How to BBQ the perfect burger.

Raw Black River burger on grill

Step #1

Brush grill with vegetable oil and preheat to medium. Place burgers on the grill. After 4 minutes, give the burgers a quarter turn to create those classic crosshatch grill marks.
Tip: Always clean the grate well to ensure the burgers don’t stick. A clean grate will also result in great grill marks.

Step #2

When the juices are rising to the surface and the edges of the burgers become slightly brown, it’s time to FLIP the burgers.
Tip: Only flip the burgers once. This will keep the meat juicy and flavourful.

Step #3

Brush a small amount of burger glaze onto the upturned cooked side, spreading evenly over the surface. After about 3 minutes, give the burger a quarter turn. After another 3-4 minutes check the internal temperature with a thermometer. It should register 160°F (71°C).
Tip: Do NOT press on the burgers while they’re grilling, they’ll lose their flavourful juices.
