I hope you came hungry; it’s time to enjoy a true American classic, the smash burger. In this post, I show you how to make juicy, flavorful burgers on the Blackstone. Say goodbye to bland burgers and hello to a meal that beats any burger joint in town.
The secret to a fantastic burger is my BBQ Beef Rub. Once you try it, you’ll never be without it! Smash burgers are a versatile recipe that you can load up with all your favorite toppings. They’re a real crowd-pleaser that everyone will be talking about for days to come.
There’s nothing better than a big juicy burger unless, of course, it’s a Smash Burger! This type of burger gained attention after a restaurant with the same name opened in the late 2000s. The cooking method has been around longer than that, though.
I love using the Blackstone to make this recipe because it allows me to fry several at once. When you cook your burgers using my simple process, you give the meat a chance to cook in its juices and sop up any flavorful fat. Add in a few of my signature tricks, and you’ll have a meal like nothing you’ve ever tasted.
This easy recipe comes together with less than 10 ingredients. You won’t believe how simple it is to cook burgers from scratch! Here’s what you need to add to your shopping list.
Here’s a quick rundown of how I make my famous smash burgers. If you want more details, check out the recipe video and card at the bottom of the post.
These Smash Burgers were literally dripping. They were so juicy. They had just the right amount of seasoning, and no element overpowered the other.
Serve my Smash Burgers with ketchup, mustard, tomatoes, and lettuce. Other side dishes include:
• Cocktails. Any of my cocktail recipes are great with burgers, but my Mississippi Sunrise is always a favorite.
• Coleslaw. Creamy coleslaw goes excellent with warm burgers. Try my Mississippi Coleslaw for a different take on a classic.
• Chips. Potato chips are one of the easiest sides. Jazz it up by adding my Smoked Onion Dip.
I can’t guarantee you’ll have any leftovers, but if you do, you can keep them covered in the fridge for 3-4 days.
