1 1/2 pounds coarse-ground chuck
1 1/2 pounds coarse-ground sirloin
2 teaspoons kosher salt, plus some to taste
2 tablespoons coarse-ground pepper
4 tablespoons brown sugar
6 quality hamburger buns

Preheat grill to medium high and lightly grease the grate. In a mixing bowl, combine chuck, sirloin, salt, pepper, and brown sugar. Mix well and divide into six patties. Sprinkle one side of each patty with more salt and place on grill, cooking 4 to 6 minutes per side. (If adding cheese, do so now and cook for another minute to melt.) Remove patties from grill and let rest for 3 minutes before serving. Serves 6.
