For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍

The Char-Broil Gas2Coal BBQ is pretty special, in that it runs on gas and on charcoal. So you can get that lovely smokey flavour, without any of the effort that usually goes into starting a charcoal BBQ.

    1. Hi Harriet
      If it’s not barbecue weather, these are best cooked under the grill, using the same timings as for the barbecue method. 🙂

    1. Hi Claire
      If the turkey mince was raw when defrosted, you can freeze it now it’s been cooked. When you want to defrost the burgers, do it in the fridge overnight, then reheat thoroughly until piping hot.
