Divide the meat into four equal 8 oz portions. Wet your hands with cold water and form each portion into a patty about 4 inches in diameter and 3/4-inch thick. Try not to overwork the meat.
Season both sides with salt and pepper.
When ready to cook, start the Traeger grill on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to High and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.
Arrange the burgers directly on the grill grate. Cook for 6 minutes, then flip and set the grill to 195 degrees F. If cooking on a Timberline grill, press Super Smoke button.
Cook for an additional 7 minutes or until a thermometer inserted into the center of the burger registers 160 degrees F.
The last few minutes of cooking add cheese to burgers and place buns on grill to toast. Serve with your favorite toppings. Enjoy!
