Cooking burgers on a skillet?

So, our family recent purchased a cast iron skillet, and I'm loving it so far. I was just wondering how cooking burgers on it would be. Would it be better to just stick to a frying pan, or would it be better to use the skillet? Thanks in advance.

To cut down on stove spatter we do our 6 oz burgers in a flaming hot uncovered CI dutch oven for about 3-4 minutes on each side.

We love cooking steaks and burgers on our skillet. All we do is put it on the heat and let it get smokin hot then before adding the meat sprinkle with kosher salt add your meat let it alone til it releases. Then enjoy,

If you're cooking 'on it' I guess it's a griddle or grill. Most common meaning of skillet is a frying pan; but I guess English is a living, ever changing, language.

I use a splatter screen on my cast iron skillet... and I love the use of it for hamburgers! I even use a small 6" one that holds just a single patty. The cast iron seems to give them a better crust to the meat than an ordinary skillet.

I am not a fan of doing my burgers on the stove top as I would rather just walk outside and go to the grill even if that means shoveling a path. If I were to cook it inside though then I would absolutely grab my CI skillet.

I did burgers in my CI skillet last night because it was just too darn cold to walk across the deck to the grill.

SO and I discussed the two cooking methods and decided we didn't care whether the burgers were done in a skillet or on the grill.
