My go-to for smash burgers is to Traeger the 6-8 oz seasoned balls at 200* for 30 minutes and finish them on a preheated cast iron skillet to get that great crust.

My last Traeger burgers were 2 quarter pounders smashed together to make 1/2lbs... seasoned up big time... Low for smoke, then cranked up... those were BAD@$$ indeed... LOVE burgers on Traeger

I usually do 1/4 or 1/3 lb stuffed burgers. Smoked at 180 for about 30 mins. And then seared for a minute or two per side. They come out in the medium-rare/medium range.

I use my Grill Grates for burgers and dogs at 450f all the way. Grate side up for grill marks or flip them over for some real smash burgers. Best tool I’ve purchased for the Traeger.
