  1. Grate the zest from the lemon, lime, and orange into a large bowl. Squeeze the juice from half of each piece of fruit into the bowl. Whisk in 1 tablespoon barbeque sauce. Stir in ground beef; mix well. Cover and refrigerate for 10 to 30 minutes.
  2. Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Form meat into patties. Grill with lid open, about 3 minutes per side. Brush each burger with one tablespoon barbeque sauce during grilling, coating both sides. Top burgers with pepperjack cheese and cook until cheese is melted and meat is no longer pink in the center, about 1 additional minute.

These were OK but we felt this had way tooooo much juice in it.

I followed the recipe exactly and the burgers fell apart on my grill. Some sort of binder (like an egg) is needed to hold them together. Great flavor though and unusual for a burger.

This is awesome!! Bison makes a super yummy (and healthier) alternitive to beef. This is a great recipe as it is easy to adjust according to one's taste. Will make again for sure!
