These burgers turn out perfectly juicy and tender every single time!



2 pounds 80/20 ground beef

33 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt


  1. Preheat grill to high.
  2. Divide ground beef into six – 1/3 pound servings. Gently roll into balls. Gently press into patties that are about 25% larger than your buns. Make a 2 inch wide dimple in the center of each patty. 
  3. Do not salt the patties until right before you put them on the grill. 
  4. Salt generously on both sides of the patties, and place on the hot grill. Close the lid and cook for 4-5 minutes. Flip and cook for 2-5 minutes longer depending on how you like your burgers. 2 minutes will have a pink interior and 5 will be well done. 


You can make these patties ahead of time, cover them well, and store them in the fridge for up to 2 days before grilling. Remember, don’t salt them until right before grilling.
