- Turn your gas grill to a medium-high temperature. You don't want your grill bursting with flames. Using a charcoal grill, ensure your coals are medium hot, without any visible flames.
- Bring patty directly from refridgerator to put on grill, so the patty does not fall apart while eating.
- Season your patty with salt and pepper, not too heavy on both sides. Let your seasoned patty sit for a few minutes.
- Clean the grill with a brush to remove any grease from previous grilling.
- To keep the patty from sticking to the grates, oil your patty. You can also oil your grates, but the easier method is to oil your patty with a vegetable spray before it goes onto the grill. Do not spay a vegetable spray directly on the grill grates; they will burst into flames.
- Place your patty on the grill.
- Keep it on one side for 3-5 minutes while you check for any blood rushing up. Once it is done, flip it to the other side and let it sit for another 30-40 seconds.
- To measure the doneness of your patty, use a meat thermometer. Put your thermometer on the side of the patty. You want to reach 115 - 120°F for medium rare and around 130°F for medium. For a full doneness chart, click here.
- Take your patty off the grill and let it rest for about 5 minutes to relax the proteins and reabsorb all the juices.
- Add any condiments you would like and enjoy.
