A "Sizzle-Q" Griddle/Flat Top In Action on Big Joe I wanted to do smash burgers on Big Joe. And I was thinking what I had that I could cook them on so that cooking 8 burgers would not take all night. Hummm.... I recalled I had a Sizzle-Q (http://www.littlegriddle.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=SQ180) from a Sam's Club special deal a couple of years back stashed in the bottom storage area of my gasser. Would it fit on Big Joe, he asked? And since it was Big(Red)Joe ... in his usual obedient manner, he readily accommodated the Sizzle-Q. I placed on on the main grill grid and cooked with direct heat, settling Joe in at 400 degrees before putting the Sizzle-Q in place and letting it heat up. One could probably go to 450 if they wanted. But, 400 seemed to work well. The burgers were cooked lid closed. I hit the flat top with grape seed oil where I wanted to plant a burger and slapped it down and smashed the burgers (~ 6 oz balls of Costco ground beef). Then seasoned with a mix of salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder and smoked paprika. The Sizzle-Q would actually hold about five/six of these full bun size burgers at a time, especially if one put on three at a time, then when they were flipped moved them to permit three more to be slapped down and smashed. But three or even four at a time was a very user friendly approach. Here it is in action: Sizzle-Q on Big Joe (yes.. the small cast iron frying pan is being used as my burger press) Bet you can smell the goodness! It is a shame you can't be here for a bite and a beverage. Hope you find this information useful.
