2 lbs ground beef, made into patties
2 regular sized jars barbecue sauce
6 oz French's French Fried Onions
2 cups margarine
8 slices American Cheese

The first thing you will want to do is start the pork. This take the most time so you will want to do this about six hours before you want to eat in advance. Take the pork roast and put in the crockpot set on low.After adding the roast you will add both jars of BBQ to the crock pot and set a timer for 5 hours. Now close the lid and walk away. While you should patty the burgers and slice your tomatoes.

When the timer goes off, you will want to head over to your stove and set a large frying pan on medium-high. Set your burger patties in the frying pan and cover. Put your melted margarine and oil into a medium pot on high heat. Wait for it to begin to boil and add your fried onions. Let the onions sit in margarine for 2 minutes and remove with a fork onto a plate with a paper towel on it.

Separate the onions into 4 piles and go flip your burgers. Scoop the onions onto the burgers and place 2 slices of cheese on each. Add 1/4 cup water to the pan and cover until the cheese is melted. Set out your buns and place lettuce, tomato, and pickle, and pulled pork on buns as desired. Place burgers on bun and close.
