    Adam, Carla’s time is better spent at shack shack. Fire her and hire someone who knows how to cook.

    This is what I'd consider a really easy simple burger. I didn't realise that they any good to anyone else nor did i know they had a name

    Carla, I made these and everyone loved it. "best burger i've ever had" is what i kept hearing. I always worry about recipes from food channels or youtubers because 9 out of 10 times they don't taste that great, but these are amazing and now i'm gonna make every recipe you've ever posted.

    No no no no. She didn't rest the burgers, the buns were a bit dark, the burgers were still too thick, you should smash two patties even thinner and form a crust on the first side, then stack, then rest, then on to your bun. Pickles go on the mayo, so it's bun, mayo, pickles, burger, cheese. No lettuce, no tomato, no onion, no avo, no whatever else unless you want a slippery mess and don't want to taste delicious beef. But the American cheese, yes. Gotta use government cheese on a smash burger. Also potato bun is unnecessary. Brioche buns are perfect.

    So, she burned the buns and also flipped the first burger almost out of the grill. Not impressed.

    You don't like American, but you sound like you like American but don't want to feel embarrassed. American cheese is simply a joy on burgers, ESPECIALLY smash burgers like those gorgeous ones you made. My god do they look incredible. I feel like Pavlov's dog right now staring at them....

  • Nick Sacco

    I thought it was called the smashburger because you usually order it when you're smashed as opposed to just not flattening it out before its on the grill

    Just getting grossed out more and more when she's contaminating the buns and the salt and pepper shaker with unwashed hands...Whenever I see something like this, it reminds me why I avoid fast food/eating out in general. Also she started the buns way too early. Nobody wants a cold bun. The idea is to quickly toast the buns (both for warmth and crunch) and by doing them so early, it will produce the opposite, a cold and hard bun.

    • PsychoStreak
      PsychoStreak Day ago

      No. Just looks like horribly thick iceberg lettuce from way too close to the base. Perfect for getting that crunch sound on the recording, horrid for actually eating it. To me it's either flavorless (if you're lucky) or bitter (usually).
      Boston/Butter/Bibb lettuce is a far better looking and tasting choice and doesn't need to be shredded.

    OH!!! BTW Carla, my wife eats buffalo, beef makes her stomach upset. I did find 85/15 fat Buffalo, it cooked much faster, but they came out almost equally as good. My wife loved them so just a heads up for those who like buffalo over beef.

  • Ron Simons

    Ok; so I let people know I was going to making these burgers and I ended up with enough people to go through 18 cobs of corn and an equal amount of burgers. I have a large griddle that I put on my grill. I love grilling so making the burgers for family and friends was a true gift to me. I followed these instructions completely. I made a mountain of bacon 1st for the burgers, but then the paddies and buns went on. To the very last person, no exaggeration, we all agree these are the very best burgers we've ever had! Thank you Carla so very much. These burgers are drop dead, melt in your mouth amazing. Happy fathers day to all the other dads out there.

    You kept saying you were making a SmashBurger but mentioned Shake Shack.... are you stupid?
    Do you know the difference?
    Also “don’t burn the bun.” Every bun you made was burned. You pathetic failure.

    • Jordan Jones
      Jordan Jones 4 days ago

      Smashburger doesn't just refer to the chain called "SmashBurger". It also means the style of burger where you literally smash the meat on the griddle to form very thin and crispy patties. Shake Shack uses that method as well.

    Those patties are waaaay too thick. A smash burger patty is like a third of the thickness of these patties... Plus, you didnt even smash them on the griddle. Look up the Binging with Babish video about smash burgers and compare them to this.

    NICE I would eat this burger and be happy,,, as this is how I always cook my burger in winter and I never heard of a smash burger(in fn canada), a thick burger and thinly sliced topping and dressing(not mayo or big mac suace though)... But the best for me is to always pan fry it first, then bring it too the bbq grill...also I tell this to everyone and don't make a meat loaf burger or overly foam/handle as it toughens the burger too. (Don't get me started on people who boiled ribs???)In our family the salt is a no go for health reason so we use a combination or dry thyme(or summer savory), sage, celery seed and cumin mix sprinkled on the burger. I personally like a crispy burnt burger/bun but not the rest of the family sadly, and we can't use butter. I flip my burgers to seal in the juices constantly at first and to harden them up before moving theme to the grill in summer(winter pan fry all the way) and then microwave them if they are tooo thick on 60% power for heat through(no pink burgers here, health risks)(I wish I could set the mircowave at 60% power all the time.. I can't stand mayo or cheese on my burger it subdues the flavours for me, but smash avocado spread is good Bread wise I'm ok with that bread. But there is an olive oil bread here that is so soft and crisps nicely here. Lettuce no we prefer thin boston type lettuce or spring mix... Sorry we love crisp fried onion and raw thinly sliced red onion or shallot Pickles yes, relish no. Tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers, all thinly slice(use a /serrated knife n peeler for cucumbers instead of pickles). Basically Canadian mustard(there is one place here that has dozens of weird flavours), and ketchup and horesradish are on hand for basic burgers(we lik ketchup up here insteasd of mayo. I don't like processed cheese either, but shredded mix cheese blend is great and melt nicely. It's bbq season and I'm hungry.

    I hope nobody that had your burgers, ended up with salmonella or something, handling raw beef and then cheese slices simultaneously? I don’t know but you guys seriously need an HSE department in your office/kitchen/company.
