Venison Burgers on the Grill

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Char-Broil for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is finally the time of year when I get a little break from cooking and cleaning because it is grilling season. My husband is known for his delicious grilling recipes and when he lights the grill everyone knows they are in for a treat.

He has been making tasty burgers grilled to perfection for as long as I can remember and he has now mastered Venison Burgers too!

I love the flavor charcoal gives to meats when grilled just right and no matter how hard I try, I just can not replicate the flavor inside my kitchen.

A big part of achieving the smoked flavor is using the perfect grill. The new Char-Broil Kettleman Grill makes it easy to create the perfect balance of charcoal flavor thanks to the porcelain-enameled cooking grate. It allows the perfect flavor to come through while keeping troublesome flare-ups away.


The large dampers help with temperature control and the wires in the charcoal grate are spaced closer together so you don’t have to worry about losing charcoal until all of the energy is gone.

That makes our Venison Burgers much easier to cook and because it’s designed to cook as twice as many burgers with the same 50 briquettes as the leading brands, you can afford to invite friends and family over to enjoy this tasty recipe!

The first step is to mix your venison with beef, since deer meat is so lean, this allows the burgers to get that delicious texture and flavor. About 75% Venison to 25% Beef is a good mixture to work with.

Then make your patties ensuring that they are flat enough to cook evenly but not too thin because you will lose all the juicy goodness!

We sprinkled the tops with Lawry’s Seasoning salt, about a quarter teaspoon per burger, and about the same of garlic powder and onion powder as well.

Cook these delicious burgers on the new grill from Char-Broil and it is sure to come out as perfect as ours. You can purchase from Lowe’s or online at for the awesome price of only $129 and start reaping the benefits of more control over temperature, flare-ups, and even clean up.

  1. I love venison. I love it so much, I don’t even have to mix it with beef. It is SO good.

    • Mixing it with beef isn’t so much for the flavor as much as making it stick together better and helps it shrink down a little bit. If you try to make a patty with straight venison it seems to fall apart. I use straight venison for everything except burgers, I love it too.
