Here at Sahara, we know how much you all love a burger, especially one that’s Juicy all the way through and grilled on your Gas BBQ.
It doesn’t get much better than making your own homemade hamburgers from scratch rather than buying pre-packaged hamburgers from the store. Especially if it’s something you can do together with the kids on the BBQ. I definitely think cooking with your kids will always encourage them to try out new foods and cooking from scratch introduces a healthier attitude towards food also, let’s not forget the pride they will have when everyone is enjoying the food they have prepared.
Part of the reason that burgers are so awesome is how flexible they are to individual tastes and people love to make their burgers unique. Here is a very simple recipe for tasty, juicy burgers for everyone in the family to enjoy together. What makes the burgers tender is because we don’t add the salt at the beginning of the burger preparation, but towards the end. This is because salt removes water from and dissolves some of the meat proteins, causing them to bind the insoluble proteins together which is not great for a tender burger. So, add the salt to your burgers just before they hit your grill.
You will thank me for that the next time you grill some burgers on your Sahara BBQ!
Here are some simple but delicious topping ideas for your burgers.
- blue cheese
- crispy bacon

- grilled pineapple rings (trust me)
