For Medium-Well to Well-Done Burgers

  • Pre-heat barbecue to medium-high.
  • Brush a little cooking oil on the top side of the burgers. Quickly grease the preheated grill with a rag or paper towel soaked with some cooking oil. Place the burgers on the pre-heated grill, top side down. Except when the burgers are being flipped, the barbecue lid should be closed during cooking.
  • Grill burgers for 4 minutes on one side without disturbing. Flip burgers over and cook the opposite side for another 3 minutes.
  • Flip again, cook over reduced or low heat for 6 to 7 minutes.
  • To finish, flip one more time and cook over low heat for a final 6 to 7 minutes for medium-well to well done burgers.
