70/30 is the key here.  (meat to fat ratio)

That's why they can smush it down a bit because normally you would be squeezing too much fat out.

Not having any In-N-Outs nearby I honestly was expecting this to have something to do with a couple having sex in the drive-thru.

And I'm a little troubled that I was disappointed to find out that I was wrong.

The Waffle House parking lot about 1:20 am. on a Fr- Sat night.
Why? 'Cause nobody has the energy for an in-n-out after the Waffle House. It's time to go home and pass out

Those are some good burgers Walter.

Slightly modified bumper stickers were a thing in high school.

"While the oven heated up, I started preparing the faux secret sauce, which included ketchup, mayonnaise, sweet pickle relish, sugar and distilled white vinegar."

In other words, Thousand Island dressing?

Since I started doing Kenji's smashed burgers, I've nearly given up on ordering a burger when we go out.  A couple of really simple tools and you're set:  a steel or cast-iron griddle; a burger smasher (I took a bench grinder to a fine-toothed mastic trowel and got rid of the teeth); and a wallpaper  shaver (to get the patties off the griddle cleanly).

In Sight It Must Be Right. Steak & Shake has been showing Americans how to smash burgers for decades. Always on the grill, otherwise they would come pre-smashed from the factory.

Royale steakburger and chili cheese fries.

Yum.

I've never been to In n Out, but I've heard about "animal style." I did not know it was just thousand island dressing and grilled onions.

It's not. It's actually extra sauce, mustard grilled patties, pickle, and grilled onion.

Boiling water is easy. Just use the deep-fryer.

Well, if you have all the industrial kitchen equipment that you would find in a restaurant then it would be easy.

Burger is good, but fries are embarrassingly mediocre. Wendy's single is just as fine. Fries are better. There are also other places. Nobody cares.

I've recently improved my burgers by adding in 1/4 C of a famous marinade for london broil per 2 lbs. of 80-20 ground chuck. I also use a trick for helping the meat retain moisture when cooking:  3/4 t. baking soda, 2 t water, and 1 t salt, mixed well, and left standing, covered, for 15 min.

Then I can smash the raw burger with a bacon press without worrying about the cooked burger drying out.

It's "I'm a millennial, and I am going to do something I should be able to do and act like it was amazing and post as a story and then also put in personal items in the article to force other to read it" article that millennial "journalist" seem to be so fond of these days.

That is a teapot, not a tea kettle. You boil water in a kettle, you brew tea in a pot.

Agreed. That recipe is so easy and sooooo good. I used to grill burgers anytime I made them. And I made them thick. Not anymore. Well, not often anyway. Sometimes I do want a good thick medium burger.

I recently accidentally searched for 'cocks illustrated' (when I intended to search for 'Cook's Illustrated') and was flabbergasted to see that most of the results were actual pictures of chickens. Yes, safesearch was off. I got super creeped out.

While not the second coming of jeebus as some people think, in n out is a damn tasty, top 5 burger.

1) Portillo's
2) Buona Beef
3) Dairy Queen in Livingston, MT (yes)
4) In-n-out
5) five guys

/squishing patties is amateurish
//am I the only one who thinks five guys has slipped?

"For me, the bun and the meat are two of the of the most important components to a good cheeseburger," Donado said.

Sorry, this is where this bullschitt lost me...
Yes, it is about the meat and bun, because that is 75-80% of the farking burger!

If you want a good burger, get good meat. None of this 80/20 schitt unless you like lard... I'm talking 10/90 or 7/93. Season and cook it right, and you are golden. (bison is the best meat, but still, never more than 15/85)
Buns doesn't mean wunderbread... if you think so, you are an idiot. You want meaty bread, you want bread to hold that bison in place! You want ciabatta rolls or some serious rye schitt..
Biatch and moan about the rest, but it isn't real without Lettuce, Onions, Tomatoes, and Pickles.
You have a problem with that? You are the problem!
And no, there is no "special sauce" other than a swipe of mayo on the bottom.

Don't believe me, I've just made more burgers than you have eaten. ;)

majestic: Why would you smash down the patties?


For clarification, you don't "smash down the patties." You make the patties by setting a ball of ground beef on a hot griddle or pan and then smashing them.  Forty-five seconds later, you have a juicy patty with a great crust.

No, that is wrong.


Perhaps sourdough?
If you want that wilting, soggy ass wonderbread type "hamburger bun" schitt, you just keep on Jo Jo Joing...
