Ingredients

Patties:

Fried Onions:

Coleslaw:

Directions

Special equipment:
a grill or smoker; a deep fryer
  1. For the patties: Prepare a grill for medium-high heat or prepare a smoker to 225 degrees F.
  2. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the celery, bell pepper and onion and saute until transparent and soft. Set aside to cool completely.
  3. While the vegetables are cooling, put the ground pork in a large bowl. Add the sauteed vegetables, BBQ sauce, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika and black pepper. Mix together with your hands until well-blended. Shape the meat into five 8-ounce patties.
  4. Grill or smoke the patties until the internal temperature on an instant-read thermometer registers 165 degrees F, about 4 minutes per side on a grill and 50 minutes in a smoker.
  5. For the fried onions: Heat a deep fryer with vegetable oil.
  6. Soak the julienned onion in a bowl with the buttermilk for 5 minutes. Combine the flour, cornmeal and Cajun seasoning in a shallow bowl. Remove the onion from the buttermilk (letting the excess drip off) and dredge in the seasoned flour. Working in batches, fry in the hot oil until crispy, about 2 minutes. Set aside.
  7. For the coleslaw: Combine the green and red cabbage, carrots and coleslaw dressing in a large bowl and toss well to coat.
  8. To assemble: Place some coleslaw in the bottom of each bun. Top with a patty, some BBQ sauce and fried onions. Add the bun tops and enjoy.
