What belongs on a burger? Ketchup (or is that catsup?) Mustard? Mayonnaise?
Whether you're firing up the backyard grill for a feast or going out to your favorite restaurant, few things represent summer better than a juicy hamburger. Just about everyone enjoys a burger, but not everyone can agree on the perfect burger. This is where you chime in.
Do you prefer Kobe beef? Buffalo? Grass-fed free-range organic beef? Maybe a veggie burger? Or just the old-fashioned drive-thru burger?
That's just the start of the debate, of course. What do you put on your burger? Coleslaw? Onions? Pickles? And what kind of bun do you like?
Let us know your secret to the perfect burger. Send along some photos to let everyone know you have the best burger in town.
