    • Sprinkle half the rub on the bottom of the Burger Master
    • Save the other half for the top layer
  • Push all 2# of ground turkey into the burger master and flatten, season the top layer
  • Place the cover on the burger master and push firmly to form the burgers
  • Store in the fridge for 4 hours, or overnight if desired, this will help set the burgers and let the seasoning soak in
  • Pre-heat Grill to 400-425 degrees
    • For added flavor, chicken may be smoked by adding a smoker tube or smoker box to your grill. Use smoking chips to provide as light or as heavy as preferred while grilling

  • Sear on the first side for 3-4 minutes, open the lid, and using a spatula turn over the turkey burger to the second side
  • Close the lid and cook for 3-4 minutes
  • After the final turn, using your instant-read digital thermometer, start to check the internal temp of Turkey
  • Once the temp reads 160 Degrees, you are fully cooked
