Heat the butter in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onions, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.
Cook onions, stirring occasionally until golden, about 20 to 25 minutes. Add the sugar to the pan and remove from heat.
Add the bourbon to the onions and carefully ignite with a long match. Allow flames to die out and then continue to cook until the onions are glazed, about 2 minutes. Allow to cool and season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Break the bison up in a large bowl and season with salt and pepper, to taste. Divide meat and form into eight 4” patties.
When ready to cook, set temperature to High and preheat, lid closed for 15 minutes. For optimal results, set to 500℉ if available.
Grill burgers 5 minutes per side. The last 2 minutes of cooking, add the cheese to melt and place buns cut side down to toast.
Remove burgers and buns from grill and assemble. Start with the bottom bun, then a burger patty. Add some bourbon onions, another burger patty, more bourbon onions, lettuce, tomato and the top bun.
Serve with condiments of your choice. Enjoy!
