When I texted a couple of these photos to my foodie friend Danny, he had two words, and both were in block capitals: JESUS CHRIST! And hes not even religious. He and I spend an unhealthy amount of time in pursuit of the prefect burger and regularly share our explorations, be they in the kitchen or out and about. 

Danny Boy: The quest is over. This is it. The best, the juiciest, the dirtiest, the most extraordinarily outstanding piece of meat I have ever held in my hands!

1. Ensure the burgers are at room temperature. (Remove from the fridge at least 2 hours before cooking.)

2. Crush your seasoning together with a little oil and rub the burgers all over. Get your pan smoking hot and pre-heat the grill.

3. Stick your burgers on! Leave for a couple of mins to get a good colour then turn. Keep turning regularly to avoid burning.

6. Build your burger whichever way you prefer. I like mine with caramelised red onions, Hellmans mayo and Frenchs American mustard; my wife likes a slice of firm tomato, plus ketchup.

The result: There is a scene in Blade Runner in which Rutger Hauers replicant Roy Batty launches into a soliloquy after his missions to far-distance planets. He says: œIve¦ seen things you people wouldnt believe¦ Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion.  I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those¦ moments¦ will be lost in time, like¦ tears¦ in¦ rain. Time¦ to die¦
