How to make perfect burgers

Whether you’re starting with fresh or frozen burgers, barbecuing success comes down to temperature, texture and timing.

Steps to success

  1. Cook fresh or frozen beef patties on greased grill at medium BBQ temperatures between 190°C to 230°C (375°F to 450°F). Go to hotter temperatures to develop a little crunchy crust, especially on fresh burgers.
  2. Frozen patties do not need thawing, and should be cooked from frozen. This also helps reduce sticking to grill.
  3. Flip occasionally for even browning. Do not press down on patties during cooking or juices could be squeezed out, resulting in dry burgers.
