Grilled Burger Recipe. You owe it to yourself to try a hamburger done right. It's always a good choice for a summer holiday--like Labor Day!
80/20 and 90/10 are the labels on beef that describe the ratio of protein to fat in that particular cut of beef. The important part in a burger is quality and using the right combination of beef.
