A great burger is impossible to resist. It’s juicy and tender, with lots of melty cheese and a perfectly seasoned crust.

That’s the burger we all crave, and in this post, we’re going to discuss exactly how to grill the perfect burger. From what kind of beef is best for burgers to the best burger toppings, I’ll walk you through every step so you never have to eat a bad burger again!

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 (About 450 degrees). 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. They don’t have to be a perfect circle.

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.
