I tried these awhile back and I think I had the temp too high. What's everyone's best method for cooking burgers indirect? Details would be great as, from some of the posted pics, they look like the ideal burger. Happy New Year to all, thanks in advance for the tips.


  • orion11,[p]Happy New Year! Just my 2 cents, but I think the best burgers are the TREX method, sear high heat, rest 20min, finsih @300 degrees for desired rare/med-rare/med. Keep Smokin, Dana

  • orion11, I do burgers direct or indirect both at about 275. If doing direct just move them around to compensate for the hot spots. Both good. Now I just wish it was really time for a meal. Cheese burgers. Yum.

  • orion11,
    I did burgers Friday as my second cook on my lg egg so I'm no expert by any stretch of the imagination. I asked the same question a few days ago and got several suggestions you can look through the messages and see them, I think it was last Thursday I posted it. Anyway here's what I did, cooked them at around 350 on a raised grid above my platesetter, cooked for 20 min. on one side then flipped and cooked for 15 min. They were great. This is the first time I've given any info usually I'm asking the questions, feels kinda different. Good luck.
