Pulled Pork Burger

It's the Fantastical Food Fight where each month Sarah gives us a food challenge and this month it is a burger.  What a perfect time to do this, right before our upcoming Memorial Day holiday!

We cheat a bit on this burger.  We have a BBQ place about a mile from us that makes indescribably good pulled pork. This is the pork we use to make these burgers so delicious. It's a shortcut that we are happy to make.
What goes into a good burger? There are a few tips that I'd like to share with you. My husband says his burgers are so good because he doesn't handle the meat very much. He also seasons the burgers before he grills and afterward, while they are steaming hot.  He likes to grill them to an internal temperature of 135 and then let them rest a few minutes before serving to let the juices redistribute themselves throughout the meat.  What are your favorite tips for a good burger?
