Top with olive oil, butter, salt, and pepper, wine, and toss together. Close foil tightly, placing 3-5 small holes in the top of the foil. Place on grill for 8-12 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender and the onions clear. Then remove. To make the patties, combine the ground chuck, buffalo meat, mushrooms, onions, wine, salt, and pepper in large bowl, and mix well. Separate meat mixture into six equal portions and shape into patties. To grill patties, clean preheated grill rack with vegetable oil, and place the patties on grill, flipping once after approximately 3-4 minutes. Grill additional 4-8 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. Place one slice of cheese on each patty before removing from grill. To grill buns, butter and place on grill until lightly toasted. Then remove. To assemble burgers, spread generous amounts of zippy mayo on top buns.
