How To BBQ A Mouth-Watering Classic All Beef Burger

Classic All Beef Burger

Nothing says summer grilling than an all beef burger, cooked to perfection and topped with your favourites. It doesn’t have to be a complicated affair either. This recipe proves that a great barbecue burger is easy to make.

Makes 8 burgers

Prep time: 15 minutes

Rest time: 1 hour

Cook time: 8 minutes


2 lb ice-cold regular ground beef chuck

1 tbsp. kosher salt

1½ tsp black pepper, freshly ground

Nonstick cooking spray

8 plain hamburger buns

¼ cup butter, melted

Crisp hand-leafed iceberg lettuce

Red ripe beefsteak tomatoes, sliced

Red onion, sliced



Place the ice-cold regular ground beef in a large bowl. Season with kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Mix until well combined.

Form into eight 4-oz patties as uniform in size as possible. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour to allow the burgers to rest.

Preheat grill to medium-high, 450–550°F (230–280°C).

Spray burgers lightly on both sides with nonstick cooking spray.

Grill burgers for 4 to 5 minutes per side, for medium-well done burgers that are still moist and juicy.

Brush burger buns with melted butter and grill, cut-side down, until crisp and golden brown.

Bun bottom, burger, lettuce, tomato, red onion, bun top. Garnish with your favorite burger toppings and serve with a pickle.

TIP: Don’t squish your burger when cooking!  (At least not before eating!) It makes for a dry and crumbly mess.
