# Reaching internal temperatures

#### boggymom

I know my hamburgers have to reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees but what length of time do I cook them at 325 degrees to reach that?

There are a lot of variables in that question. How thick are the burgers, what temperature are you starting from and so on.

Solved the problem...i was cooking Bubba Burgers that you can pick up at the grocery store. I cooked them at 400 degrees for 7 minutes, flipped them over and cooked for an additional 12 minutes and they turned out perfect!

Seriously though, try cooking your own burger sometime from a patty you make. I mean, it might take you a FEW extra minutes (like 5, tops) to do it, but I bet the results are worth it. Doesn't get much easier slapping some meat into a disc, bit of salt and pepper, and some heat.

Seriously, I do usually make my own patties. But since I was tight on money these were bought for me. Thank you very much!!
