Ground chuck is a great all-purpose, buy-it-anywhere choice for burgers. But if you want to get ambitious and blend, say, chuck with ground short rib or brisket, we say go for it.

I hate that you wasted those buns

@Mau Murdock what a terrible fan you are that you haven't seen other videos of her burning. I'm not pointing out rare occasions she either love burnt food or she's pretentious, and you definitely uneducated.

Guys...Those buns aren’t burned. They’re really browned, and it looks burn, but it’s not. I do that to my Grilled cheese sandwiches all the time , but it’s not burned. It just adds to the crunch and taste.

Does the test kitchen sanitize everything someone touches after they handle raw meat? I got so stressed watching her touch the meat and then grind pepper.

I just want potato buns with my whole soul but they aren't a thing in australia... I dream about trying them, i imagine what they might taste like but alas, cannot experience them. I also suck at baking....

OBJECTIFICATION ALERT: Came for the burger lesson, stayed for the buns. Super fond of Andy's tutorials but having him working behind Carla was the unexpected yet perfect addition to this simply great demo. Kudos to all involved.

I may have to try this. I say I may is because I get rave reviews on my burgers (cheeseburger for me with better cheese than American cheese) and always make homemade chips.

I prefer 27 perfect fat. It shrinks a bit more, but when it comes to flavor it makes all the difference.

Inability to toast a burger bun is why Carla is no longer employed with Shake Shake

The buns are perfect, we just don't see that side in our burgers typically because they come assembled. Crunchy and charred on the bottom, soft and buttery at the top.

Doctor Mantis Tobagan
Why do they keep talking about potato buns in these videos like it's a common thing? In 34 years of life I've never seen or heard about a potato bun..

They're pretty good actually, my grocery store has them (:

I love Carla, we have the similar tastes. I don’t like raw onion on my burgers, but grilled or caramelized are amazing. Tomatoes on sandwiches to me are limited to blt, grilled cheese, and other sandwiches with not much happening

Same, which is why I do a lot of Oklahoma-style onion smashburgers.

I like 2 2oz patties instead of 1 4oz. And double the cheese!

They look really delish! But smash burgers make me sad because I thought i invented them and now discover that I didnt ! However I make the untouchable burger,I open the package drop it on my griddle and smash it down, add soy sauce, Garlic powder, onion powder and pepper all the while squeezing it down flip and repeat, take it out and cut up to size! never ever touched the meat! used to do it in the firehouse for 15 Smoke eaters!

You don't need 80/20 for smash burgers. Throw on a strip or two of bacon before you make your burgers, the bacon fat will supplement 90/10 perfectly. Also, don't use American cheese, ffs. It's trash. Use Swiss, Gouda, or Monterey Jack

All I could hear in my head was Gordon Ramsay asking her to hold the buns between her ears and say what she is!

Jesus! She kept touching the raw meat and then everything else, the buns, the cheese, the pepper container, etc. without washing her hands first!

comon dont throw shade at american cheese, Kraft F^#$5@#% it up but people are making it good again. its just a version of Chedder.
LunaticReason Month ago
I tried to make this style burger but I wasn't sure how smashed it should be so I didn't press it all the way, should I? My burger still came out pretty good though but it definitely could have been more charred and lacey. Should it be sorta paper thin?
