    7. Chris Bailey

      Would've been nice that after they cooked the burgers, they came back together again and talked about each one together.

    8. RedRisotto

      You wouldn't need a wallpaper scraper to get your wallpaper thin patty off the damned grill if you used more meat than in a Happy Meal. Burger #1. Cool. But frying in beef drippings will kill you and you will shit where you stand. Burger #2. No different that just stacking patties (just less crust.) (Winner! Even though messed up.) Burger #3. You don't need beef drippings in your cheese it will just make you shit. (Pretentious nonsense.)

    9. Plumbaman13

      Alvin could’ve called it the fold over , meat flaps doesn’t sound right especially being beef

    10. Korey Simon

    14. 3820jack

      I can't remember craving for a burger until I watched this! Wow the last burger really got my attention! I grew up in the early 60's and our Saturday night special was beans hotdogs and hamburgers. At that time Teflon was still a pipe dream and my mother used an electric fry pan. The pan created this crust of the now smash burger and I haven't had them since those days.

      Alvin is not a burger expert, he is a burger magician... and I mean making them disappear, a lot of them.

    28. True North

      Defo gonna make Kenji's burger one day - minus the beef cheese. I think American will suffice - but I love the idea.

    29. Belgand

      Now go in the opposite direction and cover the apex of the burger-making art: thick burgers grilled over charcoal.

      1. ItsSomeDeadGuy

        Grilled burgers are shit. Dry meat, no crust.

    45. Nicolas

      Oh I'm so happy to see Kenji López-Alt! I read his articles! He's the BESTEST! Ok, George is the bestest too, so humble, so humorous, loving the story and we all know he loves the taste... but leaves it to his friends to make magnificent burgers. He just... makes the first. And teaches us a wonderful lesson of humility. You guys are good.

    49. Hulk Smash

      Best Smash Burger vid on youtube. Nobody else comes close.

    50. El Burrito

      Somehow I've just never heard of a Smashburger until I started watching The Burger Show and now it's all I can think about. I can't wait to try making my own smashburgers

      1. Hulk Smash

        It's tricky, you have to smash the burger just right.

    51. Bbearhug Thomas


    52. Bbearhug Thomas

      I more worried about that fat guy's health than his complicated and time consuming 10" patty.

    53. Erica Hughes

      The alcoholic british undoubtedly colour because repair reciprocally brake near a acrid athlete. polite, glib balinese

    54. Exercise Historian

      Kenji wearing apizza scholls! Awesome

    56. Yuri Travels

      Hamburger is or actually chessburger for my choice is something that always keeps bringing me back to that first time or my first drive-in movie theatres I was in on my teenage years dates back in 80’s and 90’s Now during pandemic I found a great angus meat supplier near my house and for past 9 month I eat burgers at list 2-3 times a week

    57. Christopher Gentry

      Kenji's burger idea is brilliant, especially the "beef cheese." Call this burger the "Best of Both Worlds Burger."

    58. Richard Fox

      I'm glad there's such a thing as a 'burger scholar'.

    59. MapleBalls

      a hole and a slant saved it eh?

    60. Suvir Sinha

      It’s not George Motz if he’s not burning his mouth and/or hands.

    61. grungeman86

      As usual, Kenji knocked it out of the park. Such a talented master

    62. shocker233

      this is awesome

    63. Googol

    66. Jacob Gillispie

      What is y'all's 3 favorite burger places? And single best burger you've ever had? Best one I've had is a "higher" end burger but it also isn't an overly over the top burger. It had bun, meat, lettuce, garlic aioli, and bacon marmalade.

    67. Boots

      How to make a smashburger. Step 1, drive to Smashburger.

    68. Hugh Janis

      Nobody can make a better smash burger than culver's

    69. Roger Moore

      1st was nostalgic, 2nd burger was the best imho. 10:30 THIRD burger is NOT a smash burger by any stretch of the imagination. I am sure it is a great burger, but you have clearly diverged from the topic at hand. I like you scientific explanations and you get mad props for that.

    70. John

      George has an annoying thing that when he is near finishing a sentence or finishing a bite of something he stops and coughs or some other action. He does this every time. Odd stuff.

    71. Wolffy241

      Third burger should be called "When world's collide"

    72. Unfair Advantage

      doesn't anyone flame broil burgers anymore?????

    73. eswar hv

      Hi George, I Sid like to advise u to look up 'Chapli Kebab' it's a form of beef party similar to what u have demonstrated here. The spices 're similar to the 'Fat Mo' burger u demosntrated

    74. HLG_TheShepherd

    80. Pj Spirit

      Kenji doesn’t give a fuck. He’ll do whatever do long as it tastes good and he’ll tell you why it works with SCIENCE and I love it

    81. Father Noon

    92. Xavier Bolivar

      Lmao, when Kenji said his was gonna get weird. Beef cheese was definitely not what i was expecting... lol

    93. Tom bryan

    94. John A

    95. K Connell

      You have to use two spatulas, for controlling the flip and smashing better

    96. 99Jaapie
