    I like Babish, but is it really Basics if you gotta go through all the effort of making your buns and grinding your meat for burgers. Was hoping for some more technique.

    Dont smash your mint!!! Gently muddle the mint or you will release the chlorophyll and it will taste bitter and earthy.

    I've been getting in to smash burgers lately and I have to say I am in love. Make sure that bun in nice and butter toasted and I like to make very thinly sliced onions and put them on top of one of the burgers after the smash.

    I don't know if anyone at your wonderful channel/company goes back to read comments this long after the video has been posted, but I would like to suggest that "new hotness" is a MIIB, Men In Black II reference. I was far too lazy to read all the comments so I may not be first say this. I didn't see any from what I did get through. Thank you.

    What I like to do is to make the beef into a kebab meat mince (mince meat with spices, eggs, onions, garlic and ginger). Fry the mince on a pan. You get flavourful burgers and juicy patties

    That's is a pentagram, it have absolutely nothing to do with Satan like at all, it have been used by many religions through out history notably the Wiccan religion, but also Christianity as a symbol for the five virtues and five wounds of Jesus, nothing to do with Satan, the same goes for the upside down cross know as the Saint peters cross.... Smh Babish. But that's a tasty looking burger.
