Grab your buns, it’s National Burger Month!  And what better way to celebrate Memorial Day than with a juicy hamburger.

Burgers are an iconic American food. “We’ve been eating them for generations and burgers are America’s favorite food,” Smashburger founder Tom Ryan told msnbc.  Smashburger is a fast-casual restaurant chain.

Americans consumed 52 billion pounds of meat last year–five times more than we did a hundred years ago. And the average American eats 43 burgers every year. According to the Heath, Patio & Barbeque Association, 84% of Americans buy burger meat to grill at home. To make your home-grilled burger taste even better, here’s advice from Ryan: “Make sure to dial-up the fat because the flare on the char will give you a better taste.”

We wish you a happy holiday and a great hamburger.
