Hamburger Grilling Recipes - Easy Camping Recipes

Hamburgers are a camping staple just like hot dogs and marshmallows. Here are some variations on the plain grilled hamburger recipes.

Just gather and measure all the ingredients before you leave home, putting them in labeled Ziploc bags and your grilling preparations will be easy peasy.

Time chart for Grilling Hamburgers (about 3/4” thick):

Medium Rare: 3 minutes on 1st side, flip hamburger, 4 more minutes on 2nd side.

Medium: 3 minutes on 1st side, flip hamburger, 5 more minutes on 2nd side.

Medium Well: 3 minutes on 1st side, flip hamburger, 6 more minutes on 2nd side.

Well Done: 3 minutes on 1st side, flip hamburger, grill for 7 more minutes on 2nd side.

Of course, the above is just a general estimate. It will depend on how thick your burgers are, how hot the grill is, how windy it is, etc.
