Making The Perfect Burger (Infographic)

Posted By: on May 30, 2010

Just in time for your Memorial Day barbecues and the coming summer grilling season we bring you the essential infograph on what makes the ideal burger. Of course everyone has their preferences but this guide will show you how to please the masses if that’s what your aim is.

The burger aficionados over at A Hamburger Today have been doing weekly polls on what eaters want in a burger. We’ve taken the data (with their permission of course, thanks guys!), crunched the numbers and have come up with the perfect burger…and also what would presumably be the least appetizing burger. Not sure how you’re going to accomplish that deep-fried 1 1/2 inch thick rare burger but I know I wouldn’t want to try it. What makes the perfect burger and meal to you?

…and if eating all this deliciousness makes your ass nice and round, this is perfect for you.

    Melted Cheddar Cheese and very crispy bacon, thats what I am talking about. Wow.


  2. None of these are the perfect berger….The Jucy Lucy is perfect. It is originally and best made in Minneapolis. The cheese is cooked in the middle of two meat pattys.

    I do believe you left out the most important factor of ALL… what cut(s) of meat to use! If you have not ground your own burger before with more than one cut of beef, then I suggest you do so. It's fantastic.

    My most recent combo came from the amazing Heston Blumenthal, who suggests using brisket, chuck and short rib. Ya can't beat it.
