Grilled Hamburger Recipes
Grilled hamburger recipes are ideal guides for outdoor parties.
Folks who lived in places with cold winter months should haul the outdoor grill out as much as possible to cook under the sun and enjoy the lovely heat.
What could be a better way to celebrate great weather than with an old fashioned charcoal grill and flamed licked hamburgers?
Grilling is a form of quick cooking that involves applying direct heat to the surface of the food. As grilling produces smoke, many people prefer to grill outdoors using an outdoor grill.
Ground chuck is a good cut to make patties destined for the outdoor grill. It has a higher fat percentage, producing a fair amount of smoke on the grill which adds a smoky flavor to your patties.
If you intend to top your burger with cheese, bacon and stuff that have additional fat, then I suggest using leaner cuts.
Grilling may seem simple. Set up your outdoor grill and lay your meat out and watch the flames go. But monitoring the temperature of the grill is important. The heat mustn't be too high or your burgers won't cook evenly. The outside might burn before the middle is done. It isn't okay to eat raw ground beef anymore.
This is what I will do.
- Get your grill going. If you are using an electric grill, set it on high. If you are using a charcoal grill, start the fire and get those charcoal smoking ahead of time
- Place the patties on the hottest part of your grill to sear the outside
- Once you see juices starting to collect at the top of your patties, you can prepare to flip them
- Flip the patties over and let it cook for between 3 to 8 minutes. If your grill has a cover, cover the patties and let the smoke from the grill infuse the patties a little. How long depends on how high the heat is, how big your patties are, and how well-done you want your burgers to be
- A general rule for beef patties is that the internal temperature should reach 160 degree F. Use a food thermometer to check
- Move the patties to the cooler side of your grill, away from the flames and let it rest for a few minutes. You can toast your buns in the meantime
