How does Burger King get the flame broiled taste?

Chef's answer
Burger King burgers are not charbroiled. They are flame broiled, which is to say the burgers pass through a natural gas flame that slightly chars the meat. ... A gas or charcoal grill is what you need because a lot of the flavor is generated by the meat juices that drip onto the heat source and generate smoke.

    Yes! It turns out, BK really does practice what it preaches. A former employee cleared up any questions by revealing that Burger King cooks its burgers over a flame grill. "They use a broiler and you load frozen patties onto the tray and then shove them in and [it's] a flame grill inside," the employee said.
