Prepare the grill for 2-zone cooking. Add 2-3 chunks of your favorite smoking wood, a handful of wood chips or 2-3 briquettes of Kingsford Smokehouse Briquettes.


Form the beef in to 3/4 lb patties, approximately 1/4 in wider than the hamburger buns.  Season both sides of burger patties liberally with The Shed Rib Rub.  Wrap leftover pulled pork loosely in foil along with apple juice leaving a small opening in the top seam to allow steam to escape.

Place burgers and pork packet on the grill over indirect heat, cover, and allow to smoke for 15-20 minutes.  Remove pork from the grill and open the top to allow the remaining steam to escape and rest until burgers are ready to be assembled.  Move burgers to the hot side of the grill and Grill burgers 3-4 minutes per side for medium rare or 5-6 minutes per side for medium.
