Mix in Parmigiano-Reggiano: mixing in some parmesan cheese will to the savory tastes from the inside. Your guest will be coming back for seconds.

Grill on high: if you are looking for a truly juicy burger, cook the beef on high and not on medium or low (your burger will just dry out). Ground beef cooks easily for charbroiling it will get the best results.
