Well, everybody loves the flavour of a nice juicy and fresh grilled hamburger, and that brings to mind the question of how long to grill a burger? Tell me that you don’t love a good-tasting well-cooked burger!

The great chef will tell you that grilling time varies depending on the burger’s size and thickness. The suggestion is to preheat the grill to 200-300 degrees. To keep juices from escaping, shape foil into a bowl on the bottom of the grill. Seal the top of the foil by overlapping the sides. I read one article where the writer said, “in our family, each person makes their bundle with the ingredients they want. For example, my youngest daughter only likes hamburgers, potatoes and onions.”

Another family wrote, “I throw everything in. We take a permanent marker and write our initials on each bundle, so you don’t have to search for your bundle when it is time to eat.” Place each heap on the grill and cook for approximately 20-30 minutes on low to medium heat. You can test them by opening one of the bundles and poking the vegetables with a knife to see if they are tender. Be careful when opening; don’t burn yourself on the steam, and also, don’t poke a hole in the foil. When the vegetables are tender, your bundle is ready to eat.

No matter if it is fun in the park, fun at the beach, fun at the lake or fun by the pool at Grandma’s house, we all want to picnic and have a good time. And the most popular picnics include one of many delicious hamburger recipes! It is summertime we are preparing for that family picnic outing.

So how long do you cook hamburgers on a grill? What are some good hamburger recipes? All great questions! First things first, though. Get your grill ready. Light the charcoals, pop on the gas or throw on some wood. Regardless of your grilling method, get the heat; the gill must get hot! What’s important is nailing how long you cook hamburgers on the grill. Nothing ruins the fun more than a dry hockey puck you could choke on before savouring its flavour! Yuck!

Making the Bundle

One of our go-to family meals is ham burger bundles. My brother usually uses a gas grill, but you could always make the burgers on a grill that uses charcoal if you want that smoky flavour. In most cases, the gas grill is the favourite because it’s quicker, and you don’t get any charcoal flavour. In the countryside where I grew up, we had no electric grill or gas grill, so it was always doing a make-shift grill with three or four stones and the wire grill on the stones. We would place the charcoal between the stones, and while the burgers were cooking, we would pour a little bit of run on the burgers.

First, make the burger bundle with three layers of aluminum foil approximately 18″ long. The reason for the extra layers is that you don’t want to risk a hole being poked in the bottom, which will cause a flare-up and keep the ingredients from burning on the bottom.

The ingredients can vary to each family member’s tastes. You start with a 1/4-1/2 lb of ground hamburger pressed into a patty, then place the burger in the center of the foil. Now you can layer sliced potatoes (not peeled), sliced carrots, onions, green peppers, mushrooms, or any other favourite raw vegetable. Sprinkle in your favourite seasonings; we like Montreal Steak seasoning, garlic salt, pepper & Jane’s mixed-up salt. For the moisture, slice up a 1/2 stick of butter and place it on top. The butter will melt down through the ingredients.

When the hamburger bundles are ready, remove the burgers from the grill and place the hamburgers on an individual family member’s plate. You can eat your bundle out of the foil or pour it onto a plate; be careful not to burn yourself! You can now add shredded cheese or your favourite: Famous BBQ sauce.
