  • 1 pound ground beef I did 85/15
  • Seasoning of choice I did just salt and pepper
  • Oil
  • 1 tablespoon Butter optional
  • 4 Hamburger buns
  • Toppings optional (lettuce, tomato, onion, condiments, etc)


  • The first thing you are going to do is start heating up your Blackstone on high heat. Add oil to the griddle and let it fully get warm. I placed my burger press on the grill to get it warm up as well as it is heating up the grill.
  • Now you will crumble up your burger meat, and then loosely make 4 burger patties. Make sure to not pack the burgers together in balls or it will not smash properly.
  • Once the griddle is screaming hot, place your burger balls on the griddle. Use your burger press, or a spatula with no holes, and press firmly, smashing the burger to a thin patty.
  • Once your patties are smashed you will let them cook 3-4 minutes on the first side. Add seasoning on top of the patties.
  • Flip once the bottom has a crust layer on it. This is going to add incredible flavor. Flip and repeat the cooking process. Season the other side of the burger.
  • Place your buttered buns on the griddle top to toast, and then remove once golden brown.
  • Once done, assemble your burger and pile on your favorite toppings. If you want feel free to make cheeseburgers with the smashburgers!
  • Serve up the Smash Burger recipe with all your favorite toppings.



Burger - You can make your patties as large or small as you would like. Just adjust the cooking time to fit the size of your burgers.
Seasoning - You can mix seasonings in while you are forming your balls or once the smash burgers are on the Blackstone. It is up to you. Any of your favorite seasonings will work for this recipe.
Cast Iron Directions - If you have a cast iron skillet oil and heat on high and get it screaming hot. Place balls in the hot skillet, press down to smash and cook the same.
Parchment paper - You can place parchment paper in between burger and press or spatula to help prevent sticking. If you use parchment don't heat your burger press up.
