Every summer (or even winter...) barbecue cries out for a delicious melt in the mouth burger. This recipe by our friend, cookery writer and barbecue expert, Genevieve Taylor does just the job.
"What is a smash burger?", I hear you say. A smash burger is basically a rough pattie that starts out its life as a neat ball of mince and ends up smashed on the griddle to create frayed, crispy edges that become the sort of burger that dreams are made of.
For this recipe you need a chapa (also known as a plancha or hot plate) and a cloche that you can cover it with. You can also improvise with a sturdy old baking sheet and a metal mixing bowl, you don't need fancy kit to create this humble yet delicious recipe.
