Smash burgers are by far my most popular way of making burgers. They aren’t complicated, but they’re packed with great grill flavor (with a little bit of a crunchy edge!) and topped with fresh ingredients and a wonderful Smash burger sauce. Nothing fancy here, just great tastes.
My smash burger sauce has a bit of pickle juice added for extra flavor. I have learned to never, ever toss out pickle juice. When that jar of pickles is done, there’s still wonderful flavor to be had in the juice. I use it in sauces like this, and also for marinating fried chicken or chicken wings.
You can also buy pickle juice in a jug. Ain’t life great?!
I love making smash burgers on my grill and on my Griddler.
