For the third installment of our In the Kitchen with Foodism video series, we took things outside the studio. The weather might not have been cooperating, but no downpour could dampen our spirits as we fired up the BBQ for our Summer Grilling episode.
Give your grill a glow-up this summer
Making delicious, restaurant-quality burgers doesn't have to be complicated. We've partnered with Traeger Grills to take the guesswork out of barbecuing with their Pro 575 Grill. The original wood-fired grill uses WiFIRE technology to allow you to control cooking from anywhere using the Traeger app. With the ability to adjust temperature and monitor the doneness of your proteins with meat probes, you can host your guests with ease all summer long.
Traeger Grills are easy to assemble and consistently produce moist and delicious meat like burgers and brisket, all the way through to sumptuous sides, veggies and even sandwiches.
Michael Hunter opened Antler Bar & Kitchen back in 2015, but in 2018 the Toronto chef gained international media attention when he butchered a deer leg in the window of his Little Portugal restaurant in response to anti-meat protesters who had been picketing outside for days.
Since then, the hunting enthusiast has appeared on the Joe Rogan Experience podcast, released his debut cookbook, The Hunter Chef Cookbook — and continued to serve the same Canadian cuisine with a focus on wild and foraged food at his Dundas West spot. We invited the outdoorsman to fire up the grill and show us how to make one of his most popular menu items.
Antler Kitchen & Bar's burger has been on the menu since day one and is comprised of venison, wild boar and bison. The flavour combination of all three types of game, combined with smoked cheddar, duck egg aioli and pickles, is a guaranteed way to level up your run-of-the-mill burger this summer.
