Coal PreparationFor this operation we are going to want to have intense heat for a period of 7-15 minutes. The coals should be such that to produce intense heat either fresh charcoal with small uniform pieces. Saturate individual coals thoroughly with fluid from the lighter tin. Wait 1 to 2 minutes, then re-saturate and light. How hot the coals get depends on the many factors such as available oxygen which can be relatively low in the mountain tops with no wind and relatively high by the sea with high winds.
Cooking InstructionsPrepare the patties by impregnating the ground turkey meat with the garlic powder, onion power, and pepper. Make patties ~3.5" in diameter. Place burger patties on grill. Cook thoroughly. Remember flip and rotate 90 degrees for grill marks.
Garnish and ServeAfter the burgers are cooked on both sides, pinch (not sprinkle) paprika onto the turkey burger patties as to create contrast of the bright red against the almost whitish meat colored background. Place a few strands of dill followed by a few cloves of cilantro on each patty.
Serve on a bun (which can be toasted on the hobogrill if desired) with slices of tomato and cheese.
