (CO) I ate lots of bison (OK I won't call it buffalo again:)).

Ostrich prepared well is awesome. The meat can be a little pricey.

Isn't Bison hard to cook? I was reading something the other day and it said you had to cook it just perfectly or else it lost the taste...

Lean Hamburger > Turkey Burger

I eat burgers so little that when I have one I prefer beef.
