My (2) New Burger Secrets ... What Are Yours???

Recently when making hamburgers for the grill, I either sprinkle them with Seasoned Salt OR I have also marinated them in Teriyaki marinade. Each of the tips make them quite tasty!!! (Note: I top the Teriyaki Burgers with grilled pineapple) ... Do you have any burger (or grill) secrets??? /rayt721

When making hamburgers;
I mix the meat with A little soy sauce, salt, pepper, liquid smoke, and just A dallop of steak sauce, and sometimes ketchup. I make this for my kids, otherwise I would add A big pinch of cayenne pepper to it. Cayenne pepper adds A whole new flavor to almost any food!
I don't smash the meat together when I mix it. Makes it tough.

I don't know where you get your hamburger from, but where I get mine, it doesn't come seasoned (I'm sooo sick of that Emril)!

Hey! You all beat me to this one. I was going to ask about great burger boosters. I usually make a little over one pound of ground sirloin (90% lean) for 4 burgers and add 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce, 1/2 teaspoon of each: onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, salt and pepper. I put them on a very hot skillet and turn them only once, about 5 minutes on each side. While you're cooking the burgers, throw in a few onion rings to cook until tender. I add the cayenne pepper at the end on mine cause the kids don't like them spicey. They're incredible! Any other burger booster ideas that are to die for?

We like to mix a little Obie Cue Beef & Brisket rub in the hamburgers.

Also adding some Jack Daniels wood chunks gives them nice flavor as well.

When I feel like making "special" burgers...ok they aren't that special here is what i do....

Pound of burger, seasoning salt, garlic cloves minced, onion chopped, oregano, egg, finely crushed crackers....mix together. When making your patties, take some shredded cheddar and stuff in the middle.....grill till done....add BBQ sauce if you wish.....and ENJOY

I firmly belive that its not what ya put in the burger, but what you put on top of it.
Sure.... one needs to put the right stuff in a burger, but the grade of meat and what is ON the burger is the turning point to me.

Sushi, I agree completely. For us, burgers need to come from cows close by. We buy all our meat from 4H kids and let me tell you...the beef is beyond description. Tender and flavourful. When I make burgers I don't put much stuff into them. Sometimes I buzz an onion in the food processor to toss into the meat, but more often than not I just toss in an egg and call it done. I was chatting with someone last night and told her that I think I am a meat snob. :oops: Because I live in the heart of ranch country all my meat is very fresh and very good. We only ever "grill" our meat since to do otherwise would mean we had a crappy piece of beef or pork. So, to me...you don't need to add anything to burgers to make them yummy...just plain ole meat!
