I like mine hot, but in a pinch I will eat one that has been sitting out for a bit.

Why isn't "Raw" a choice?

Does anyone actually cook burgers by temp? Maybe the question would be better asked if by doneness, i,e, rare, medium rare, medium etc etc.

I'll cook 1.5" by temp. Thinner ones get 500*F grill with one flip. Thicker ones get 130-140 and a 10 min rest for carryover. Roughly shoot for 145-155*F served hot. Want to leave enough room for them to be microwaved (leftovers) the next day etc.

I don't temp either. If it's store bought ground meat, I'll take it to 165F ish. If it's home ground, closer to 140F.

I'm an odd one. While I like my steaks medium rare, I like my burgers very well done. I like that extra bit of crunch/char a well done burger gets on the outside

I temp all ground products. I cheat the 165° rule more on bison and pull it at 150° ish, beef is pulled before 155°, pork burger and chicken burger go to high 150°s. All get rested for at least 3 minutes.

Same here precisely. To me a burger is all about the sightly charred crust. The best burger cooks can still nail the crust while keeping the interior a nice medium/medium rare, but when I'm eating out I usually order my burgers medium well and everything else medium rare.

I voted 140-150. BUT, the reality of my burgers is more like 140 - waaaaay not pink or juicy anymore. I just cook it until it looks good, and sometimes I get it right and it's pink. When I have my mom or my inlaws, they all get cooked to the internal temp of, "if I see pink I won't eat it" degrees.

I like them JUST well done - no pink but lots of greasy/juicy goodness.
