    Marie's Note:

    A most requested recipe for juicy burgers, whether you grill or pan fry them. Dissolving the salt and pepper in ice water distributes the spices evenly throughout the meat just as some sausage makers do when making sausage. Cook time depends on how well done you like your meat.

      I was completely skeptical, despite the rave reviews. I don't know why this method works, but it does. Delicious.

      These certainly were juicy. I too added a couple drops of liquid smoke but otherwise followed recipe as written. Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.

      Thank you for sharing! This is the only way I will make burgers on the grill from now on. I had a little A-1 marinade left over, so I added that to the ice water and it was great.
