Buffalo is very similar to beef, same meaty texture but it has less fat and a rich, bold flavor.

Use your favorite BBQ sauce or try this easy Honey BBQ sauce recipe or a Blueberry BBQ sauce.



  • 3 lbs ground buffalo
  • 1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
  • 6 slices of Monterey Jack Cheese
  • 6 leaves lettuce
  • 6 slices onions
  • 6 slices tomato
  • 6 sesame seed buns


  1. Heat grill to about 400 degrees F.
  2. Divide the ground buffalo into 12 equal portions (about a 1/2 lb each) and shape into patties. Do not overwork the meat.
  3. Cook over direct heat until the meat is barely pink in the middle and the juices run clear, about 145 degrees F for medium.
  4. Toast buns on grill.
  5. Top 6 burgers with cheese.
  6. Place one patty on the bottom half of the bun and top with BBQ sauce.
  7. Add the second patty and add the top of the bun.
  8. Serve with lettuce, onion, and tomato, if desired.

Recipe Notes


Buffalo contains much less fat than hamburger, so when cooked the meat can become drier, you may want your buffalo burgers to be slightly rarer than hamburgers to increase the moistness of the meat.
