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.

Looks like a regular burger to me. Chefs tell us to handle the hamburger meat gently and then proceed to compress it? Sounds like fake news to me.

Those patties are way too thick to be considered smashburgers. Not enough thin, crispy bits.

I know she's a good chef, but the buns were burnt and the patties too large for smash burgers. Not her biggest success.

Great to see the Lodge products in this. The founder of the smashburger doesn't use spatulas to press the burgers either.

It's just me, but if I was on a cooking show seen by millions of people, I would have redone the burnt burger buns.

Is it just me, or is she putting her hands all over the raw meat then touching the cheese, buns, then salt and pepper? Lol I love Carla, please don’t think I don’t.😂 But my OCD is in overdrive right now. Haha

In an ideal world cross contaminating the bun would mitigate burning it.

I am so glad there is a BA chef who doesn’t like shredded lettuce. I have literally discussed my preference of whole lettuce leaves on my burgers with my therapist. Shrettuce is a foul practice that must be ended. All that happens is little shreds of lettuce go everywhere every time you take a bite.

What great content, thank you for this informative video! I would like to ask if I may, is American cheese the KRAFT sliced cheese? I've watched countless videos where all the burger experts claim you must use "American" cheese, but as I live here in the UK we don't get american cheese, we do get similar local store-made individual cheese slices, but I'm not sure if that's the correct one! Any info you could share would be much appreciated!

Real smash burger is onions, mustard and pickles. No cheese, lettuce or ketchup.

Sorry, just cannot watch how one touches raw meat with their hands and then, all the kitchen utensils and... the buns. Ready-to-serve buns. Is raw meat sterile in the US?

I like shredduce on my burgers. It's just that I like the texture and it doesn't slide around or anything like the huge pieces do. I've found that if I make it myself no lettuce can wilt in the time it takes me to inhale my burger. 😂
