Best Burgers - Grilled or Griddled? [moved from Manhattan board]

I know there is constantly discussions on who has the best burgers. As I continually search for my favorite burger, it struck me that the 2 most important things in a burger is the quality/type of meat and how it is cooked. I love both shake shack (griddle cooked) and burger joint (grilled), but as a result of their different cooking methods, they are very different burgers. I also realized most of my favorite places use a griddle (PJ Clarks, JG Melon). As a kid, we had a barbecue and my childhood memories of good burgers are thus grilled and I can remember that smoky taste you would get with every bite. But now that I live in an apartment, I find myself using a very hot pan to cook my burgers and I am really digging the crispiness I get on the outsidee. So chowhounds, what do you think - is a burger better on the grill or on the griddle?
