While forming the patties, I talk to the meat. Now this is secret stuff. I may disclose what I tell it after I win. I form the patties with loving care, thin and wide. I season both sides with montreal steak seasoning. I fire up the griddle portion of my grill. I cook the bacon, but not to crispy. I put melted butter on the buns and grill them. I cook the patties, all the while I am speaking to them. I cook to 140 degrees internal temp. I asemble the burgers with loving care by placing bacon strips and cheese on the patties allowing the cheese to melt a little. The Mayo, Ketchup, Lettuce & Pickles are what I like, but are optional.
