Yesterday we had the family over for Labor Day dinner. It was a feast. I did the easy part: Burgers and brats on the grill. (Especially easy since we went with pre-cooked brats).
I fired up the grill and put the burgers and brats on. I got the ground beef from Jungle Jim's. It was 85/15. That's the maximum fat I'm allowed, and the minimum fat needed to get some really good flames going on the grill. I like the grill to look like a Burger King commercial. And by that I mean one of the old ones where they showed fire. I don't dress up like the creepy king.
I use a hand press to make the patties. I press half the patty down, then add some garlic and Worcestershire sauce. I add the top half of the patty and press it again.
That's pretty much it. Not much of a secret when you get right down to it.
