Now that it is summer time and the weather is beautiful, it
is an excellent time to dust off the grill and have a barbecue in the backyard.
Burgers and beer brats are two of my favorites and are two of the most natural
things to grill outdoors.
Here are some hints to make sure your grill perfectly and to
make sure you get the best taste out of them.
Burgers on the grill:
The first thing you will have to do is buy the meat. I
prefer the 85/15 ground mandrel. Even though it has a higher fat content, this will
ensure the burgers are juicy and tasty. If you get very low-fat meat, they tend
to be too dry especially if you overcook them.
When patty my burgers I like to make sure they are cold and
fresh from the fridge because they stay together better. Take about 8 ounces of
ground chuck, ball them and press the meat together, then flatten them out into
Not about the meat season. I only use a bit of
Worcestershire, ground black pepper, and kosher salt.
Be sure to preheat the grill and place the burgers on the
grill for about three minutes per side, depending on how well you want it done.
Whatever you do, do not press the burgers with the spatula as this will dry the
hamburger and can also start a fat fire.
Grill Brats beer:
Beer snacks are very simple to grill, and they are also very
cheap. The first thing to do is put some holes in the brats to let the water
out of all the fats while the grills. This will also leave you in the taste of
beer from the beer you boil in before the grill of the brats.
This brings me to the next step I’ve already mentioned, to
boil the brats in beer. Boil for about 10 to 15 minutes before throwing them on
the grill. You should turn half of the boiling process.
When they grill, the beer brats do it for about four minutes
on each side. Watch the grill to make sure the flames do not spark and start a
fire and burn your brats. There is a lot of fat content in the brats that tend
to seep and flare up the grill.
That’s all there is to grilling perfect burgers and beer
brats. The more grill you get, the better you grill it, so stick with it and be
sure to use your grill throughout the summer.
