Ahh, I have not had a burger in a long time, today I just fired up the small and I would like some input on how to cook two 1/2 pound burgers. I've never cooked burgers on the eg before.[p]Any ideas before I get started?

    I like mine "au natural"; just formed into patties, sprinkled with salt and pepper and glazed with olive oil. Grill at 400 degrees 5 minutes per side and ENnnn-Joy![p](Now if ya wanna, grilled onions and peppers go real good on burgers...)[p]Ken

    egghead2004,[p]Hamburger is all about the meat. If you can find it get some Black Angus Ground Chuck. I make my burgers 3/4 of an inch thick use liberal amounts of kosher salt and cracked black pepper (just before I place on the grill). I like a hot fire, sear the outside and close up the grill, like a steak. If I cheese them I put the sharp cheddar on 2 min prior to removing frome the grill. I cook my Black Angus to a medium - Medium Rare doneness. With the Black Angus I don't worry about getting sick. The last grocery store hamburger I purchased tasted like Macdonalds. Thank goodness I cooked it well done.
