      Thats what I'm saying. It makes sense to price raw meat at a $/kg but if I'm buying a "quarter pounder" burger I'd want it to be an actual 120g of beef patty. Thats what I expected anyway.

      I thought I was getting gibbed before I googled/gpt'd it and realized the patty loses weight when grilled or w/e. 113g to 80g.

          I'm Aussie I have to translate from imperial to metric

          That's how all meat is weighed unless something is sold ready-to-eat like a pate or lunchmeat. If a restaurant is cooking the meat to order they're going to weigh it the same way you would - before cooking. Thinking otherwise just means you're an idiot.

          And what even is that image? Why are you talking about pounds and then post this random image that makes no coherent sense for there to be 4 panels, and is then weighted in grams? Stupid thread. Stupid OP.

          I'm weighing my food and burger patties. I'm converting pounds to g's. Is there something about this you don't understand? There are 4 panels because I'm weighing 4 different things.

        My local Publix seems to weigh chuck at 1.3lbs per package, and lean beef closer to the 1lb mark. If you were doing a recipe that needed a pound, the shrinkage keeps your portions right. Doesn't really matter tho. If I am looking at a menu, I don't consider a 1/4lb to be anything but a minimum. A 1/3lb or 1/2lb burger is the only thing generous, and incidentally quite common.

      doesn't this mean they can just add a bunch of water and other fillers to meet the precooked weight

    It's the weight of it when raw, which isn't a whole lot of beef.

    No. Burger weights have ALWAYS been and ALWAYS will refer to precooked weight.

      Saladino - ex carnivore guy - was told by an employee there was a bit of cooking oil on the patties when they are/were cooked. It'd be minimal tho
