    Not unless you do like it's a grilled cheese. Just because you smashed the fuck out of them on the grill for years didn't make them terrible. Let that guilt go. I like to get a flame going like cali said but nothing extreme. Doesn't change anything with the burger. Unless you use BBQ sauce from a jar.

    Can't figure out why you would want to mash on it, knowing that you are pushing moisture out. But, you keep telling yourself it doesn't matter, I'll keep wowing err body w/ my burger skills.

    Yunno, I'll take your wiseassery and go one further because this thread contributes nothing towards adulthood, but my dad makes a sauce that sets fires all by itself. It's a killer sauce, but you dont really need charcoal, you can set that shit on fire and grill in amazement.

    I gotta believe though that the only reason (besides fire) anyone would smash a burger is because their burgers fall apart. Because they are stupid and don't know how to make a burger to begin with?

    Yeah but the fire you can start from smashing that fucker is so worth it. I simply throw the burger away now bc they are so much better when you don't they are now inedible.

    Make a couple of small burgers for smashing and eat the big unsmashed ones

    No actually I googled it to show the wife after walking into the kitchen and seeing her bend a rubber spatula in half, smashing on one in a skillet.
