If anything was meant for the grill, it’s a burger. There’s no denying that a burger cooked on a grill tastes better than any other way to cook one. However, grilling great burgers is an art. It’s easy to overcook or undercook a burger, leaving it dry or almost raw. 

To get that perfect combo of correctly cooked but still juicy and tender, you need to use a meat thermometer. This allows you to cook your burgers perfectly without having a guess. Stick the thermometer into the side of the burger until it’s halfway through. For beef burgers, the ideal temperature is 160 degrees fahrenheit. Once it reaches this temperature, take it off the grill and let it rest for a few minutes before serving it.

Aside from cooking your burger correctly, you also want to season it. You can use your own preferred combo of seasonings, but there’s no need to make it complicated– salt, pepper, and garlic will do just fine. Season your patties on both sides before you put them on the grill.

Burgers are made even more delicious with toppings. If you’re having friends over, you can make a buffet of toppings, so that they can pick and choose how to dress their burgers. Provide the classic toppings like mayo, mustard, ketchup, pickles, tomatoes, and lettuces. And then, also add in some more unique choices, like bacon, grilled pineapple, mushrooms, bbq sauce, onion straws, and jalapenos. 

You can also add ingredients into your burger for extra flavor, finely chopped onions, peppers, and jalapenos can add texture and spice. Cheese inside your burger can add a melty element to your burgers.

When it comes to your burgers, have fun and be creative! Remember to use a meat thermometer so you can cook your burger just right. And, come to us at Daughtridge Energy in Rocky Mount, NC to get your propane tank and gas grill.
