I can’t stress how much of a difference it makes if you make your burger patties from scratch. I definitely recommend taking the time to make them yourself!

Step 1: We Are Going to Start by Making a Tasty Mayonnaise Based Sauce.
In a small bowl add three table spoons of whole egg mayonnaise.
1 Tbsp rich ketchup.
1 Tbsp relish
1 Tbsp pickle juice.
Mix together and Keep in the fridge until the burgers are ready.
Step 2: Setup Either a Mincer or Food Processor With the Cutting Blades.
Add diced beef chuck
Diced bacon Season with salt and pepper.
Step 3: Pulse the Food Processor for a Start to Cut the Larger Pieces.
Continue to pulse under the meat it minced, if you’re in the US minced meat is called ground.
I like my burgers to have a fat ratio of 70% meat to 30% fat, this will give you juicy, tender burgers.
Step 4: Now the Beef Is Minced, Take a Hand Full and Mould Them Into Patties.
These are thick but just before placing them on the grill I will flatten them out some more
Step 5: Setup Your BBQ for Direct Cooking
Step 6: Once the BBQ Is Nice and Hot Place Your Burgers on the Grill.
Cook the burgers for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
I like my burger to have the faintest amount of pink.
Flip the the burgers, the first side now has a nice sear.
Step 7: After the Second Side Has Cooked for About a Minute, Place a Slice of America Cheese on Top.
To help the cheese melt, place the lid on the BBQ for the last two minutes.
Take them off the grill.
Step 8: Lay Out a Burger Bun.
Spread the mayonnaise on the top slice.
On top of that add some pickles.
On the bottom half layout some lettuce, then a couple of slices of tomato.
Step 9: Finally, Layer Two of the Burger Patties on Top.
Place the top on the burger.
