Start by using a charcoal chimney for a lighter fluid-free ignition. Create a 2-zone fire by stacking charcoal on one side of the grill. When grilling with a kettle grill, consider using Cowboy Charcoal hardwood briquets and adding a handful of Jack Daniel's wood chips, hickory, or post oak for extra smoky flavor.
If you’re cooking on a gas grill, always make sure your propane tank is full. Set up the grill by igniting 2 or 3 burners to create a cooler and hotter zone. Close the lid and allow the grill to preheat for 15 minutes.
To use a pellet grill effectively for grilling burgers, set it to the sear setting at around or above 400°F. Ensure the pellet hopper is filled to avoid running out of pellets during cooking. Jack Daniel's Charcoal pellets are recommended for an authentic grilled flavor, but hickory or mesquite pellets can also be used.
