How to BBQ an All-American Cheeseburger

What could be tastier than a perfectly grilled, juicy, All-American Cheeseburger?

cheeseburgerNot much, I suspect with all of that ooey gooey cheese melting off the sides of the burger, fresh & tasty toppings on it, and a fluffy, lightly toasted bun. Awwww, man!

Although it’s a classic American recipe, this is certainly something I crave, and love making too. Such a simple dinner made relatively quickly, is tempting to most taste buds, and won’t break your bank book.

This is a basic recipe, but feel free to experiment with different types of ground meat, cheeses, buns and even some kicked up toppings.

The best not to make burgers using the leanest ground beef you can find, as its fat provides more flavor & moisture. Ground chuck is a good choice for burgers.

You can purchase ground chuck at your supermarket, a local deli, or you can grind the chuck at home yourself with a meat grinder.

Perfect for a mid-summer night’s dinner, or in the dead of winter, as you sneak out to your BBQ on the back patio and freeze, just because you can taste this burger in your head…You just have to have it!

Now, go grill you up some burgers.

Type: Sandwich Recipe

Serve with: all the fixins you like – ketchup, mustard, tomatoes, onions, pickles, BBQ sauce
Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time: 10 – 12 min
Serves: 6 burgers


  • 1.5 lbs ground beef chuck
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup bread crumbs – or cracker, chip crumbs
  • salt – to taste
  • pepper – to taste


  1. Preheat the grill on medium high heat.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine all ingredients and mix until just evenly combined.
  3. Form approximately 6 burgers to make quarter pounders.
  4. Over a hot grill with greased grates, grill burger 4-6 min on the first side, using a spatula to make a 1/4 turn halfway through that time.
  5. Flip burgers over and grill an addition 4-5 minutes on 2nd side. This is when you add the slice of cheese to the burger, so that it melts by the time the burger is done on the 2nd side.
  6. Perform the “poke test” to ensure the degree of how you want it cooked – i.e. medium to well done is recommended.
  7. Serve on fresh burger buns with all the toppings your heart desires.

Why not try making some fancy condiments! Here’s a great Spicy Ketchup Recipe:
