Prepare a medium-hot fire in weber charcoal grill or preheat a gas grill to medium-high.
Put all ingredients (except beef, buns, lettuce, tomatos, potato chips) in large bowl. Stir to mix well. Add beef and knead carefully to incorporate.
Divide the mixture into 6 equal portions and form the portions into patties.
When the grill is ready, place the patties on the rack, cover, and cook, turning once, until done to preference, 5 to 7 minutes on each side for medium. During the last few minutes of cooking, place the rolls, cut side down, on the outer edges of the rack to toast lightly.
