Ultimate Burger Grill Guide: How to grill the perfect Burger

Though grilling burgers isn’t difficult it does require some basic information to grill like a pro. The ground beef used, some key steps in the burger preparation and grilling and basics like knowing how to check for doneness make all the difference!

Which ground beef to use for grilling burgers

Our Ground beef is the most popular ground beef to use for burgers. The higher fat amount gives great flavor and keeps the burger moist while not being overly expensive.

Maintaining a 15-20% fat content is the perfect target in a ground beef to make a great moist grilled burger. Ground meats can be mixed for different flavors; even combinations like beef and chorizo, beef and ground pork or different types of ground beef. Just keep the fat content in that 15-20% sweet spot!

What to add to the ground beef to make it stick together?

I’ve seen the question ‘what should be added to the ground beef to make the burger stick together?’

The answer is NOTHING! Unlike something like meatloaf or meatballs that require a binder like bread crumbs to stick together, good quality ground beef with the fat content mentioned handled well is all that is need for a perfect grilled burger!

Grill temperature for burgers

Generally, burgers should be cooked on Medium-High (approximately 375 degrees) to High (400 degrees). Most gas grills have a built in thermometer to monitor the heat but you can buy a grill thermometer for charcoal grills too.

How long to cook burgers on the grill

As a rule of thumb, here are the cooking times (beef burgers) for different doneness when cooking over high heat (note: all grills are different so always check with the thermometer):

  • Rare: 4-5 minute total
  • Medium-Rare: 6-7 minutes total
  • Medium: 8-9 minutes total

Excited to open the doors - Just a couple rules we have to implement

Good evening!

We are all very excited to open the doors and see our community family face to face once again!!

Just a few things we need to go over to help make everything run smoothly.
We ask that EVERYONE please wear a mask if at all possible when visiting the store. ** it’s a small space and extra precautions are needed to keep everyone safe
Just a couple rules we have to implement through phase 2:
~ Only 5 customers are allowed in the store at a time, we ask if possible only 1 person per household come shopping...Maybe a good game of rock,paper, sissors to decide who gets to go?
~When entering the store there will be a table set up with hand sanitizer we ask that you use this and the gloves we have provided to shop through the store. This helps keep items through the store more sterile and hopefully reduce contamination from touching.
~ Please refrain from touching products as best you can unless purchasing it, example: the buns on the rack are all the same freshness squeezing multiple packs may lead to bun purchases you may not want.. but we do have the product to go with those buns 😏
~ We ask that you stand back when being served and not lean on or over the counter tops try not to touch, poke or tap the glass as it spookes the meat and may cause stress to your food... it also helps keep the glass as clean as possible for your protection. 😬
~ when shopping keep in mind other customers can be waiting to come in we ask still no casual shopping ... May we suggest trying the get in, get out, we appreciate your business and tell your friends method 😜

Thank you again for your support ,keep practicing safe social distancing and interacting when in public.
Keep Supporting your local shops!

** We are still accepting orders online and will continue to do so indefinitely. Pick ups can now be done inside the store.
