    I think the best taste is 85% lean ground beef (hamburger) leaner than 80% tends to be better for soup and under 80% tends to turn small burgers with a lot of grease

    Ground beef chuck is the best, about 80% - 20% ratio [lean to fat], for flavor and taste.

    Oh for goodness sake, instead of wasting time on here, look up recipes on Taste.com or other recipe sites.

    Buy top round or London Broil steak, cut in large cubes and grind with the medium die. Make a white or brioche dough and form into hamburger buns. Bake until browned, cool slightly and cut in half horizontally. Form the beef into patties, season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Broil over wood or charcoal until an internal temperature of 131° is reached. Dress the buns with mayonnaise, sliced tomato, a slice of sweet onion and pickle slices. Add the cooked patty and a slice of cheese. Close the sandwich and serve.

    BTW, you can buy pre-baked and sliced buns, and formed burger patties to save some time.

    Ground beef or ground pork

    You can make a decent burger with just normal minced meat as long as it is 15% fat. If you can get some ground chuck or even better some short rib then you can make a next level burger

    A beef burger? Ground beef with fat content no less than 15%.

    You can make burgers with all kinds of things from ground chicken to ground turkey to ground lamb to a salmon patty or a plant-based patty like a Boca burger.

    Most people use minced beef (beef burger) but you can use all different kinds

    Beef is usual but not mandatory. Lamb isn't bad but is used mostly for Greek and Middle Eastern dishes. You can also get ground pork, chicken, turkey . . . .
