Maybe, maybe not. Bean burger patties have a reputation for being rather crumbly.

Part of your success will hinge on your ability to get bean burger patties to bind sufficiently, something this recipe's author mentions.

The other major factor is your skill in flipping burger patties. There are people who are good at this, there are others who are mediocre, there are others who are terrible (I've been to a lot of tailgates, picnics, etc. to have seen the gamut). The right tool helps (a really wide spatula) but I've seen people mangle patties with the right tool, so it's definitely not just the equipment.

It's really your call.

For sure, a wood-fired grill is going to add some smokiness to the burger that simply cannot be duplicated on a stovetop.

Good luck.

You could try putting the patties in a fish basket or between 2 wire racks wired together, so you turn the whole basket/rack assembly rather than individual patties, and it might help keep the patties together, if you are gentle...
