Cooking Frozen Burgers

Yes, you read it right. Frozen burgers. Normally, I don't grill frozen burgers. However, they are convenient for weeknight dinners. If you know what you are doing, you can turn these frozen pucks into wonderful burgers for the whole family.
With the price of fooding going up almost on a daily basis, you have to stretch your food dollars. So, I buy frozen burgers in bulk.
When I'm ready to cook, I take the frozen burgers out of the freezer and place them on a sheet of aluminum foil and turn up the edges a bit. You ask why. Well, I'll tell you. You take the burgers and the foil out to the grill. I put the aluminum foil on the warming racking of the grill and then put the burgers on it. That's right. Oil up your grill grate and you are ready to put the spurs to the grill. I set the burners to medium so it begins to warm up. The heat will warm up the burgers and thaw them out. After about 15 minutes, the grill is ready and the burgers have thawed out and you are ready.
Turn up the burners to high. Then, start taking the burgers off of the warming rack and season them. Start cooking!
