Grilling Tips: Housemade Bugers

In the mood for firing up some juicy burgers? Our delicious housemade patties are on sale this week for $1 off per pound! That includes our Blue Cheese, Bacon Cheddar, and Hemingway burgers. These burgers are made from Painted Hills Natural Beef, which is pasture-raised and fed a 100% vegetarian diet free of hormones or antibiotics. We grind it here fresh daily and then season and form each patty by hand.

If your mouth is watering, you aren't alone. Co-op Meat Department manager Kevin has a few tips for grilling the perfect burger:

Get your fire hot set your gas grill on the high side of medium. Grill  until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the burger reads 165 deg–approximately 5 minutes per side.  Let rest a minute or 2 after removing from the grill.  Never, NEVER smash your burgers with a spatula while cooking, you will end up with a dry flavorless mess!
