Ingredients

Sauce:

  • 1 packet KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce Mix & Dry Rub Sweet Honey
  • 1/2 cup lemonade
  • 1/4 cup raw apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp honey

Burger:

  • 1 lb 85% ground beef seasoned to preference
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 slice cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup shredded pulled pork leftover or freshly made
  • 4 strips bacon
  • 2 brioche or hamburger buns toasted

Instructions

Sauce:

  • Wisk together all ingredients in a medium bowl and set aside to thicken.

Burgers:

  • Cook the bacon as desired.
  • Form ground beef into two 1/2 lb patties, you can make 3 or 4 smaller patties if you'd like. Add butter to a medium skillet and melt over medium heat. Add patties to the pan and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on each side until the internal temperature is 165°F. In the last minute of cooking, add a slice of cheese to the top of each burger to melt. I usually toast my buns in the last few minutes of cooking too.
  • Warm up the pulled pork.
  • Spoon some of the prepared sauce onto the bottom of the bun, place burger on top of sauce, add half the pulled pork, then top with another spoonful of sauce, then add the bacon and top with the bun.
