WILD SUMMER SMASH BURGERS
1/2 teaspoon Canola Oil or Unsalted Butter
2 Pounds 20%+ Fat Ground Chuck
8 Slices American Cheese – Try something funkier, if you’d like!
8 Soft Hamburger Buns or Potato Rolls – Lightly Toasted
Kosher Salt & Fresh Ground Pepper – Or use Wildstyle "Dry Heat" Rub instead – If you’re feeling WILD
All the Fixin’s – Any of your favorite summer toppings: local heirloom tomatoes, pickled red onions, etc.
Fire up your Wildfire Griddle to medium-high. Once the surface is hot – lightly brush the area where you will be cooking your smash burgers with Canola Oil or Unsalted Butter.
Divide the Ground Chuck into 8 equal portions without forming them into patties.
Place the portions of Ground Chuck on your Wildfire Griddle with ample space between each – as you will next smash them with a spatula to form flattened patties.
Season up your flattened patties with salt, pepper, and Wildstyle “Dry Heat” Rub (optional) while they cook for about 2 minutes or until you can see browning occur around the perimeter.
Flip the patties and season this side to perfection – like the one before – then place a slice of your preferred cheese on top.
Your smash burgers will be ready to remove from the griddle once the cheese begins to melt along the edges and they reach your desired level of doneness.
Serve your Wild Summer Smash Burgers on toasted buns or potato rolls with your favorite combination of seasonal fixin’s!
