SWMBO wants her burgers made all Wrong!
 
3 Attachment(s)
SWMBO: Honey, I want burgers tonight.
Me: Okay honey, that sounds GREAT! You know I like any excuse to fire up the Kamado.
SWMBO: But.... You know I don't like them too thick, could you make them much thinner?
Me: Well, I guess I could, but you know I normally like them thick and juicy, and with a russet smoke ring.
SWMBO: Oh, thanks for reminding me, I don't want them smoky either.
Me: (unprintable) Grumble....Are you sure? (ever so faint hint of wounded dog whine in my voice).
SWMBO: Yes, that is exactly how I want them.
SWMBO exits stage left, and leaves a disconsolate protagonist center stage eyes downcast.

So I tried to figure out how to make myself okay with the criteria.
Then It came to me...Smashburgers, they are thin, and with no grate underneath, less smoke is absorbed.
The Big Joe was loaded with charcoal (and a small bit of hickory, Shhhh, don't tell SWMBO).
The half-moon griddle was put in the lowest position, and the grill was fired up.
While I waited, some sweet onions were sautéed, along with some portabella mushrooms.
After the grill (and griddle) was up to temperature, the balls of beef were thrown onto the griddle, and with a wicked searing sound the cook was underway.
When juices started to openly pool on the top, a quick flip was done, and a quick sear was performed.
A few brief moments and the burgers were done.

I know this is probably crazy talk, but with that set up couldn't have made hers her way AND yours your way? I'm just sayin', you know?:shock:

Smashburgers are great. If i'm in arush and want something easy I crank the electric griddle and smash em w my smallest cast iron pan w some wax paper to keep em from sticking. So fast and so good. Looks like you got great char and wisely used two patties for your burger!

Smashburgers are done hotter than how I normally make my burgers. I tend to do a low and slow (to get them smoky), then reverse sear them. The temperature of the smashburgers aren't compatible with my style.

I grew up thinking that I'd never want anything more than I thick smokey burger.



......Now I put just as much work into getting them thin as any other part of the cook!:tsk: I just like the crust ratio so much better and they double and triple better.:biggrin1:
