The Modified Burger 2.0


May 10, 2019

Grilled or Griddled? That is the question that GrillGrates answer in stunning fashion. You can have both! This new technique has us scratching our heads wondering why we hadn't thought of it sooner! You can completely dial in the crust on your burgers to your liking. Not charred but beautifully crusty with flavor and texture you just wont get doing one or the other. Go forth and make your belly happy.


6-8 oz freshly ground beef per burger

Kosher Salt and Freshly Cracked Black Pepper

Burger Bun


Instant Read Thermometer


1Begin by setting your grill up with combination of GrillGrates that are rails up and rails down.

2Preheat your GrillGrates to between 500-600 degrees with the lid of the grill closed.

3Form your burger patties being careful not to overwork the ground beef. Overworking the meat will cause it to become a bit more chewy. They should be at least and inch thick.

4Season each side of the burger liberally with kosher salt and black pepper.

5Place your burger(s) on the preheated rails up GrillGrates and close the grill.

6After about 5 minutes lift and twist the burger to get that coveted crosshatch. Give it another 4-5 minutes before flipping and closing the lid.

73-4 minutes later you may want to start checking the internal temperature your burger with your thermometer.

8Give the burger another lift and twist- it should be getting close to finished now.

9At this point you need to decide how well you want your burger cooked and how much crust you want to get. For a crustier burger get that burger over to flat back side of the grates and give it a 1 or so sear, flip that baby and see what kind of crust you have. Some folks like a little, some folks cant get enough.

10Check the internal temperature of your burger again. Sear as little or as much as you desire. Let the crust be your guide to burger nirvana.

11Like Burger King, with GrillGrates you can have your burger your way. The best of both worlds- flame grilled and griddled!

12Once you have achieved nirvana you may then remove the burger and enjoy the work of art you have just created. Let the buns and condiments be your muse.
