For the juiciest grilled burger with the optimal char, try this trick.
Ever notice how burger patty centers grow/inflate? To keep the burger bun-ready, we flatten them with the spatula to keep them in a flat and even burger shape, but lose the natural juices in the process. Stopping this juice-robbing center inflation leading to spatula flattening is simple.
Before cooking burgers on the grill, create/poke a smaller than dime sized hole in the center of the raw patty. Instead of inflating up, the burger will meld inward to cook into a solid, even finished, very juicy patty.
