IHOP may have flipped their name to IHOb and added new burgers to the menu, but you won't find these 10 juicy, mouthwatering venison burgers at their rebranded restaurants 

Earlier this month, the beloved IHOP restaurant chain announced they were changing their name to IHOb (the "b" is for "burgers") because their new burger offerings are so great. Well, we checked out IHOb's new menu and while the burgers do look tasty, we can assure you none of them are juicy venison burgers.

Lucky for you, we've compiled a list of our 10 favorite recipes for over-the-top venison burgers. Now you can make delicious venison burgers at home with the recipes below and continue to go to IHOb for their pancakes.
