Barbecuing a burger is easy to do, but difficult to master. Just practicing this skill means that you get to spend time with your friends and eat a burger when you’re done. It’s a win-win either way.
Prep the Grill
There are other types of fuel besides charcoal, but for the sake of simplicity, we’ll only address charcoal barbecues in this set of instructions.
Grill the Burgers
Be sure to wait until the coals have stopped burning and have started turning white. If you start too early, your burgers will taste like charcoal and lighter fluid.
Enjoy your Burgers
During the 3-5 minute checks, you should be prepping the buns and condiments so that you can serve your burgers as soon as they’re ready. Add whatever toppings and condiments you want and enjoy!
To clean up, wait for the charcoals to completely burn out and turn to ash. This can take several hours. When the grill is cold, you should use a wire brush to scrub the patty residue off of the grill so that it’s ready for next time.
