Barbechoo's 3 favourite Burger Recipes
We’ve joined forces with UK BBQ enthusiast James McKay once again for our BBQ Brave campaign. This year the campaign focuses on burgers, so James has put together his top tips for making and cooking a perfectly juicy patty on the BBQ, alongside three of his favourite burger recipes. You can also see how he made these burgers below.
I’m not sure there is anything I like more than making burgers. They are the epitome of simple food, they’re quick to make and they taste amazing. Sure, it’s nice to splash out every now and then with a fancy steak or a really technical cook but it always comes back around to a good burger.
For the burger patties
Whilst they are simple to prepare, burgers are not without their challenges. When we’re working with high heat on the BBQ and dripping fat, it can quickly become a hot and heavy situation – resulting in charred burgers that are not cooked all the way through. If this sounds familiar, don’t worry – I’ve got your back.
When Thermapen got in touch and asked if I’d come up with some simple tips to help you become BBQ Brave with burgers – I knew I could help. So in this recipe I’m going to show you how to create three of my favourite burgers but first, let’s talk about how to create the perfect patty.
