Turkey Burgers with Creamy Cucumber Relish


by: Jasmina

Sear bone-in chicken pieces over direct medium heat, waiting patiently for them to release from the grate before trying to turn them. Once the chicken pieces have a nice golden brown color on all sides, move them over indirect heat, where they will roast evenly. By keeping the lid closed as much as possible, you will prevent flareups, you will speed up the cooking time, and you will capture the smokiness that gives grilled food its unique appeal.

1.  To prepare the burgers: In a large bowl, mix the burger ingredients. Lightly wet your hands and shape the mixture into 8 equal-sized balls. Place them on a baking sheet; press down gently to create burgers about 3/4 inch thick. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to grill.

2.  To make the relish: Put the cucumber in a fine sieve and squeeze out the excess moisture. In a medium bowl, mix the cucumber with the remaining relish ingredients. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

3.  Generously brush or spray the burgers with oil on both sides. Grill over Direct Medium heat until just cooked through [cut one burger open to check], 5 to 7 minutes, turning once. Serve burgers warm with the relish spooned over the top.
