The basics for Edmontonian's to barbecue the perfect burger this summer.

There's nothing like a juicy burger fresh off the grill, but sometimes it can be tricky to get them just right. If you're looking to step up your barbecue game this summer, check out this article for tips on how to make the perfect burger! From choosing the right meat to seasoning it properly, we've got you covered.

The perfect burger starts with the right beef.

When it comes to beef, there are a lot of different options out there. But when it comes to burgers, you want to make sure you're using ground beef that's at least 80% lean. Otherwise, your burgers will be too greasy and won't hold together as well.

Once you've got your beef, it's time to start forming your patties. You want them to be about 1/2 inch thick and 4 inches wide. If they're too thin, they'll fall apart on the grill. If they're too thick, they'll take forever to cook through.

After 8 minutes total cooking time, your burgers should be cooked through and ready to eat! Serve them on a bun with your favorite toppings and enjoy!

Pick your cheese and toppings.

When it comes to barbecuing the perfect burger, there are a few key things you need to take into consideration. Firstly, you need to decide what kind of cheese you want on your burger. Do you want a classic cheddar, or something a little more adventurous like goat's cheese? Once you've decided on your cheese, it's time to think about toppings. Do you want to keep it simple with lettuce and tomato, or pile on the extras like bacon and avocado? Whatever you choose, make sure your toppings complement your cheese selection.

Don't overcrowd your burgers.

Edmontonian's, if you want to barbecue the perfect burger this summer, there's one key rule you must follow: don't overcrowd your burgers.

So take your time, and enjoy the process of grilling your burgers to perfection.

Let the burgers rest before you serve them.
