Have a barbecue fire ready. Combine the beef, salt and pepper, mix gently. Shape into 8 patties about 3 1/2 inches. Grill over hot coals, turning 6 to 8 minutes; 12 minutes for well-done. Place the buns on the grill then place hamburger on the buns and serve with the garnishes above. If cheeseburgers, about 1 minute before removing from the grill, place a slice of cheese on.
