Make The Best Burgers: Tip #1

Always form your patties a little bit larger than the size of the bun you plan to serve them on since they will shrink slightly as they cook. Also, press your thumb into the center of each patty to create an indentation before putting them on the grill. It will help the burgers cook more evenly and not puff up in the middle while cooking.

Make The Best Burgers: Tip #2

Use high heat and only flip the burgers once. Hamburgers shouldn't be overhandled or they won't be as juicy as they should be. Flipping them too frequently won't let the meat juices disperse as well, and definitely do NOT flatten the burgers with your spatula while they are grilling! That just squeezes out all of the juices and you will end up with dry, sad burgers.

Make The Best Burgers: Tip #3

Don't skimp on the buns. Quality buns make a big difference in your burger experience. You can always make your own, or just pick up some good brioche or french buns from the store. And I recommend toasting those buns on the grill during the last few minutes of cooking the burgers.
