Grilling season is here, and I'm looking for your tips on making juicy, delicious charcoal grilled burgers from LEAN hamburger meat. The more I search online, the more conflicting advice I find.

To avoid beef fat, I use ~95% lean ground beef but the burgers are too dry. What ingredients can I add to make them juicy and delicious? Any technique suggestions?
I'm grilling 1/3 lb. 6" patties over mesquite charcoal. I don't smash the juice out of patties with the back of the spatula, and only turn them once or twice. I usually serve the burgers with lettuce leaves, sliced tomato, and sliced avocado.
