Grilling Instructions: When using charcoal, grill gourmet sliders directly over medium coals for 14 to 18 minutes or until done (160°f), turning once halfway through grilling. For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed. ã??ã??ã??ã??ã??ã??ã??ã??ã??ã??ã??ã??ã??ã??
