Binging With Babish Cooks In-N-Out and Shake Shack Clones | The Burger Show

  • Published on Feb 20, 2018
  • In the world of burgers, the In-N-Out vs. Shake Shack rivalry is the stuff of legend, pitting east coast against west coast in a battle of patty supremacy. But rather than feed the fire of an old flame, Alvin Cailan is teaming up with TVclip legend Andrew Rea (Binging With Babish) to teach people how to make both of these iconic burgers at home. Better yet, they've devised the ultimate peace treaty: a Double Shack x Double-Double Animal-style Voltron burger. It's a moment in burger history you won't want to miss.
    We're finally here to supply you with the dopest merch! We sell everything from Hot Ones Hot Sauce like the The Last Dab to the highest quality tees. Shop here:
    First We Feast's "The Burger Show" is a new web series that explores everything about modern burger culture-from the rise of Instagram-bait stunt burgers, to the enduring influence of regional styles-through the eyes of Eggslut chef, Alvin Cailan. Alvin's breakfast-sandwich empire in Los Angeles put him on the culinary map, but it's burgers that are his true passion. Now he's in NYC to understand what drives his obsession, and he's linking up with folks like Adam Richman, Matty Matheson, and Binging With Babish's Andrew Rea to help him along the way.

    That dude on the left at the start seems funny and interesting but he looks like he wont live past 50. Massively unhealthy looking, I hope he makes some dietary changes because I'd like to see him live a full life! Coming from a formerly overweight and quite unhealthy chap.

    Honestly In-n-Out trash, ShakeShack is a whole nother level. Whataburger is also so much better than In-n-Out, but ShakeShack is superior to Whataburger too.

    In N Out is better and cheaper than most burger chains. For this reason it's usually the go to spot for burgers in California.

    What are the proportions of the beef used in the Shake Shack blend? Researching this online I can't find anyone else suggesting that they use the blend presented in this video, either. Everyone else has their own opinions on what the blend is.

    And I don't live anywhere near a Shake Shack. I've never even tried one, so I can't attempt to reverse-engineer the blend by myself. Guess I'm going to have to get a pound of each of these cuts of meat ground and see what tastes good.

    What is the ratio of short rib, brisket and flat iron in the grind? Is it equal parts? Do we have a 50%, 25%, 25% respectively? I'm assuming, due to the amount of grease I saw, you have more short rib than brisket or flat iron. Can you please tell the percentages?

    In-N-Out all the way. Shake Shack is over priced as hell and they dont even have produce. $15 for a grease burger with a drink and sugar fries. Who puts sugar on a potato?

    In general...the best burger is not thin...or smashed. Its thick Med rare..but I guess there is no profit in that.

    Cook at home. Google Gordan Ramsay burger.

    I don't really understand why people like in and out. I've tried animal style and "regular" burgers and fries. I personally don't have a taste for these burgers. I want to like them but it's not for me I guess. I've also tried to make the in and out spread at home and I made mine better for me. I literally added 2 spoons of mayo and 1 spoon of mustard, ketchup, and pickle juice and mixed them together. It's kinda like a pickley, sour kinda taste. I think I made mine better but that's just me

    Not sure about overall quality because it's a good for price for volume thing and traditional but try rudy's hotdogs. Get a DOUBLEcheeseburger/2xhotdogs with everything/fries and/or onion rings/chocolate malt. The hamburger is really good because of weird balance of pickles to toppings. Just get the burger how it normally comes. It's oddly good. Half to get the chocolate malt. It's hit and miss sometimes as chocolatiness goes but it's good. And it will likely come out extra chocolatey. Cheap chocolatey goodness!
