Here are some tips and tricks for making the perfect barbecue on a gas grill.


Use The Best Meat For The Best Gas BBQ

The first step when grilling the perfect hamburger is deciding on whether you want to use ground beef or ground hamburger. Yes, there is a difference. Ground beef is one cut of beef and the included fat. Hamburger is a type of ground beef mixed with fat from other cuts, allowing you to have the perfect balance of meat and fat. The juiciest burgers have a meat-to-fat ratio of 80/20. After you select your meat, you must keep it chilled until the last possible moment. Putting a chilled burger on a grill helps keep the fat intact, keeping the burger juicy as the grill works its magic. 


The perfect size for burgers is seven-to-nine-ounce patties that are an inch thick. It is important to note that burgers will shrink in size as they cook. Making uncooked patties an inch wider than the bun helps ensure a perfect bun-to-patty ratio after grilling. You can season the burgers using salt, pepper, or a rub and then put them back in the fridge for an hour to seal the flavor. 


Grilling The Perfect Burger

As the burgers are chilling, you should put your gas grill on high heat. Some gas grills operate at a higher temperature. If your grill does so, turning the gas to medium-high can help prevent the burgers from burning. Once the grill is hot, you can place the burgers on the grill and cook each side for three to four minutes until they reach a temperature of 160 degrees internally. 


Maintaining Your Grill

The best way to ensure a perfect cook every time is by making sure that your grill is cleaned and maintained regularly. The lifespan of an average gas grill is between five and fifteen years with proper maintenance and cleanings. Scraping away dried grease and food scraps from the grate while the grill is still warm is recommended as a basic clean.
