Recipe: Spicy Deer Burgers with Lime Mayo

Spicy Deer Burgers
with Lime Mayo


1/3 C mayonnaise (preferably homemade—see recipes in Basics section)
1 tsp lime juice 
1 tsp Dijon mustard (preferably homemade—see recipes in Basics section) 
1/2 tsp grated lime peel 
2 lbs ground venison 
1/3 C green onions, sliced fine 
2 Tbsp jalapeno peppers, chopped fine 
1 egg 
Salt and pepper, to taste 
8 oz sliced Pepper Jack cheese 
8 good burger buns 
Lettuce, sliced tomato, sliced red onion (for garnish) 

Soak 2-3 hickory chunks in water for 1 hour prior to putting on grill. In small mixing bowl combine mayonnaise, lime juice, mustard and lime peel. Cover and chill. In large mixing bowl combine ground venison, onion, jalapeno peppers, beaten egg, and salt and pepper. Mix well and shape into eight patties and refrigerate. Start charcoal in grill and burn down until gray. Add hickory chunks to hot coals. Grill burgers on sprayed grill 15-18 minutes or until done to your liking. (Try to turn the burgers only once or twice during grilling.) Top each burger with Pepper Jack cheese slice during last 5 minutes of grilling time. Toast buns on grill. Put a lettuce leaf on bottom bun. Add burger and cheese. Top with tomato slice, red onion slice, and a dollop of lime mayo. Serve top bun next to burger on plate.
