Wonderful power packed burger. I am lucky that both Beeffalo & Buffalo are raised in this area and we can buy it fresh in one of our butcher shops. I apologize for taking some liberties with your recipe - I have a favorite Chili sauce that I used instead of making your sauce (sounds great too) and I added onion, mushrooms, cheese, lettuce & tomatoes as condiments. Thanks for a true Saturday Night Live Burger
