Default Cook N Kettle Sr and my struggle with lean hamburger patties

Here are a few pics using the new cast iron grill grate. Fit perfectly in the Cook N Kettle Sr. Its nearly identical to the Weber 18.5". I feel more at home smoking than grilling. So my grilling techniques do need improvement.

For this cook I put all he coals on one side of the cooking area. I am still struggling cooking lean hamburger. I always manage to get a blood pocket in them. This time around I seared both sides of the burgers for 5 minutes each then put them in the side opposite the coals to finish while I continued to grill on the hot side. I guess I left them in too long...they became charred on one side and flavorless. I will continue my attempts.

Anyway here are the pics. Here is the new cast iron grate.

Startign up the lump.

Started off grilling skirt steaks. I would sear two minutes per side then put a batch opposite the coals before laying another batch down. I also would put the lid on so the cooler side would still continue to cook.

I foiled the skirt steaks then laid down some sirloins. I did 5 minutes per side and put them on the cooler side of the grill while I put down hamburger patties.

Here I started putting the burgers opposite the coals while I grilled kabasas and hotdogs.

There it is.
