The All-American Burger may be easy to grill, but taking it to the next level requires a few basic tips and techniques. According to legendary chef Bobby Flay, it’s best to use lean hamburger meat (or, if you really want to take it to the next level, ground venison), with an 80 percent meat/20 percent fat ratio. This mixture will hold the meat together and prevent it from drying out when grilling, as it does when using leaner meat. Keep meat refrigerated until it’s time to pat into 6-8 oz. then sprinkle the Hi Mountain Seasonings Gourmet Burger Seasoning of your choice over the meat, gently folding it in, then pat patties an inch larger in diameter than the bun, to account for shrinkage when grilling . When grilling, don’t press the burgers down! Doing so will drain all the juicy flavor right away. Add your cheese about a minute before the burgers are done, then let them rest a minute after they come off the grill. This allows time for the juices to redistribute throughout the burger, giving you a more flavorful experience.
