BBQ pork burger with what cheese?

Got some ground pork. (Pork Shoulder)
Think I'm going to make a HONEY BARBECUE PORK BURGER. (honey BBQ sauce, brown sugar, molasses, dry mustard, soy sauce).

1-What would you suggest for a cheese? I have to have cheese on a burger!
cheddar? sharp? or EXTRA SHARP? Any other kinds of exotic cheese that goes with the above BBQ ingredients?

2-How about an onion? I love onions! A regular onion or a sweet onion ????

3-How about a slice of PANCETTA with the burger? Or how about just regular bacon? Maple smoked?

4-What kind of buns? Any special bread type? How about KING HAWAIIAN sandwich rolls?


6- Lettuce?

7- Any other suggestions?

Just curious how you all would make this pork burger with these ingredients!

Thanks! :)

Were it me, I'd have some grilled onions and a white cheese like monterey jack and that's it. I want the flavor of the pork and bbq sauce, don't need all the other stuff to make me happy. As for the bun, I'd opt for a large kaiser roll.

for Pork done sweet like that, I think a Stilton or Danish blue cheese should go quite nicely with it :)

I'd go with a sharp cheddar, a slice of grilled pineapple, and Dijon mustard.
The King's Hawaiian bun sounds good, but I'd toast it. Serve a couple of olives and a slice of pickle on the side.

Blue would be good.

Smoked gouda or aged gouda. Smoked sharp cheddar.

Pepper Jack Cheese, if you're a chile freak, the habanero jack.

Some doctored cream cheese. Add some barbecue rub, some liquid smoke, some hot sauce, maybe some lemon/lime juice or cider vinegar.

I'd probably go with a smoked cheddar or pepper jack, but a number of cheese would work well

It's hard for me to even consider a cheese but I might opt for Provolone - possibly the pepper jack would be the ONLY other option I would look into. Something to not conflict with the BBQ sauce - I can't quite see a stilton or bleu with a bbq sauce. Any kind of onion - red, sweet, white, I'd probably go with the red.

The BBQ sauce is what's throwing me. If I make burgers I want a burger - if I make pulled pork I'll have bbq sauce and slaw. Hey, what about some coleslaw on that pork burger???? Now THAT would be good! JMHO of course!

As far as mustard I'd go with a spicy brown.

I can see cheese with a mustard based barbecue sauce--my favorite--or the hot vinegary NC sauce, especially the Georgia White barbecue sauce based in Mayonnaise.

It's tougher with the tomato based ones, but many of them are based in ketchup so why not?

white American, or smoked Gouda. heavily caramelized onions, hot honey mustard...

If the pork is moist enough though, no cheese.
