Grilled Burger Recipe. You owe it to yourself to try a hamburger done right.

Why try? You owe it to yourself to try a hamburger done right. Top it with whatever pleases you, but don’t over do it – you won’t want to cover up the great flavors of the beef.

Foodie Byte: 80/20 and 90/10 are the labels on beef that describe the ratio of protein to fat in that particular cut of beef. The important part in a burger is quality and using the right combination of beef. You want flavor and texture but don’t want too much fat, so by using two types of beef you can achieve the perfect hamburger.
