Grilling Burgers

>Post yesterday about saving this grill
>Get awesome advice
>Get it clean and ready
>Realize I don't know how to use it
So far I know I need to:
Shape beef patties flat (at least 80/20) and bigger than buns due to shrinkage, slap some salt and pepper on both sides.
400 degrees, 3 minutes each side, place american cheese right after first flip if desired.
Don't squish them while on the grill or they lose the good juices
Try not to handle the meat too much before squishing (with two plates and some parchment paper? I don't own a burger press).

What else am I missing?

      A charcoal chimney came with the grill, I think I just stack it up and soak a paper towel with vegetable oil and light it under the chimney ya?

        Yes, wait until the coals are about 75% on fire and then dump the coals.

    Get a chimney, they are like $10-12 at wal mart or wherever. Add charcoal and use paper to light the coals under. I use paper towels with a little veg oil on there. Once it it lit dump the coals on one side if you plan to indirect cook or smoke, or if you are making direct food like burgs, in the middle. good luck with your burgers anon, when I was younger I used to refurbish grills all the time that I found on the curb on trash day. I found perfectly good Webers just because the grate was a little rusty.

      Just posted about the chimney it came with, probably while you were writing this post!

    Hey all, here is an update, and thanks for all your help!
    I learned not to close the lid to try and get the temperature up, almost burned the hotdogs for my kids, but I think it all went great! Everyone loved the food.
    I caramelized onions in the bacon fat after I made the bacon in a little aluminum boat, those were the biggest hit.
    Thanks again Culinaly! It went well for a first attempt, I kinda want to do this every week now!

      How did you not learn to grill? Are you an orphan or something?

        Actually, yes.
        No not really, but I was raised in the deep south home-schooled and in a religious cult, so I missed out on some stuff (holidays/music/friends/etc). I ended that shit with my family though so, I really do it up around birthdays and holidays for them.

          Real cult or “my parents made go to church on sundays and participate in the religion”? Lots of the the latter like to claim they were in fundie cults for social points when it was really just regular Christian upbringing.

            Hmmmm, well, all holidays were banned, birthdays, DnD, card games, gambling, posters (idol worship), it was a death cult, etc.
            The only thing they celebrated was wedding anniversaries.
            College was not allowed, no playing sports, or music, etc.

              Are you sure you just didn’t have batshit insane parents? I’m not seeing the cult part. Did you belong to a hierarchical religious organization with a leader and clearly defined roles for group members or did your insane parents just make you go to church and do church stuff while being crazy people?
              >it was a death cult, etc.
              What does that mean? You guys sacrificed animals or prayed to Santa Muerte or what?
