10 Steps to the Perfect Cheeseburger

1. Make the perfect patty
The patty is arguably the most important element of your delicious burger, so take your time to get it right. Firstly, we recommend using a high quality ground chuck. As it is fattier than other meat cuts (and fat = flavor) it will give you a juicier and tastier burger. Choose an 85/15 or 80/20 lean-to-fat ratio for best results. Next, think carefully about stuffing. Cold cheese and butter neatly stuffed inside the burger tastes amazing, just make sure that any inclusions are fully enclosed in the patty to avoid any flare-ups on the grill. Whether you stuff the patty or not, avoid over-handling it as this can leave it dry and tough, and always add a little dimple to the top. This helps the patty retain its nice, round shape.
