Have you ever had a llama burger? These instructions will teach you how to make the perfect llama burger with a little bit of a kick. Anyone can enjoy a tasty burger on a hot summer day, but it’s time to break away from the usual. Instead, you need to try a Ragin’ Llama Burger.

Llamas are South American camelids. This means they are in the same family as camels. Llamas originated in North America millions of years ago but migrated to South America. Today, they have slowly made their way back to North America. With an estimate of 100,000 llamas currently in the United States, they are considered to be used as pack animals. Llamas are also being used for another purpose and that is meat. Llama meat is currently a rarity, much like buffalo meat, but you can find llama meat at meat lockers in states like Texas, Oklahoma, and even South Dakota.  You are encouraged to try the meat of an increasingly growing farm animal in North America.

The following instructions will help you break out of the norm and try the meat from llamas. Anyone with past cooking and grilling experience can make a llama burger. With this 10 minute preparation guide and 15 minutes of grilling time, you will taste a spicy llama burger in no time.

Step 1: Prepare the Meat

1. Thaw the frozen llama meat.

    Note: 1 lb of hamburger will make 6 good size patties.  If your meat is already thawed then disregard this step.

2. Pull the meat apart and place into a bowl or on a plate.

    Note: This is done to evenly spread the peppers throughout the meat.
