I will be grilling appox 50 burgers, plus other items this weekend for my grandkids' Hawaiian themed birthday party so something like this will save me a lot of time. Most of the burgers will be topped with grilled fresh pineapple as well.
These 1/4 lb frozen patties come 32 to a box for about $22 which comes out to about $2.75/lb. Good deal if they're tasty as many reviewers stated.
My only caveat with grilling a large numbers of burger patties is that be careful of drippings causing a rather spectacular grease fire. Guess how I know this?

Yes, thanks. Actually, I'm thinking of hauling my 36" propane flat top griddle to the party and doing all my grilling on that. I'll use their Weber charcoal grill to smoke moink balls and bacon wrapped pineapple appetizers.

And on second thought I may just pick up 10+ lbs of 80/20 ground beef at Sam's Club. I can form them during the week and freeze them for the party.

When I went shopping at the beginning for the month, I bought about five pounds of hamburger. I made some Juicy Lucy 'bergers for the freezer. They all have a slice of cheese and small pat of butter in the middle . They weigh in at about half of pound. I had one yesterday. YUM!

Most of the year I grill under a covered porch and can't have any big flare ups. I have gotten used to grilling most things in disposable pans and trays with a smoke box for flavor.

If the food doesn't come in contact with the grates, where are the crust and grill makes coming from? I tend to bank my coals to one side to create a hot and cool zone or place a drip pan directly under the food, particularly when using a modified snake method with the rotisserie.
