Smokin' Joe's thick or thin patty burgers are a real crowd pleaser. Smokin' Joe uses a hamburger meat press to get the desired thickness for each burger that your crowd craves. Be it then or thick patties, here's how you do it:
Step 1 - Hamburger Press.
Start with a Hamburger patty press like this one:
Step 2- Wax Paper.
Next Smokin' Joe suggests using Wax Paper to press the hamburger meat onto in the press which can also be found on a site like Amazon.com:
Step 3- Season The Meat.
Then put a piece of 6" Wax paper in the bottom of the press.
Then set the thickness of the hamburger press to your desired thickness by adjusting the depth of the press and then fill the press with your ground beef that has been seasoned. Press the meat and release. Take out the patty and keeping the wax paper on the bottom of the patty and repeat as many times as you need burgers made.
Place on the grill and flip patties as needed on the grill.
Step 4 - Toast the Bun.
Don't Forget the Bun!
For an extra special touch spread butter or Olive Oil on the insides of both layers of buns. Then place the buns with the Buttered or Oiled sides facing down on the grill for just a few moments to give it that extra special taste to the whole Hamburger experience.
Step 5. - Serve and Enjoy!
Serve, and Enjoy! Serve with your favorite BBQ sauce - we prefer Hogs 'N Heat, or Ketchup, Mustard and Pickles to choice and of course lettuce, onions and/or tomatoes.
