Learn how to make the best burgers on the grill!

For something as ubiquitous and common as the hamburger, it sure can be tricky to get it just right. I’ll walk you through every step so you never have to eat a bad burger again!

In this post, we’re going to discuss exactly how to grill the perfect burger.

Prep Time: 5 Min

- 1.5 pounds 80/20 ground beef - Salt and pepper or burger seasoning

Cook Time: 10 Min


Step 1

Preheat your grill to medium high heat. If you’re using a charcoal grill, arrange the coals so you’ll have one high heat zone for cooking and one low heat zone, so you can move the burgers if there are flare ups.

Step 2

Shape the patties. Use your hands to gently form the burgers into 5 balls of roughly equal size. Burger patties shrink during cooking, so make your patties slightly larger than the size of your buns.

Step 3

Indent. Use your thumb to press an indent into the center of each burger. Give them a generous sprinkling of seasoning on both sides.

Step 4

Grill. Place burgers directly on the grill and grill for 4-5 minutes per side, flipping only once. Add cheese for the last minute if desired.
