    Not only Do I Press the burger while it's cooking, I feel the burger is
    like a sponge...when It springs back it soaks up the juices it is
    cooking in. I'm also getting a burger press so all my burger patties
    will be the same size and purdy when I make them. The only time I don't
    press a cooking burger is when it's on the grill.

    It's not a question of where he grips it!
    It's a simple question of weight ratios!

    A five ounce bird could not carry a one pound coconut.
