Okay, it's almost July 4 and all the food magazines have pictures of grilled steaks or burgers on the cover. One of my biggest peeves in watching amateurs at work is the impulse to keep flipping that burger. God knows why? They should be cooked once and once only on each side. Same with steaks. If you want cute grill marks on a steak slide it 45 degrees to one side before you turn it over. Thoughts.
