5 Best Tips for Grilling the Perfect Cheeseburger, Connersville, Indiana

The smell of grilling and the sound of the burgers sizzling usually mean it’s the start of summer. While you can grill your burgers to perfection in half the time using a propane grill, make sure the tank is full before getting started. Here are a few tips to help you achieve the perfect cheeseburger this season.

How to Create Cheeseburger Perfection

1. Choose Fresh Ground Meat

Selecting the right type of meat can be overwhelming with the many options for different grades of beef. However, for the perfect cheeseburger, the best type of meat should have at least 15 to 20% fat content to ensure a juicy burger. 

2. Perfect the Shape & Size of the Patty

When packing and molding the patty, the size and shape do matter. Try not to pack the burger too tight, which could lead to dryness. The meat will shrink on the grill, so make the patties slightly larger than the buns before cooking. Finally, put deep thumb indentations in the middle of the patties to prevent burger shrinkage.

3. Pick the Right Seasonings

propanePick seasonings, such as salt and pepper, that will complement the toppings you will be serving. Apply the seasonings generously to both sides of the patties at least two hours before grilling starts. 

4. Be Careful on the Grill

When cooking the meat on a propane grill, ensure that each burger is getting the same heat distribution for even cooking. Try not to press the meat on the grill, which squeezes the juices out of the burger. Instead, use a meat thermometer to check the burger to determine if it is grilled to your temperature choice. 

5. Get the Right Toppings

Allow the cheese to melt fully on the burger while it’s still on the grill, and lightly butter and toast the buns, so they don’t get soggy. Add flare and personality to the burger-making process with the toppings you choose. Consider unique toppings, whether it’s an egg or pineapple, to really impress your guests.
