In Side Out Burgers

Traditionally we season burgers on the OUTside...but not today...it's time for
LONG JOHN's In Side Out Burgers
1)...Start with 1/3 lb of 80 / 20 hamburger. Divide it in half & roll each half into a ball.
2)...Place each ball of meat between 2 sheets of plastic or tissue, & gently smash with a sturdy flat   bottom pan (Cast iron is my favorite). Each patty should be the same thickness (approx 1/4 inch)
3)...Season ONE of the patties. carefully lay the UN-seasoned patty on top of the seasoned patty
4)...Crimp the edges of the combined patty stack to seal the edges.
5)...Put the combined patties between plastic again & use a pan to gently but firmly press the 2 patties together.
6)...Preheat a pan with a dash (1 teaspoon) of oil, & cook to taste.
In tonight's version, I added a couple of squirts of Tobasco on it before flipping the burger, and after the burger was done I put bbq sauce on the burger, served on a seeded bun

    I don't get it either...Aren't spices on the outside going to create the same taste on the inside? Salt the outside, salt the inside. Doesn't that make the burger salty???

    I don't just use salt...in this case I used a spice blend (Smokehouse Maple)...
     
    The flavors come out different...than if seasoned traditionally on the outside...
     
    People have done this for a long time with cheese...this is stepping it up a bit...try it...

    To me the outside spices would taste better because the cooking of them brings out their flavor. 
     
    Same reason you don't spice after cooking except for something like fresh basil.
