Preheat your grill, griddle, or cast-iron pan. Make the burger sauce by mixing together the sauce ingredients.

Mix the seasonings and Worcestershire sauce with the ground beef in a large bowl.

Divide the ground beef into eight equal portions, each about a quarter pound or 4 ounces.

Once the grill is preheated, place the balls of meat directly on the grill. Flatten each patty.

Cook the patties for about 3-5 minutes, until the edges start to brown and the bottom is golden brown and nicely seared.

Flip the patty over and add a slice of cheese to melt. Cook for another 3-5 minutes until the cheese is melted and the burger is cooked.

Assemble your burger with the special sauce, smash burger, and any favorite toppings.  Enjoy!
