How to Cook 4 Regional Smashburgers with George Motz | Burger Scholar Sessions
In the Season Finale of Burger Scholar Sessions, George Motz is teaching you how to cook four regional smashburgers: the Wisconsin butter burger, the New Mexico green chile burger, the Michigan olive burger, and the Montana nutburger. Sometimes regional burgers are defined by a singular topping-and as George shows us, that one topping can be incredible. Keep up with Motz as he guides us through a speed round of regional toppings!

      Love his show. It's educational, funny and just simply brilliant. George, do you ONLY put salt and not both salt and pepper on smash burgers? I am from New England (MA) and I actually never had a smashbuger in my life or even seen a place in my state offer such a burger but they look just f*cking amazing.

    Nut burger just is terrible. No wonder it is served in only one place. The other 3 were just fine. The film quality, effects and the way he cooks the burgers are quite amazing! Great quality vids for sure.

    I hope that’s Hatch New Mexico Chile, because if it isn’t you’re missing out SO MUCH! Omg this guy brought back a tumble weed to hang I’m his house 😂 When I was a kid growing up in New Mexico we would go and get the tumble weed plants while they are green, Pull them from the ground and tie a rope to the stem and throw them in the rio grande and the ditches for the farmers water and pull the, out 15- 30 minutes later and would have a ton of crawfish and boil them on the bank with my brothers and family

  • Wadar

    How about go on a huge bike ride, come back, eat a green chili burger and then take a nap! 👍

    a real green chile burger has asadero cheese in it, man... I grew up in El Paso, and just an hour away from where I grew up was the city of Las Cruces. there, you can find some of the best green chile burgers in the state. however... southern new mexico and northern new mexico both have their own twists on the burger. I personally prefer it with asadero cheese.

    You know he's lieing about how good the butter is because the butter there is trash. It isn't creamy. It's gross. And they stopped that law long long ago. Get Vermont butter. Thats real butter. Wisconsin butter is just margarine

    My grandma made a variation of the olive burger. Instead of mayonnaise she'd use whipped cream cheese to avoid the mess. As for the nut-burger not going mainstream, to many nut allergic people for commercial production.

    I am from he city of Lima in west central Ohio. Kewpee burgers has been a staple of my city since 1928, you are wrong on the notion you can only get the olive burger in Michigan, when there are 3 locations in my town.

    Thanks so much for describing all the regional burgers you've encountered! Bishop's Fine Food Restaurant is famous for their 'Nutty Muffit', which once was a 'Double Cheeseburger topped with our homemade coleslaw & gourmet chopped nuts'. This restaurant was a drive-in that originated in the 1950s in Wooster, OH, but has since re-located twice. Sadly, the burgers used today look like Costco/Kirkland frozen quarter-pound 'Ground Beef Patties'. Regardless, the 'Nutty Muffit' is still a much loved menu item, but the real draw to Bishop's is their onion rings -- just get them cooked 'well done', as they're fairly greasy, but delicious. Should you ever visit this area, also search out 'Guerne Heights Drive In' for their 'Deep-fried franks nestled in a grilled New England Hot Dog Roll, topped with quality ingredients.' I'd recommend the 'Ol' Dirty Dog' (with Ol' Dirty Sheets Hot Sauce). And if you love garlic, also search out the much loved Coccia House pizza. (People will probably notice the garlic scent coming out of your pores the next day.) [Just make certain you bring cash, as they don't accept credit cards -- and stick to pepperoni, as their sausage is not as flavorful as most.]

    If you substitute the buns for keto bread, most of these burgers are actually pretty good for a ketogenic diet. Butter, nuts with heavy cream, stewed green chilies, olives with mayo (the only problem is the oil in the mayo, but you can substitute that for sour cream). These are great ways to eat a burger.

    To my own embarrassment, I would normally dismiss a guy with that hair and sideburns as a crazy fringe hipster type....but good God, the personality, the passion...I want to have a whiskey with this guy so bad it hurts...and maybe a burger or two, obviously. Keep this shit up, it's amazing. Unfettered, humorous...."fuck off bird" is something I can totally relate to. This stuff is solid gold.

    Lmao you can tell he doesn't like the 1st one and the last one. He's just being a good sport about it lmao. When the butter burger comes around though, he takes these enormous bites because that shit is probably really good.
