      His testing is neither scientific nor repeatable. His burger mix is very much opinion.

        I've been throwing my unsalted burgers for years and they always break. I now know the recipe for a more durable burger patty for tossing.

          Kenji's book is hereby added to my Xmas list. I have never been let down by his tips and have, in fact, looked like a culinary champ.

                                onions are the devil. You mutants can't taste them. The only reason you like them, is because your taste buds are defective, and you only get a whiff of flavor, not the full putrefaction that an onion actually tastes of. Google it.

                                                      If you're doing med-rare burgers (pretty much everything other than smash) I cannot overstate how good heart and hanger steak is in the mix.

So when you take that elongated cut onion and put it in your mouth and chew them up what happens? It releases the nasties. Also, toast that bun in that fat sun. Flat burgers are a thing. They have their own beauty and their own place in the universe.. And so do these ragged beasts.
