Thomas Scarano of The Gallery Backyard BBQ shares his recipe for this brown sugar infused smashburger, made on his Masterbuilt Gravity Smoker 1050.
Loosely packed 80/20 ground beef patties
Sliced Red Onion
of your favorite cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
Take your GrillGrates, and flip over to the flat side.
Turn your grill (Tom uses a Masterbuilt) to 700°F and heat your GrillGrates to 450°F.
Add your onion, mushrooms, salt & pepper and cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until done.
take your loosely-packed patties and coat them in light brown sugar
Add your loosely-packed patties and cook 20-30 seconds before the smash.
Now using parchment or butcher paper smash your 80/20 holding for 10 seconds. Repeat on both patties. Add sale & pepper.
Cook for 1 minute or until sides of the patties turn slit whitish in color. That's when it's time to flip. Usually under 1 minute per side.
Flip the burgers and add cheese.
After 30 seconds top both burgers.
