Using a meat grinder with a 3/8 inch plate, grind the meat. Change to a 1/8 inch plate, and grind a second time. Shape the ground meat into 4 (7 ounce) patties. In a mixing bowl, combine the kosher salt, pepper, garlic salt, onion salt and celery salt. Mix well. Place burgers on a hot grill and season with the seasoning salt.
Cook the burgers halfway to desired temperature and flip over and finish cooking. Place cheese on the burger when it is 3/4 of the way cooked and melt. Place bottom bun on plate. Place burger on bottom bun. Place lettuce, tomato and onion on top of the burger. Cover with top bun and secure with a wooden pick. Place pickle next to the burger. Place fries on the plate.
