A Chef's Secret To The Perfect Burger

Unlocking the Ultimate Grilled Burger with Made In Culinary Creative Director Rhoda Boone

Grilling burgers is an art form that requires a combination of skills, practice, and the right tools. However, despite your best efforts, it can be challenging to achieve that perfectly grilled, juicy and flavorful burger.

There are many variables to consider, such as the type of meat, the temperature of the grill, the seasoning, the tools you need and the cooking time, just to name a few. In this post, we will show you the steps needed to make your backyard the next great burger restaurant.

1. Carbon Steel Griddle & Smasher

The first step of perfecting the griddle is making sure you have the right tools. The Made In Carbon Steel Griddle sits on top of your grill or stovetop, creating a flat top surface to sear burgers, smash burgers, grill onions, and toast buns. It also allows you to use butters and fats while cooking your burgers to enhance the flavor. This single grill accessory will change your entire grilling game.

2. Get The Griddle "Ripping Hot"

As Rhoda explains in her tutorial below, the first step is to put the Griddle over high heat on your grill and close the lid, letting the griddle preheat and come up to a high temperature. Don't worry, the Griddle can withstand 1200F, so make sure you get it nice and hot. This will allow you to get that desired crispy outside of the burger while maintaining a juicy inside.

3. Smash Your Burgers Within 30 Seconds

When choosing your burger meat, select grass-fed 80%/20% ground beef. Pack the ground beef into quarter pound, loosely packed balls so you smash the burgers flat on the griddle. After placing the ground beef balls onto your griddle, quickly smash your burgers to sear them. When the juices start to accumulate on the top of your burger, you know it is time to flip (about two minutes per side).
