At the heart of every cookout is the hamburger. Ground beef usually comes from one of three cuts: chuck, round or sirloin. For a juicy burger, choose ground chuck. It has the right proportion of fat and beef. Ground sirloin tends to be lean -- but it makes for a dry burger.

When forming your hamburger patties -- do not over work the meat. It is difficult to form patties with soft and mushy meat -- and it makes them more likely to stick to the grill and fall apart. Do not press the burgers while grilling, under any circumstances. You will press out those precious juices -- and cause an upsurge of smoke in the process. Here are some of the meat, poultry and seafood deals for the week of May, 30.
