I must say I'm a true believer. My wife said they were the best yet. Just plain ole cheeseburger with grilled onions. Can't beat it!

It's hard to beat a good burger. Never thought of reverse sear on one may have to try it.

That's a good loking burger. I started doing reverse sears on my burgers about a year ago, works great.

Ahh Yeah. Love them burgers.

Sounds interesting. Could y'all please specify how you're doing a reverse sear.

Cook your patties indirect to about 10*F below desired interior doneness and then rapidly sear over direct heat.

I've been doing my burgers this way for several years and it is by far my preferred method for a 1/2lb (or bigger) patty.

1/4lb patties are normally too thin for this method to really work. For me, it's easier to just grill those over medium direct heat for 2-3 minutes per side.

Here's a reverse sear cheeseburger cook I did a while back:

I love how the surface of the burgers turn a deep reddish brown from the smoke, not to mention how juicy they are...

Done it several times with great results. Color of interior is awesome, pink throughout.

Without reading this, I just did this same thing with pork chops tonight. They were awesome... this technique is not limited to burgers.

Cool, thanks, will have to try it out.

Super cheesy, me love!

The absolutely best burgers I have ever had were made in a small diner next to my dads shop, she used ground beef, and a hot grill, smashed it on there, let it cook right to the grill(it sort of fried right TO the grill), peeled it off more or less, then did the second side the same way. Never had a burger as good.

Makes it tasty!

I also like to cook brats that way.

I just reverse seared a London Broil last night and it was perfect. I've done the same thing with the my two Tri Tips as well. They've all turned out more evenly cooked, while still tender and juicy.
