I do them on the George Foreman or the electric skillet. I use lean ground chuck, so there isn't much grease.
If you use the skillet, preheat to 350, sprinkle salt in the bottom first. Put in the hamburger patties, sprinkle with S&P, and do not turn until bottom is browned. Once you turn them over, S&P the other side, turn heat down a little, and cover loosely with lid. When you press them and the juices run clear, remove from skillet onto paper towels. Top each burger with a slice of Velveeta and cover with the skillet lid for a few minutes until cheese melts.

Ditto. Due to the structure and purpose of the grill, I'm not so picky as to how lean the meat is. I don't usually go lower then 85/15. I've found the leaner stuff (we can get 96/4) sticks more to the grilling surface, especially the top. 93/7 is a decent cook, IMHO, but I like the flavor the more fat adds. Granted you have to empty the drip pan a time or two, but yummy!

Usually pan fry. Got to get us one of those George Foreman grills one of these days.

We always make out own ground beef however. It is easy to do and we feel safe making the burgers rare, as we like them.

I either cook them on a castiron griddle or the George Foreman grill. Lately, the weather has been nice enough to grill outside, still cold but not snowing.

I pan fry on them both sides until almost cooked to our liking, then topped w/ cheese (or sometimes sauce) and put under the broiler for 2 mintues.
