I just bought a charbroil grill..6 burner..it has cast Iron grills and the meat Sticks,,it made a mess of the burgers,,,it stuck really bad…WHY?????Please reply by e mail…thanks
Willard – Were the burgers cold when you put them on the grates? If they were hand patted and pulled out of the refrigerator and placed directly on hot grates, they tend to stick. If you can get the burgers close to room temp before you put them on the grates, they shouldn’t stick. You can also try spraying the burgers (not the grates) with some cooking oil before you put them on as well. If you spray oil on the hot grates, it will just burn off before the burgers even make it to the grill. Hope this helps. – Michael
Willard, I just saw your question…
My burgers used to stick and come apart until I learned another secret. Here it is…before you put the burgers on the grill. spray ‘em a bit with PAM and put that side down. Now, don’t move ‘em until they are seared. How can you tell? Gently lift the edge with your spatula…if it pulls away cleanly, it is ready to flip…if it still sticks, be patient and WAIT until it releases from the grates. Now it is ready to flip and you’ll see those nice grill marks we all like. Sear the other side the same way until it releases. Internal temp should be around 140 before you take ‘em up.
Try this technique and see if you don’t get better burgers.
