Had make sure we still knew how to make these smash burgers! We will be throwing these on Kamado Grill demo event this Friday night for a local business. One bite into her first double my dd let me know I should get her second one ready. I guess they passed the test.

Thanks for the kind words. I have been in search of a good burger sauce for a while and this one is getting close. I did a screenshot of the original, can't remember where its from anymore, and have been tweaking it each time I make it. I think its pretty strong on the mustard side so I have dropped that a little bit and have tried a couple different BBQ sauces. Also added a couple different BBQ rubs.

Here is the OG recipe that I started with
1 cup mayonnaise
8 teaspoons Dijon mustard
.5 cup plus 2 tablespoons BBQ sauce
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
.5 teaspoon kosher salt
2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

Ok, you got me interested in doing smash burgers. What is that you are using for a cook surface ? Looks like just a plate of mild steel, cleaned and polished.

Yes, you are correct. I went to a local steel fab shop and had them cut a 1/2" plate for me that fit inside my BGE. It works like a charm. I also use it for pizza, once you have it up to temp you can make pizza as fast as you want with no temp drop like some of the stones do.
 
For sure, they look great! I'm wondering what all was in the ground beef. Do I see onion soup mix?
 
I wouldn't have guessed 1/2 from the pics (not even close). Now that's what I call thermal mass.
Think I'll try using a round cast iron griddle on the weber to start.
