The heat doesn’t build up and intensify the way it would if the lid was down. Thin pork chops, shrimp, and burgers tend to cook quickly. Leaving the grill lid up will slow the cooking process by reducing the temperature around the meat. For thicker cuts, you want to close the lid to keep the temperature high and even.

Why put a thumbprint in a burger?
To ensure that the meat cooks evenly, make a thumbprint indentation into each patty before it goes on the grill. The indentation helps the patty hold its shape—rather than swelling—as it shrinks during cooking.
How can you tell if a burger is done without a thermometer?
Go in at an angle in the middle of the cut, wait for a second, and then touch the tester to your wrist. If it’s cold, the meat is raw. If it’s warm—close to your body temperature—then the meat is medium rare. If it’s hot, it’s well done.
How do you not overcook burgers?
- Use only good beef, salt and pepper.
- You need to keep the ground meat as cold as possible, to prevent the fat melting out of it before you cook it.
- Generously salt the outside of the burgers about 1 hour before cooking.
- Get a good pan (preferably a cast iron griddle) really, really, really hot.
Do you put oil on burgers before grilling?
Lightly brush the burgers on both sides with melted butter or extra-virgin olive oil just before grilling. This helps prevent sticking and adds an extra layer of flavor. You ‘ll also need to practice good grill hygiene by heating, scraping and oiling the grill’s grate prior to grilling.
How do you know when a burger is doneness?
