    Default Lamb Burger V.S. Bison Burger


    I grilled both burgers. First off, New Zealand lamb burgers. I have to tell you in all my years of grilling, lamb burgers are the WORST smelling meat I've ever grilled. They smell like sweaty feet and ass from a gym locker. Juices and BLOOD drips everywhere as it sizzles and ignites flames throughout the whole process. When I placed the patties on the buns blood still streamed all over the plate like a stuck pig even though the patty was cooked all the way through. The taste was fairly bland. Regular beef is better than this. Now, I have to tell you that the box recommended the lamb patties be seasoned with salt. But I don't believe in seasoning meat. So, the final word: Lamb burgers are a no-go.


    Bison burgers, on the other hand, are the best tasting burgers I've ever grilled--period. Better than beef burgers, better than fully seasoned beef burgers. Better than even, dare I say it, Boca Burgers. There is no aroma while grilling but and very little blood. But juices flow from the patties like water from a babbling brook. For this reason I decided to get them off the grill as soon as possible--About 8 to 10 minutes both sides. The Bison patties for the most part maintained their integrity throughout grilling and during construction. The taste, though, is out of this damn world. The cleanest, softest, grease free meat I've ever had. Final word: Lamb burgers forever more.


    NOTE: Burger images used above were borrowed from the internet and not actual images of my burgers. Nevertheless, my burgers were comparably dressed with the standard lettuce, tomatoes, and vidalia onion rings on a sesame seed bun. No cheese on either.

    Haven't had the lamb but have had bison burgers a few times and no matter who cooked them they were delicious. They sort of taste similar to beef but with an amazing amount of flavor. They have a gamey taste comparable to the difference between wild boar and pork. I would stick with the bison, yum yum.

    The gamey taste of Bison is not quite as bad as, say, Deer. Deer is completely repulsive--Like a punch in the face.

    Bison burgers are awesome... Though I disagree on the subject if seasoning. A little salt and pepper, or a little seasoned salt... Really kicks the meat up a notch.

    I see what you mean. I definitely know how to season. But my point is if it's vacuum sealed and coming out of a box it should have all it needs. Some Kikkoman soy sauce would have brought that lamb to life. But I'm just not going to go through the trouble especially since bison is just so much better in so many ways.

    Buffalo/Bison is great, ground or steak...fresh ground pepper, sea salt...mmmhhmmmm.

    Ground Lamb I usually only mix in with other stuff for burgers- pork, beef, etc.

    Later in life when I can afford it, Bison and ostrich will be the only animals I eat.

    Lamb has a very fine line. Not done properly and it's terrible. When it is done right though, it's what beef wishes it tasted like.

    I've had both meats in a burger and love them both. Never had an issue.
