Chef and owner of Dallas favorite burger joint, Love Shack, and recently opened Queenies Steakhouse, Woodshed Smokehouse, Lonesome Dove Western Bistro, a founding partner of the Austin FOOD & WINE Festival and partner of the Big Apple BBQ Block Party, his inspired and innovative dishes have earned critical and popular acclaim. His charm and southern hospitality are always on display, whether it's at his restaurants, on TV or at culinary events and cultural festivals around the world such as the FOOD & WINE Classic in Aspen.

With summer just around the corner, grilling season is upon us! We all know someone who could use a tip or two to make their burgers juicier, and this summer Hellmann's is teaming up with Chef Tim Love to put an end to dry burgers and give America a Burgervention.

This May, just in time for National Burger Month (including National Burger Day on May 28th) and Memorial Day, Tim Love is transforming the ordinary hamburger into a juicier, more delicious summer staple. Tim's secret tip? Mixing mayonnaise into the burger meat to help lock in moisture on the grill.
