 Having a barbecue is the best way to take advantage of the warm temperatures during this summer and you definitely want to include hamburgers in the menu. Although this may seem like an easy task, there are certain details that can make your burgers taste better.  For this reason at Great Harvest in Tulsa, we would like to share useful advice on this topic. 

Choosing the Right Meat

You should invest in fresh and quality meat as it is the main ingredient. Also, it’s recommended that the meat contains 15-20% fat for a richer flavor and prevent the meat from drying. Some of the most commonly used cuts in hamburgers are ground round and chuck. 

Creating the Patties

Keep in mind that you should never overwork the meat while creating the patties, otherwise you will remove the fat, which will make your burgers dry and chewy. You should gently shape ¾ inch-thick patties and stick to salt and pepper to season them. 

Cooking the Meat

You should use medium-high heat to cook your patties and avoid pressing the meat with a spatula, as it will remove its juices. Using a thermometer is the best and inexpensive way to check your burger’s doneness; keep in mind that  the suggested cooking temperature should be around 150 degrees for medium well. 

It’s no secret that summer is the perfect time to enjoy outdoor activities along your friends and family, so be sure to follow these simple ideas next time you are barbecuing as they will make your hamburgers even more delicious.
