Now, Craig wants to share some of his secrets on how to make perfect Smashburgers at home, even better than Shake Shack. You’ll even learn how to make a few regional varieties that you probably have never heard of. Some of these varieties originated in Missouri and date back to the 1930s. Craig is also going to show you how to make some of his favorite tacos, including an easy weeknight fish taco. As usual, there’ll be plenty of food to go around, so be sure to come hungry."
