  • Beef Patty 1.5 pounds / 24 Ounces

  • Sharp Cheddar - 4 Slices

  • Pulled Pork 0.5 pounds / 8 Ounces

  • Dill Pickle Chips 0.25 pounds / 4 Ounces

  • Hickory BBQ Sauce 0.25 pounds / 4 Ounces

  • Brioche Style Bun - 4 Buns



  1. Divide the meat into 6 ounce portions. Form each portion loosely into a 3/4-inch-thick patty and make a depression in the center with your thumb. Season both sides of each burger with salt and pepper.

    • Take care not to over work the meat
    • Allowing the meat to warm up to near room temperature will provide a better sear that will lock in flavor

  3. Purchase store-bought pulled pork or reference the recipe here: Easy Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Recipe
