Equipment

  • Barbecue Grill

Ingredients

  • 4 5 oz hamburger patties fresh or frozen (4-6 ounce burgers may be used)
  • 8 oz pulled pork homemade or store bought
  • 4 hamburger rolls your choice
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 4 ounces bleu cheese
  • 4 tbsp barbecue sauce homemade or store-bought (I use Sweet Baby Rays)
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat the grill to 450 -500 degrees F.
  • Brush the patties with Worcestershire sauce and season with sea salt and black pepper. Keep the patties in the refrigerator until you start grilling.
  • Heat the pulled pork in a small pan. Add a little water to the pan so the pork doesn't dry out. You can also add some barbecue sauce to the pork, or additional seasonings. Keep warm until needed.
  • Place the patties on the preheated prepared grill season side down. Cook for 4 minutes and turn the patty over to continue cooking.
  • Depending upon how well done you want your burger you may turn the meat twice more. This will help the patty cook evenly.
  • When the burger is almost done, place your hamburger buns on the grill to toast them.
  • When the burger is at the desired doneness (use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature) place a slice of cheese on top of the burger. Allow the cheese to fully melt.
  • Remove the burgers from the grill and place on a plate. Allow the burger to rest for a minute before placing it on the bun. You will get some juices flowing out of the meat. This could make the bun soggy. If you don't mind a soggy roll and want the added flavor of the juices, you can place the burger directly from the grill onto the bun.
  • Top the cheeseburger with preheated pulled pork, barbecue sauce and bleu cheese crumbles. Add the top of the roll and serve.
