Form six 4oz patties and place on wax paper lined tray. Cover the tray with plastic and place in refrigerator for at least one hour, at most, overnight. Remember to pre heat your grill at least 10 mins prior to grilling and season the grates with an oiled rag to prevent sticking. Place patties on the seasoned grill and cook for 4 mins before turning. Flip patties and cook for an additional 4 mins remove. Keep warm for later on.
