Hamburger Photos

Made some very tasty hamburgers yesterday. Super simple. Just made burgers, then seasoned with kosher salt, fresh ground pepper, and chili powder. Then grilled for 5 minutes on each side on the Big Green Egg. Temperature was 600-650 degrees. I think that is what made them so good. Each bite had a nice bit of “salty crunch”. MM. MM. Good! Enjoy!
