I think grilling is almost always superior to flat top. Not only is it tastier but it sears out all the fat. While making them taste great.

For me it's the grill. I don't like cooking meats when they are laying in fat unless I'm doing stir-fry at super-hot temps. It seems to make the meat too greasy for me.

Plus, the smoke that is created by the juices dripping into the fire adds so much to the flavor of the meat.

You say fat, I say the meat's own juices.
I prefer bacon drippings over bacon grease, too

+1 for grill so long as it's done right (no hockey puck burgers for this girl), though I do like both and I love pan drippings for use in gravey. As mentioned before, it's difficult to collect drippings from a grill.

Tip to all burger cookers, or even steak or shop cookers in pan; Cook both sides with a lid on until just rare. If browning ground beef, cook with lid on until grey. Open lid and pour off juices. Complete cooking with the lid off to brown the meat to your liking. Place juices in the fridge. When fat has solidified, lift of and scrape any jell back into the bowl. Throw the fat away. Now you have collected the juices that would otherwise escape into the air as steam.

I enjoy both, but prefer a charcoal grilled burger the best. As that juice (fat!!) hits the charcoal and comes back up as smoke, the flavor can't be matched.

Any excuse to fire up the grill.
