Best Homemade Grilled Burgers

Best Grilled Burgers

My hubby makes the best grilled burgers  

It was a lazy summer day without any plans other than to relax by the pool, so I made these Easy Homemade Hamburger Buns and my hubby grilled his incredible perfect burgers. He’s been making them for years, so I don’t need to reinvent the wheel and put my spin on them. Or, at least no yet.  

How to grill a hamburger

Grillin & Chillin

How would you like your burger? 

That’s the question one usually asks when grilling burgers for guests. One of my hubby’s favorite stories is from a time when his youngest daughter (who was in high school at the time) had a pool party. He grilled burgers, and I made Pasta Salad for her friends. He asked everyone how they like their burgers. I think everyone wanted them medium except one guest. She said, “burn it”.  What? She reiterated, just when you think it’s done, keep cooking it”. She went on to mention that NOBODY ever cooks it long enough and so, she would understand if he didn’t either. He (against his better judgment) cooked that poor little beef patty until it barely resembled a hamburger as we know it anymore.  But, much to her surprise (and his), she said it was the best burger she ever ate! I’m pretty sure Pepé just passed out from the thought of it, but you don’t have to overcook your burgers unless you want to, and I really don’t recommend it either.

    Divide meat for patties
  • Roll into balls then flatten into patties much bigger than your buns so when they shrink during grilling process, they don’t end up too small. These are about 5 inches (12.7 cm) in diameter and about 1/2 inch (1.27 cm) thick.
