About This Smokey Wild Turkey Club Burger Recipe This method of baking the turkey patties first allows the burgers to gently come to temperature without overcooking the outside and over drying the inside. Although fully cooked, your turkey burgers will remain moist. I prefer to grind meat right before cooking, rather than using frozen pre-ground meat. But if pre-ground is all you have and you need to thaw it, you may find that your turkey meat will be quite wet and difficult to form, depending on how the ground meat was stored. I have also use paper towels to gently pat the ground meat dry. If you’re still having trouble, mix in ¼ cup of breadcrumbs to add more body to the meat.
