1. Preheat grill to medium.
2. Place meat, rice, cheese, 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce, paprika, mustard, garlic, pepper and salt in a large bowl. Gently combine, without overmixing, until evenly incorporated. Form into 4 equal patties, 1/2 to 3/4 inch thick.
3. Combine the remaining 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce, mayonnaise, relish and horseradish in a small bowl.
4. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the burgers until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the center registers 155°F, 5 to 6 minutes per side.
5. Assemble the burgers on buns with the barbecue mayonnaise sauce, tomato and onion.


Tips: Be sure to plan ahead for cooking the wild rice”it takes 40 to 50 minutes. To cut down on cooking time, look for "quick" wild rice a whole-grain rice that cooks in less than 30 minutes”or "instant" wild rice that's done in 10 minutes or less.


To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to spray the food with cooking spray.
