Smash Burgers the easy way to impress the masses

At Grillax, we’re all about the best-tasting foods off the grill, and when it comes to burgers, it’s hard to top Smash Burgers. And what a better way to kick off Burger Month?!

These burgers aren’t created for the fancy, pinky-raising crowd, as the best Smash Burgers are made with the simplest, cheapest of ingredients. Now, that’s not to say you can’t throw down with some ground Wagyu and smash it up, but it’s not needed for great flavor.

Almost all grocers will carry ground chuck, which is an outstanding all-purpose choice for Smash Burgers.

Heat your FireDisc Cooker to medium-high until very hot, about 2 minutes, then drop a pat of butter into the center. Divide ground chuck into 4 equal ball portions loosely, and DO NOT form patties. You want the beef rounds to be airy.

Working in batches if needed, place portions on griddle and smash flat with a spatula to form hand-sized patties — jagged edges are a good thing when smashing the patties. Season liberally with your favorite rub (we used FireDisc’s Bodacious Beef seasoning) and grill until edges of your smashed patties are browned. This can be between two and three minutes. Flip patties, season with more rub, and place a slice of your favorite cheese (we used American) on top of each patty. Grill until cheese melts and burgers are 160 degrees, or medium.

Double up and serve smashed patties on simple buns with mayonnaise, mustard, caramelized onion slice and bacon.
