Sunday BBQ: Classic Hamburgers

I can't believe we've done two months of Sunday BBQ recipes and haven't even discussed the perfect hamburger. Well, it's time to stop dilly-dallying and time to get grilling! For a classic all-time-favorite burger,

Tip: When making patties, don't overwork the meat. The heat from your hands may turn the meat into a bland mound.

All-Time-Favorite Hamburger
From Food & Wine Magazine, July 2007

3/4 pound ground chuck, about 80 percent lean
3/4 pound ground sirloin, about 90 percent lean
Vegetable oil
Salt and freshly ground pepper
4 kaiser rolls or hamburger buns, split and toasted
Fixins (ie: tomatoes, cheese, ketchup, mustard, relish, lettuce, etc.)

1. Light a grill. In a bowl, mix the ground meats and gently form into four 4-inch patties, about 1 1/2 inches thick. Make a 1/2-inch-deep indentation in the center of each patty, then rub lightly with the oil and season generously with salt and pepper. Grill the burgers over high heat, turning once, about 6 minutes for medium-rare; transfer to the buns, top with relish, tomatoes, lettuce and serve.

we have stuffed ours with cheddar cheese and Jalapenos. We have also done a bacon cheese burger with the cooked chopped bacon and cheese in the center, then baste it while cooking with good BBQ sauce. Yummy

This summer we've been making inside out cheeseburgers(hmmm Tillamook Sharp Cheddar!) or sticking a pat of butter in each burger before grilling both are quite tasty! The indent really does make a difference!
