  1. To make Pulled Pork, remove net from roast. Rub favorite BBQ seasoning all around the pork and place in 4- to 5-quart slow cooker. Pour beer and liquid smoke around sides. Cover and cook on Low 8 to 10 hours (High: 4 to 5 hours).
  2. Remove pork from slow cooker with tongs and place in large container. Use tongs, 2 forks or fingers to shred pork. Set aside 2 cups of pork. Add liquid from slow cooker to remaining pulled pork for desired moistness. Cover and refrigerate or freeze for another use.
  3. To make Bud-Razz Chipotle BBQ Sauce, combine all ingredients in medium saucepan; bring to a boil over medium-high heat; boil 5 minutes, stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Gently stir ½ cup BBQ sauce into 2 cups pulled pork.
  4. To make Burgers, heat charcoal or gas grill to medium. Gently combine ground pork, ground beef, beer, and favorite BBQ seasoning; form into 6 (1-inch thick) burgers. Grill 5 minutes per side, until internal temperature reaches 160°F. Top each burger with slice of Cheddar cheese, let melt.
  5. Place burgers on bottom buns; spoon about 1/3 cup pulled pork with BBQ sauce onto each burger. Top each with 1 slice bacon and a dill pickle plank. If desired add more BBQ sauce, then close sandwich with top bun.
