Learn to cook the perfect burger

I think that people need to master how long to keep burgers on the grill for to get desired doneness. Ive had to many burgers not cooked the way i asked.

I only use time as a rough guide. The thickness of the burger, the variations in frying pans, the characteristics of different grills and fuels, etc., etc just don't allow for an exact time that always works.

I gently press the burger with my finger for me and DH or the spatula for anyone else. The resilience of the meat tells you how well done it is. I do that for steaks and chops too. It takes practice to learn to recognize how resilient you want the meat.

Good advice from TL. Not cooked the way you asked? I'd suggest doing it yourself, that way you can master the technique and only blame/compliment yourself with the outcome.
