I’ve been grilling a long time and I think my burger game is pretty tight. I like them grilled because I can cook a half dozen at a time (if I need to) and the smokiness doesn’t jack up our small kitchen (when we cook bacon, the smell/smoke seems to linger forever). I’ve had diner-style (or smashed) burgers before and they’re definitely tasty. I’m not 100% into the greasiness, though, which is probably why I prefer the grilling.
This article at Serious Eats, however, has me straight-up inspired to get some burger smashing going on a cast iron skillet.
I mean, come on. Even I, a long-time grilling advocate, gets some saliva turning at this photo:
