  • Form beef into four patties. Season with your favorite rub.
  • Preheat grill with cast iron insert on high heat.
  • When pan is hot, cook burgers for about 4 minutes per side,flipping once, until cooked to your preferred doneness. I cook mine to medium-about 145° internal temperature. Top with cheese until just melted.
  • Meanwhile, place pulled pork on griddle and heat through.  Toast buns until golden brown.
  • Assemble the burgers by layering two burger patties on a bun, topped with two bacon slices, two onion rings, and a handful of heated pulled pork.
  • Top generously with Head Country Hickory Smoke BBQ sauce and top bun.
