Hamburgers are one of the most popular foods for grilling. Cooking the perfect burger does take a bit of skill and experience. This is a guide about grilling hamburgers.
I'm having a graduation party and serving over 100 grilled hamburgers. Any ideas on how to keep them fresh? I'd like to cook most of them early on in the party.

If you don't have a trivet, use balled-up pieces of foil instead.
Tips for grilling hamburgers. Post your ideas.
Ok, I don't cook so a friend wants me to start trying and since I have one of those lean, fat reducing Foreman grills she's having me try cooking burgers. I've only used frozen patties from the store on the grill. She had me add a packet of Ranch dressing mix with the meat. So I squished it all together made the patties, put them on the grill for 8 minutes, about, and they were pretty dry. I read some of these tips and maybe using the grill took all the juice away. She doesn't want me to use a pan, but what else can I do? I read on a site to put a tea or tablespoon of mayo in with the meat. Maybe that? Or maybe I should've use her suggestion of Worcestershire sauce instead. I like Ranch dressing though. Help.

For a juicy hamburger, add one beaten egg for each pound of hamburger meat. Don't flatten burgers with your spatula, that presses out the juices.

For juicy burgers, add 1/4 cup applesauce per pound.
