Greg at Ballistic BBQ
on YouTube produced a replica Smashburger recently and after watching that video, I had to give it a try. Getting the press was the problem, but thanks to some of the Brethren here, I got hooked up with Matthew at Meyer Metal Works
and got a press fabricated to do the job.
My objective wasn't to reproduce the Smashburger recipe. I just wanted to use the technique for cooking the burger. I love a GOOD fast food burger and most of them are cooked on a griddle rather than a grill. The only really good fast food burgers I have in my area are Five Guys. This technique worked very well and the burgers were awesome!
