As you walk into the new Smashburger at Owenfield Drive and Windbrush Avenue, along U.S. 23 at Lewis Center, a sign immediately explains the restaurant’s name.The sign says the burger starts out as a “never-frozen ball of one hundred percent certified Angus beef.”Owner/operator Drew Hansen described what happens next.“We cook our meat in a smashing process,” Hansen said. “We put a raw burger patty down on a buttered 400-degree grill and smash it for 10 seconds with a special plate, which forms it into a burger and sears it into the grill. Then we put our special seasoning on there, and when it’s done, all the juiciness and flavor is sealed into it.”
