Summer is the best time to go through your freezer and take inventory of wild game. There is usually lots of ground meat, and if you aren’t going through larger cuts, you can make more hamburger.
Burger rolls are easy to make and if you don’t like blue cheese, feel free to stuff with your preferred type. If you use a hard cheese, like cheddar, just grate the cheese before adding it to the roll. Feel free to try mustard, relish, pickles, and onions in the roll to customize your signature log.
Tip: To prevent flareups from the bacon, place the elk roll on the top rack in your barbecue and use a drip tray under it. If you use a smoker, the long, slow cooking process will add flavour, and the bacon renders slowly meaning it doesn’t flare.
