  3. Grill venison sliders on hot grill. These venison sliders will cook fast, within about 5 minutes. Pull them off the grill as soon as they’re no longer pink.
  4. Serve each venison slider on a Hawaiian bun with mayonnaise, a slice of cheese, a Vidalia onion slice, bacon (if using), shredded lettuce, a tomato slice, and BBQ sauce.
