      Although now you know what to add if you want to up the level of flavor that was on that video. I’ve used that tutorials method of burger making about a hundred times now, but now I know that if I want to make it really good I should use a pan, not a grill.

      Crimsaur nah, you should use a grill but with a hotplate on it. You want grill flavor and flat cooking. Not a pan. Meat doesn’t need all these condiments.
