Do you grill burgers covered or uncovered?
Place patties on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as directed.) Thicker burger patties will require longer grilling times to reach a safe burger doneness temperature of 160 degrees. Aim for 20 to 24 minutes for patties that are 3/4 inch thick.
Why put an ice cube on a burger?
The ice cube will prevent the burgers from overcooking and add a bit of extra moisture to the beef — something that’s especially helpful if you’re grilling rather large patties. What you’re gonna do is take a ball of ground beef, gently press a little ice cube in the center, and form the beef around it so it’s sealed.
How do you keep burgers from drying out on the grill?
Master Chef judge Graham Elliot explained the trick to Fox News. “Make your patties, then put your little ice cube in there and then when you grill it, it keeps it moist and keeps it from getting dried out.” As the hamburger patty cooks, the ice melts slowly, keeping the burger moist.
