- 1.5 lb of Beef Chuck

Grinding the Beef
Prepare your meat grinders feed tube, grinding shaft, plate, die and meat screw by placing them into freezer. Prepare the cuts of beef chuck placing them onto a large plate on a single layer, place into freezer and freeze until firm but malleable. Place a large bowl into the freezer for 20 minutes, we will use it to grind the meat into. When grinding your meat work quickly and transition to a ¼ inch plate. If the meat or equipment gets too warm, return to the freezer for at least 10 minutes before finishing.
Getting our Patties ready for the Grill
Lets get your home-ground beef ready for the grill! Form the beef into 4 patties each around .5 inch wider than your burger buns. Press a finger into the center of the patty to prevent the patty from bulging on the grill.
Lets get Grillin!
Heat your gas grill to high or heat your coals until they are glowing bright orange. The last step of prepping our patties is brushing them with a bit of oil, dont soak them just a thin layer. Grill the burgers until they are nice and brown with a bit of char, flip the patties and do the same thing for another 4 minutes or until golden brown.
Plate and Serve,
I usually just prepare the meat and buns and let people build their hamburgers themselves. However, feel free to ask your guests for their preferences and serve them your delicious home ground grilled hamburgers!
