A Better Burger Recipe

1 1/4 lb 100 percent grnd chuck
3/4 tsp Salt

Divide meat into four equal portions (5 ounces each)- with cupped hands, toss one portion of meat back and forth to create loose ball. Pat lightly to flatten into 1 -inch-thick burger, 3 1/2 to 4 inches across, using fingertips to create pocked, textured surface. Repeat with remaining portions of meat. 2. If grilling, heat sufficient coals to make warm fire. When coals are warm and covered with white ash, spread them in single layer. Position grill rack and lid-, heat till rack is very warm, about 5 min. Place burgers on rack-, cover and grill, turning once, to desired doneness as follows: 3 min per side for rare, 4 min per side for medium-rare, 5 min on first side and 4 min on second side for medium, and 5 min per side for well done.
