On the pre-heated and oiled grill, place the patties with small gaps from each one. Don’t press the patties as this will squeeze out the moisture and fat from the meat.
As the burgers are searing, close the lid of the grill (if there’s any) and avoid opening it until the next step.
After 4 or 5 minutes, flip the burger to grill the other side. Again, don’t press the patty.
You can re-flip the patties one more time if it’s not yet golden brown. Also, you may need to cook longer if you have a thicker burger.
A few minutes before the patties become fully cooked, you can now apply the optional burger glaze. If you prefer cheese, place the slices one minute before removing the patties from the grill. This will give the right melt.
After placing the cheese, toast the buns on the grill as the patties are on the last phase of grilling. We love buttering our burger buns since it adds a smooth kick on every bite. Still, the choice is yours.
Once everything is cooked, turn off the grill and start placing the burgers into the buns. You can also add tomato slices, lettuce, and more fillings that you love.
Don’t take a bite just yet! Let the burgers rest for a minute. It will let the juices redistribute throughout the patties to achieve the perfect burgers on gas grill. If you eat it right away, the juices will just stay in the middle, leaving the other parts dry and less flavorful.
