Every time I make burgers my apartment fills with smoke. What can I do to make it less smokey? I made myself two burgers but it looks like DH is getting a mini meatloaf because of all the smoke. :?

Do you have a hood vent or fan? If not use leaner hamburger and open a window.

Could just be the stove, or maybe too much oil or the pan you are using. We do burgers in the oven.

I.use an.oscillating fan, a fan over the stove and use ground turkey which has very little fat. No oil in the pan and I've tried three different ones.

:!: It could also be the pan or the temp you have it on., how much grease you're keeping in the pan.

That always happens when I make burgers too. So, the other day I made them in the oven and they actually tasted a lot better that way.

Put tin foil down on rack and burgers on that. You can bake or broil, personally I love to broil for a grilled like taste. I broil at 350* F for about eight minutes on each side.



edit: Length of time needed on each side may depend on your oven, and burger thickness.

Man I just cook burger patties in the oven. Just bake him. Or put the grill on. Whatevs. Leave them to cook.



I'm a really lazy cook though. Turn the oven on, put it in there til it's cooked.
