It's $15 good. This double meat, double cheese smash burger was on the money: juicy, easy, crowd pleaser. 
Total time is about 30 minutes. I went fancy boy with the Wagyu burger grind, but you can make this with any standard 80% lean 20% fat ground beef from the store. Chuck would be perfect. Any one know a good Chuck Norris X Ground Beef joke? I feel like I need that one in my arsenal. 
Ingredients: (makes 4)
  • 1.5lbs 80/20 ground beef. I used Waygu beef brisket trim
  • Rolling Bones Perpetual Beef Rub (or substitute something like Lawry's seasoned salt or Tony Chachere's)
  • 4 buns, I use Martin's Potato Rolls
  • 8 slices of American Cheese
  • Iceberg lettuce
  • 1/2 Mayo (I use Duke's)
  • 1/2 cup BBQ sauce (use your favorite red BBQ sauce, any will do)
  • 1 tablespoon dill pickle juice
  • 2 tablespoons diced dill pickles + more for topping your burgers
  • 2 tablespoon dehydrated minced onions
  • 2 medium tomatoes 
  • neutral cooking oil
  • parchment paper to prevent sticking when pressing burgers
  • Watch the video :)
  • Form your meat into 3 ounce balls
    • if grinding, strip your meat into sizes that will fit in your grinder and let it chill in the freezer for 30 minutes
    • send strips through the fine grinding plate
    • form into 3 ounce balls
  • Heat griddle, pan, or press on medium-high heat. You want this thing ripping hot (if using griddle or pan, you'll want a spatula to press the burgers)
  • While pan is heating, mix mayo, bbq sauce, pickle juice, diced pickles and minced onions and set aside
  • While pan is heating, thinly slice lettuce and tomato
  • Once pan is ripping hot, spray lightly with cooking oil, place two meat balls on the pan and press down with the spatula (another pan would also work nicely!)
    • a tip to prevent sticking; use parchment paper between meat ball and spatula when pressing
  • Season with a light layer of your rub/seasoning
  • Once you see the meat begin to brown on the edges, use a spatula to flip your burgers
  • Cook for about 45 seconds and put one slice of cheese on each burger then stack the patties and set aside on baking sheet with wire rack.
  • Repeat for the rest of the burgers
  • Toast all buns
  • To dress, put burger sauce on both sides of bun and starting with the bottom bun go down with the lettuce, tomato, meat, pickles, then top bun
