Blackstone Griddle Smash Burgers are amazing! Just like the original, these copycat burgers are filled with flavor, guaranteed to be one of the best summer treats you make on your Blackstone Grill.
My kids really love going to Smashburger, and they absolutely love their burgers, made with seasoned ground beef. My kids also love their chocolate shakes and a side of Smash Fries, but the Burgers are truly the star of their visit.
The secret is really in the Smash. This creates a juicy and tender burger but crispy edges, so you get the best of both worlds, and the Blackstone or Air Fryer makes for a great copycat Smashburger!

What Is Smashburger?
Smashburger’s are perfect for either Air Frying or Griddling since they are invented to be cooked on a flattop grill.
They use a process or technique to roll the meat into a meatball and then use a spatula to press the burger. This is said to allow them to sear, which locks in the flavor into the burger, and causes it to remain juicy. At the same time, other burger restaurants flatten their meat, which is thought to press the juices out of the burger.
It is wildly popular, in America and now there are about 370 restaurants worldwide.
Ingredients Needed To Make A Blackstone Griddle Smash Burgers
- Ground Chuck
- Black Pepper
- Brioche Bun
Start by mixing in a large mixing bowl the ground chuck, salt, black pepper. Scoop into 4-ounce meatballs.
Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
Oil the grill, and then turn the Blackstone on high. You want the Blackstone really hot before you place the burgers on.
Then, place the burgers onto the grill. Once the burgers are starting to brown, use your spatula and flatten the burgers. Cook until both sides are done.
When your burgers are almost done, add a slice of cheese.
Remove, add your toppings and enjoy!
How To Make A Smashburger in the Air Fryer
Prepare the meat as directed above. Due to how an air fry works, you will need to flatten the burger before adding it to the air fryer basket or tray.
Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees F, air fryer setting, and cook for 5 minutes, flip and smash, and air fry for another 5 minutes.
Use your meat thermometer to make sure that the meat is fully cooked before removing it. The USDA recommends the following guidelines for burgers.
