Surprised how that first burger was "Sticking" to the griddle when you turned it over.

Fatty meat + butter on the griddle and the crust stuck? I would have thought the burgers would slide around like greased pigs.
That one burger did stick a little and I'm not 100% sure why, but my idea is that the cast iron griddle is new and had not been used previously. It was pre-seasoned but I also re-seasoned it with crisco before I used it. After watching the video again I also noticed that I did not get up under it very well with my spatula before I pulled it up. As this griddle gets more use, nothing will stick to it. It just doesn't have the miles on it yet to get that perfect cast iron seasoning...
Measure Less. Cook More.
