Grilled Smash Burgers Recipe

These aren’t just any burgers; they’re smash burgers – a burger lover’s dream. With the Masterbuilt griddle insert (included in the Gravity Series 800 or additional accessory for the 1050), you achieve that perfect crispy crust while locking in all the juicy, mouthwatering goodness. It’s all about high heat and quick cooking, creating a burger that’s seared to perfection on the outside and tender on the inside.

"These Homemade Smash Burgers are quick and easy to make. They fly off the grill within minutes so it's a great for feeding a crowd and hosting a summer bbq!" - Lauren from Bright Moment Co.

Fire up your Masterbuilt griddle insert, get ready to smash, and savor the best homemade burgers you've ever tasted. Juicy, crispy, and utterly irresistible, these smash burgers will become your new go-to for every cookout.
