If you’re buying preground meat for beef burgers, 85 percent lean ground chuck is the best choice.
To avoid soggy buns, let your meat burgers rest on a platter for at least 5 minutes before transferring them to buns.
Freezing some meat burgers briefly before grilling helps ensure they hold together over the heat.
Grinding salmon in the food processor works well for salmon burgers. But for tuna burgers, we recommend hand-chopping the fish.
