The secret to crafting Texas-style burgers, like any great work of art, lies in the raw materials and how they come together. Begin with ground chuck with enough fat on it to keep it juicy while cooking (about 20% fat), and mold it into rounds by hand. Using your hands helps ensure the patties do not compress too much. Add a smear of classic yellow mustard to serve them in the style of Texas-based fast-food chain Whataburger.
