I hate over cooked burgers, most red meat for that matter. If you have really nice, high quality meat, then cooking on the rare side should be fine.

Now this is how I like em'

+1. For some reason I don't like arare ground beef. Rare steaks are fine. Now, if you took a ribeye, and ground it right there in front of me with a freshly cleaned machine, I'd eat that med. rare. After slapping you upside the head for grinding up my ribeye, of course.

Reading this thread makes me want to pick up a couple pounds of ground chuck after work and practice. Just wondering how "loosely" to pack the burgers. Guess I'll play around with it a little.

way too rare for me. I like to make stuffed burgers and then oil each side, that way you can cook it to where it is done but also have the juicy rare like feel to the burger.

Nonsense...all red meat is supposed to be bloody.

Gotta be well done for me when it comes to burgers. I got hella stoopid sick years ago on an undercooked burger. I cannot even stomach looking at someone eat rare ground beef anymore.

I do 82% and they come out amazing. I cook them to just under well, foil them and let em sit for 10 mins and they come out perfect.

This.

I have yet to find any cook or restaurant that can duplicate exactly the way one particular tavern I go to does them. They are out of this world, and they look very similar to the picture you posted.

From talking with the owner/cook, use 80% lean coarsely ground sirloin. Pack it very tightly, salt, pepper, and throw it on the grill over high heat for a short period of time. Very juicy, very flavorful.

Not sure how they did it...I did a fun experiment the other day...formed the burgers (hand ground chuck with some extra trimmings from the butcher ~30% fat..oh yeah) Then cooked sous vide style for 4 hours at 131F. Finished with a quick sear on a screaming hot grill to give it that awesome crust. HOLY COW. Frickin' Fantastic.

Most food poisonings are due to kitchen conditions, cross contamination. Cooking meat to well done can lessen that risk, but so can going to a different place that doesn't make you sick for ordering what you like.

Mmmmmmm....

That burger reminds me of when I went to Ted's in Connecticut. It was on that travel channel or something for being one of the few places that still steams their burgers. If anyone is ever out that way I highly recommend trying their burgers! Absolutely delicious!

I am all for a rare steak and a medium-rare burger but only if I know where the meat came from. Most of the time I buy burger meat it is from the supermarket which gets it from who knows where, in that case medium-well. If my pal who processes meat locally comes over I know his practices and will eat it medium-rare and love every minute of it.

As for the original post: Last month it was decided that our 18 year grill which had every part except for the lid and the left rear wheel replaced at least once, needed to be tossed out. It's replacement: a CharBroil "Commercial" Series three burner with "infrared" heating. I don't know about "infrared" but it's definitely "indirect" heating. You have the typical burner and cover, then trays with a gazillion little holes followed by another tray of tubes that the food sits on.

So we threw on some hand made burgers and some hot dogs. Burgers cooked well done. The first thing everyone said about the burgers was how juicy they were. Much like the OP picture, they were slightly seared on the outside, well done through the middle and you could not take a bite without the juices running down your chin.
This has been repeated every time we use it. Even the pre-made 1/4 pound burgers came out very moist.

So - it's highly possible the OP burger was cooked in a similar manner.
