The Famous Pulled Pork Burger

It’s sunday – it’s hangover time – it’s burger time! And nothing beats a perfect pulled pork burger?? We have made pulled pork for years – even before it was know in Denmark. We make it from a whole ham, which we smoke at a low temperature for 18-20 hours before it’s pulled and eaten. Most people in Denmark use a pork collar which they prepare in the oven or  in a charcoal grill, but rarely in a smoker! Actually many famous Danish chefs recommend using pork collar and we couldn’t disagree more!! The biggest difference between the methods and meat cuts is the taste. Smoking the meat for hours and in a proper smoker gives the meat so much flavor and a beautiful beautiful color which you will never e able to obtain in the oven or in a charcoal grill.
But enough about our complaints and disagreements, and on to the pulled pork burger 🙂

We often make burgers: blue cheese burger, peanut butter burgers, cheese burgers etc. but this is without doubt our favorite burger in the whole world – and many of our friends seems to agree with this 🙂 You should try it – we’ll guarantee that you will LOVE it!


Ingredients (2 burgers)

1 1/2 cup pulled pork

1 cup coleslaw

2 burger buns (ciabatta is preferable)

1 tbsp. mayo

1/2 cup + 2 tbsp. whisky bbq sauce


Heat the pulled pork in a sauce pan and add 1/2 cup bbq sauce – stir to combine and remove from heat when the bbq sauce begins to caramelize.
