Our Foolproof Tips
The Right Beef
The best burgers are made from freshly ground, high-grade chuck beef in an 80/20 mix. Try finding a butcher that grinds fresh meat.
Making the Patties
Gently shape 5-6oz of meat into patties just until they hold together and thick enough so they will pick up a grill flavor without overcooking. The patty should be about 1-inch thick.
Cool the Patties
Chill your patties in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour before you grill them. They will hold together better and cook more evenly.
The Secret Tip
Make an indentation in the center of each patty with your thumb to help its shape will cooking.
Never press down on a burger with a spatula when it is on the grill. By pressing down you push out the flavorful juices.
