Notes & Tips
To make a double burger, smash two 85 gram portions of meat to make 2 slightly smaller patties. The smaller patties cook about 30 seconds less than the 100 gram patties.
The meat should be loose. Don't be tempted to form into a tight patty. It is the star of the show and shouldn't be overpowered by the seasoning and condiments.
