For juicy, melt in your mouth burgers, choose meat that isn’t too lean – select ground chuck, sirloin, chicken, pork, lamb or turkey that is 85 to 90 percent lean. Our beef is ground fresh daily from whole roasts and steak trimmings and is sold only on the day that it is ground.
To seal in the juices and create a perfectly charred exterior, cook your burgers over high heat. To make sure your burger is fully cooked – use a meat thermometer. Most burgers should reach 160ºF (170ºF for turkey or chicken burgers).
Resist the urge to flip and flatten those burgers – doing so will result in a tough, dry patty. Instead, cook burgers until they're halfway done, then flip once.
