  • Prepping your ingredients
    You'll want to start up your BBQ grill and set aside your favorite smoking wood for the lamb and Halloumi. This is subjective but most folks will recommend Olive, Apple, or Pecan wood. You can't go wrong with hickory or mesquite if you prefer smokier flavor likewise. Since the halloumi often tastes great with Oakwood, it works great with lamb burgers too. The added mint and herbs will set off the flavor of lamb additionally.
    Start with mixing your minced lamb with all of your herbs, mustard, chili, seasoning, and sun-dried tomatoes. After this, you form these into six individual patties inside an emptied tuna tin with both the top-bottom ring removed. This forms the best-shaped burger form. Place these into the fridge until you're ready to grill.
