        Cook them as diner burgers in the 1/4 lb range. If you want 8 oz make a double burger. You get twice the crust. Yummy.

            Because the smashburger chain isn’t that great. Shake shack burgers have better crust.
            Or just make them yourself.

          https://www.seriouseats.com/2014/03/...a-smashin.html

          i make them outside because it smokes and can be messy.

            Ok, I have 6 pounds of 80/20 chuck to cook tomorrow, and thinking smash burgers on the Drip ‘N Griddle following the wimpy burger recipe will be the way to go. Guessing the upside down grill grates won’t work due to the holes.

              I have done 'em on the Grillgrates, but I pre-smashed them about half way hoping they wouldn't extrude through the holes, and they didn't.

              Since reading about smash burgers here I've been doing them on my flattop as an alternative to my "steakhouse burger" and they are a big hit. So easy and am using is a plastering trowel to smash with.

                HouseHomey I read on this site about improvising for kitchen tools and it may have been you who suggested them on a post. I also bought a quality paint scraper for the scraping and both work wonderful.

              These were good, but not as crusty as I expected. Maybe the Drip ‘N Griddle didn’t get hot enough, but I think mostly after the first few cooked, I had way too much grease on the griddle, leading to less and less crusty burgers as I cooked. Any ideas on the subject?

                I use an IR thermometer to make sure I’m over 600F. Clean/dry the griddle betweem batches (paper towels etc be careful you don’t ignite them you should also clean and dry so any overflow grease doesn’t ignite).

                Make sure you have something very sharp to scrape them up with so you don’t lose any crusty bits.

                I think flipping in the same spot on the griddle and grease is my is my culprit

                Ok, I’ll Break out the IR next time, and bring a roll of paper towels to wipe the griddle between batches. I was doing 4 to 6 at a time.

              Ok, I want to say something about these "smash burgers". I cooked up 24 1/4 lb. patties on the DNG on my kettle on Father's Day, and was still eating left over burgers last night. Burgers cooked this way, versus traditional grilled "steak house" burgers, are SOOOOO much juicier as left overs. The typical 1/3 to 1/2 lb. burgers I grill to 160-165 are usually SO DRY when reheated as left overs in the microwave a day or two later. These are awesomely juicy, despite being smashed thin on the griddle. I used the same 80/20 chuck I always do, but both the wife and I noticed how much juicier and moist these are as leftovers.

              The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

              the good one grill

              The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
