Man, the Egg makes the best burgers...... pics on this one.  But was watching the third round of the US Open and realized late afternoon/evening we had no dinner plans on a Saturday when we almost always do something on the Egg.  When the round was over, I ran up and got a couple pounds of 85/15, got the Egg fired up, put together six patties and sprinkled on a little DP Cow Lick.   I cooked them at 400* direct for about 3-4 minutes a side, flipped again and shut the Egg down and left them on for about four more minutes, adding some grated cheese with about a minute to go.  This is the same method I've been using for steaks, albeit at a lower temp.  What came of were the most flavorful, juiciest burgers to date according to the panel. 

It still amazes me what the BGE produces.....such a quick and easy cook and there's no chance any gasser could ever turn out the quality of burger we ate tonight.

    Burgers for a quick meal never disappoints on the egg. They are always juicier then a gasser could ever be. I will have to try that method the next time and get the results posted here.

    Although I haven't done very many cooks on the egg yet, I've been reluctant to try burgers. I still have a 35+ year old weber kettle with cast iron grill grates which simply just works for burgers so I'm stuck in the "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" mode. I need to try them on the egg.
