Start your Traeger on smoke and leave the lid open for 4-5 minutes to establish the fire. Lightly form the ground bison into patties. Be sure the make a slight depression in the middle of the burgers to allow for expansion while grilling. Season with Traeger's Prime Rib Rub.
Place your patties directly on the grill and smoke for 25-30 minutes. Take the patties off the grill and turn the heat up to high. If desired, place a cast iron griddle on the grill grate. Close the lid and allow your Traeger to preheat.
Place the patties on the grill grate and cook for 5-7 minutes on each side until patties reach desired doneness. We recommend cooking until an internal temperature of 175 degrees.
During the last few minutes of cooking, top with cheese.
Remove from the grill, assemble burger, and serve. Enjoy!
