News: Carl's Jr. / Hardee's - New Memphis BBQ Burger

Squeezing barbecue into the tail end of summer, Carl's Jr. and Hardee's now offer the Memphis BBQ Burger (well, Hardee's now offers, Carl's Jr. starts offering it tomorrow).

Touting the pairing of "meat-on-meat," the burger joins smoked, pulled pork and a charbroiled beef patty with crispy onion strings, American cheese, and Sweet Baby Ray's Memphis-Style BBQ sauce on a sesame seed bun.

"Meat-on-meat" (they've also referred to them as "meat-as-a-condiment") burgers are a bit of a "thing" at Carl's Jr. and Hardee's. In the past, they've added pastrami, steak, prime rib, and roast beef to their burgers.

The Memphis BBQ Burger starts at $3.79 (and going up with patty size) and is also available in a combo with fries and a drink.

Of course, barbecue pulled pork has found itself on the menu at one fast food chain or another every now and again. Indeed, it has been offered at Burger King all summer long with the Memphis Pulled Pork BBQ Sandwich which, like the Memphis BBQ Burger, also features a barbecue sauce from the folks at Sweet Baby Ray's.
