A Burger Scholar Teaches His Son How to Make the Perfect Cheeseburger | Burger Scholar Sessions

Published on Apr 5, 2021
In this very special bonus episode, Burger Scholar George Motz is passing on his burger skills to his 13-year-old son, Mac! That's right. While Mac has had the good fortune of eating his dad's burgers his entire life, he's never actually made one himself. In an effort to raise $50,000 for Common Threads-a non-profit that provides cooking instruction for kids-George will teach his son how to cook his favorite lacy-edge smashburger. Will Mac live up to his dad's expectations? Will he pass the hamburger IQ test!? Tune in to find out.

  • YOU DID IT MAC! Like if you think Mac deserves an Emmy

    • I need advice on a good indoor flat. I miss my gas stove and my wife wont let me have one.

    • Kid was a natural on camera and entertaining good job!

    • A surefire professional on camera

    • @שחף בן דוד what?

    • Sorry George but is that your son or daughter? Very confusing....

  • This seriously reminds me of my dad teaching me how to cook good food. He passed away a couple months ago. Thanks.

  • I like that duo. I laugh so much and learned something😃

  • Already love them Motz! You raised a great kid.

  • The new generation is eating only McDonald's fries and McChicken.

  • Is Mac a vampire?

  • The real Big Mac.

  • I love this guy

  • 9:08 - no need for a paternity test

  • kid Mac will become big Mac someday and he is in the right hand


  • Does anyone know what size or how many oz that scooper is?


  • The overly long scientific burger smash speech 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. Golden editing and a nice son to just listen.

  • Its not a question of where it grips it, it's a question of weight ratios.

  • That child needs some sunlight

  • 9:07 they both push their hair back the same way at the exact time

  • George needs a haircut

  • Too much banter, too little cooking.

  • Mac has social awareness beyond his years. Very funny. Thanks guys.

  • I wonder if he knows that his son is a homosexual

  • He picked his nose 7:08 😂

  • kid doesn't know who Johnny Knoxville is?

  • uff i dont wanna touche the 19000 clean likes i want, but its too clean to break it

  • "He Made a Burger" Amen.

  • Focus Mac Focus

  • I didn't know there were still kids that acted like kids. How refreshing

  • The whole time I was watching this video, I was saying “Yep. That’s George’s kid alright.” They even play with their hair the same 🤣

  • my guy definitely has some raw meat in his hair

  • That kids appearance literaly screams iron deficiency


  • Yo son needs to watch Jackass season 1 asap

  • mac is annoying as shit

  • ive never seen such an annoying child in my life

  • Wait... The kid asked who is Johnny Knoxville... Im getting old.

  • Good job guys. Awesome father/son stuff dude.

  • 9:08 they both synchronized lol

  • Mac is the definition of ADHD

  • IDC if he didn't know Jackass he knew Monty Python and that's enough for me to like him♥️♥️♥️♥️

  • 9:07 Like Father like son

  • This was a fun episode! You are so alike! Can you make more cooking with family episodes? Test their skills?

  • I miss my Dad

  • He he a her?

  • Do both of them have ADD??

  • "Here is the thing about smashing. Once you smash the first time you can't go back to resmash" -Geroge Motz

  • Like father like son @9:08 -- the resemblance is uncanny!

  • Classic, the Burger Expert having a son named “Mac” (Big Mac 🍔) Excellent!!!!! 💕

  • This is so precious to watch. The info, the family vibing energy, the genuine excitement from both of them, and, I would be remiss to not mention, the "zoning out" editing- perfectly done. So wholesome. The encyclopedia should have a reference to this video next to an entry of "proud parents." This was so good, and infectiously joyful.

  • I know of Johnny Knoxville, but I am proud to say that he was after my time. I understand he is Jackass - a title that I would not be proud not to bear - although I'll bet some will now bestow a moniker on me at least as colorful. Fun fun :-)

  • Man. That's just a beautiful kid. People pay thousands for a smile like that kid's! There's nothing better than seeing the pride in a dad's eyes when he realizes his kid can potentially do all things better than himself some day ❤️

  • Is Georges son a vampire? Why so pale?


  • If he was my son n he kept playing with his hair over my chopping board like that the clippers would come out n he would have a 0.5 all over then we would carry on with the rest of the video!

  • Content Kings 2050: Mac Motz and Rex Jones

  • Making Monty Python references at that age? That's awesome as hell

  • Not surprising that George's kid rules lol

  • they had the joint together! cheers stoners!

  • It makes me sad that this guy is influencing the next generation.........

  • George Mots Please for Gods sake have a bigger influence on your child. He's not on the right path LOL Already acts like an Instagram fboy

  • The other kids have lemonade stands at the fundraiser. Mac has a 🍔 stand 👍🤜🤛✊.

  • he was probably up till 4am playin warzone

  • father to son Bro Bro

  • Super cool kid!

  • This video sucks because of the kid

  • Yo mac was funny af lol

  • 9:07 Yah, they are definitely father an son, my God. The did the exact same motions in unison with the same deer in the headlight look.

  • 💩🌚💩

  • 9:08 theyre so in sync!!!

  • Is that boy from My Chemical Romance?

  • This is so perfect

  • I wonder how much hair was in that burger cause that kid cannot keep his hands out of his hair

  • Like father, like son!

  • He looks like he's about to drop a pop song.

  • This kid oozes with personality just like his dad. Wholesome

  • Things always taste better when you've made it yourself!

  • This was hard to watch.

  • 9:09 perfectly in sync pull there hair back

  • he said Johnny Knoxville older brother and i can't unsee it

  • Man, Mac hurt himself five seconds into the video. He's already on the road to being a successor

  • 10:30 kekw

  • George Motz looks like Johnny Knoxville if he decided to cook instead of making jackass 4 and i kinda love it, like they have the same face XD

  • Did he say damn at 9:22

  • Mac's a born natural!! :D

  • Can I just say, this was so much fun to watch! I couldn't stop laughing the entire video - the two of you have a great dynamic and relationship!

  • I was worried this was a fake video with a look-a-like because George didn't burn himself till around 9:30

  • please do the xtudo from brazil

  • As much as I love these burgers, I just cannot sanction anyone putting ONE slice of cheese on anything. *The minimum acceptable slices of cheese is THREE.* In unrelated news, I have gained a lot of weight. 🤔 I wonder why? 🤣😂🤣 🧀🍰

  • Are we sure this is George's son?

  • I don't love Ketchup, but the ketchup and mayo mixing into thousand/fry sauce on the bun is necessary on a standard burger. Also, that burger, cheese, bun is so sad, that's the most basic kids burger ever. Introduce your kids to some vegetables.

  • OF COURSE his son's name is Mac... Is his daughter's name Patty?

  • Can someone please tell me when you know it's cooked the first side?!? They edit it out!

  • I need to learn this cooking technique, where can I get a pan like this?

  • NOTHING like a kid that can't be TF still no matter what his parents tax bracket is to humble said parent in public. Good job friends.

  • Kids are so cringe.

  • “I’m already grooming my replacement” Phrasing, George

  • His son could play in twilight as a vamp

  • George you're the best. I do have few questions to you and if you could take some of your time to answer them it will be appreciated ☺️ What's the temperature of the plancha or griddle you use? What part of beef you use to make your minced meat for burger? And what's the diameter of the ice cream scooper you use? I hope I'll get a response from you... I wanna teach that to my kids 🙂🙏

  • Johnny Knoxville and Wolverine love child!

  • no kids kids on the show please

  • Trisha Paytas should be on Hot Ones! Or at least on First We Feast somewhere! I WANT TO SEE TRISHA PAYTAS!
