Pork Cooking Times & Burger Making Procedures

How to Make a Basic Burger
I've written quite a lot on this topic in the past, but maybe I should break it down in to one bit-sized chunk. There are three main factors that go into making a good hamburger: meat, seasoning, and heat. Do not use ultra lean meat for burgers. Most people want juicy burgers and fat equals juice. Use minor seasonings when making the patties, don't add a bunch of crap. You'll just end up with heartburn. Make the fire hot, preferably over charcoals.

Pork Cooking Times
So what is the cooking time for a Boston Butt Pork shoulder? Or how long do you grill a pork chop? Well those answers vary on the size and weight of each and how done you like them. I've seen people actually order pork with a slight bit of pink in the middle, but I would never do it. I'm just that way. These times are based on grilling over coals at about 350 degrees.
Pork roasts, loins, or shoulders: About 20 minutes per pound
Pork Chops, thick: 12-16 minutes
Pork Chops, thin: 8-10 minutes
