Add the crab meat to the beef. Sprinkle with seafood deasoning and kosher salt. Mix with hands until crab and spices are evenly distributed, being careful not to overmix.

Remove sauce pan from grill and stir. Flip the burgers and continue to grill for another 4-5 minutes. Spread the buns with butter and place them cut side down on the outer edges of the rack. Grill approximately 2 minutes until lightly toasted. Place 1 slice of provolone cheese on top of each patty and grill for another minute until the cheese starts to melt. Remove the lightly toasted buns. To assemble the burgers: Lightly brush some sauce on each roll bottom, place 1 patty, 1 Tablespoon sauce and 1/2 cup of romaine lettuce on top.
