Should You Grill Burgers With Lid Open or Closed?

Sebastian Hoffmann (our main editor-in-chief) says that grilling burgers with the lid open allow the heat to escape, making for a longer cooking time. I believe that grilling with the lid open prevents the burger from becoming dry. So, which is the right way to grill a burger?

If you’re looking for a charred exterior on your burger, grilling with the lid open is the way to go. The direct heat from the flames will give your burger beautiful grill marks. However, if you’re worried about drying your burger, you should close the lid while cooking. It will create a more controlled environment and help keep your burger moist.

The bottom line is that it’s up to you how you want your burger to turn out. If you like a little char on your meat, grill with the lid open.
