No pictures because I am a shameful person, but today I made an elk burger with gruyere and griddled onions. Those Eclipses are great if you need out-of-season tomatoes.

Tomorrow I will elk burger again. That was really amazing, especially since I cooked the onions in the rendered fat from the elk meat.

I got this for my burg smashing needs. Its thick enough and big enough to smash, and the beveled edge is good for scraping and flipping. I could probably sharpen the edge if I wanted it to be even better.

Hey, that's my spatula. And yes, I got it specifically for smashing burgs, although it does also see some use when I scramble a lot of eggs on my griddle. When I smash burgs with it, I still take a mason jar in my other hand and press down hard as gently caress to get the patties super thin. I've pressed 4 oz patties down to a quarter/third of an inch thick doing this and you get SO MUCH crust. Granted, they stick out of the bun unless you've got big rear end kaiser rolls but who gives a poo poo?

I looove a patty that hang out the bun. Especially if it has that crust and a lace of crunchy cheese, om nom nom.

I'm probably buying that spatula, but I bought this trowel for my smash burgers. You probably couldn't use this on a cast iron skillet. Only on a flat surface I guess. But it lets me smash two patties at once.

They're both wrong, you can't put the lettuce in direct contact with the patty or it'll wilt from the heat.

Well the Google burger has a piece of tomato in between the patty and the lettuce, but I don't think sliced tomato belongs on burgers anyway (give me a slice of raw onion instead, thanks), so it's moot.

Yeah but the Google burger puts the cheese on the bottom, Jesus Christ I can't even look at it. I thought that was such an obvious sin it wasn't even worth mentioning.

Also, yes, a slice of red onion is far superior to the mushy bleh-ness of tomato.

I'm a sucker for the lettuce/onion/tomato trifecta, so long as all the ingredients are good. Problem is, most of the year fresh tomatoes look like ghost skeletons when you cut into them, so I have to wait until sweet, sweet summer homegrown tomatoes.

So you use 2 tools instead of just 1 when making smash burgers? Trowel requires something else to lift/move the burgers. Kenji is a cool and smart dude but it's creating additional dishes to clean.

Doesn't he use a trowel and then a paint scraper? What does he flip with?

Ranter

Yeah in his smash burger video, he uses a trowel and a paint scraper. It's fun but as the guy doing the dishes and trying to manage my kitchen space, it's kinda silly. And yes I'm aware that the spatula I bought is big but its mostly 'flat' and it's still 1 less than trowel and spatula/scraper.

Raw onion is great and I will loving fight anyone who says sauteed onions are better on a burger. At most, you can have both, but the raw onion is essential.

Sauteed onions are a total waste and one of the greatest burger-related disappointments in my life was when I ordered a burger with "onion" and it was one of the best burgers I'd ever seen... except it had these weird floppy translucent things on top instead of a nice crunchy slice of red onion.

I have a solid metal spatula. Just not as big as the one people are talking about now. The trowel allows you to easily smash because you're putting weight down from directly above the surface, rather than offset in the case of a spatula. Both work, but I can see benefits from each method.

I don't mind having two tools. The trowel and spatula together take no time to wash because they're just smooth metal.

You can apply pressure straight down with a spatula by just taking a rolling pin or a can or a glass or whatever and pressing down on the top side with that

OTOH I already have a metal spatula and a stiff object on hand in my kitchen right now instead of having to go to the hardware store and buy/find storage space for a trowel I will only ever use for one specific thing .
