Howdy, pardner! When our son requested a cowboy theme for his birthday party, I planned a Western-style meal including these savory burgers. In the spirit of true chuck wagon fare, I served them on large biscuits rather than buns.

  2. Grill, uncovered, or broil 4 in. from the heat for 5-6 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 160° and juices run clear.
