When going on a bun I like them at 5 ounces raw weight. But... I'm a sucker for a good hamburger (or pork) steak, in which case I make them ob-round and 3/4" thick, the weight is 7 to 8 ounces.

Size of bun matters ....Fat content matters as well...80/20....I grind my own and it may be a tad more fatty...6 oz pattys are perfect for the larger bakery buns we buy. Cheap white buns I'll use a smaller patty. Meat to bun ratio is veryi mportant.

I like multiple thinner patty's for maximum char/caramelization with melted cheese between each patty and on top to keep the bacon in place.

Smashburgers- 2oz ball. but have to be eaten as double burger

burgers on gas grill- 1/4 lbs (if I'm using gas, it's for a party and I'm prolly cooking 20+ burgers I pre formed in a 1/4 press)

burgers on charcoal- 1/4 lb to 1/2 lb- hand formed, depends on bun, toppings, who's eating

Grilled 1/2 lb, but smash style I like them smaller, thinner and stacked in multiples of 3-5.

I go with the double 2oz patty smash burger most of the time these days. I avoid anything bigger than 1/3 lb since the taste payoff generally isn't worth the feeling like crap afterwards.
