  • In a large bowl combine the pork, green onion, ginger, allspice, and pepper.
  • Form into 4 equally-sized patties. Place on wax paper and refrigerate for up 2 hours.
  • Fire up your grill. Clean the grates well.
  • Lightly oil the outsides of the patties. Not much, just a bit so they don't stick.
  • Grill the patties on one side for 5 minutes.
  • Flip and continue cooking until done, reaching at least 145 F internally. I took mine to 160 F because some folks still aren't used to pink pork even though it's fine to consume.
  • Optionally, brush the patties with BBQ sauce and grill the pineapple rings. I find grilled pineapple rings to be prone to falling apart unless cooked on a griddle, so I usually skip grilling them.
  • Remove the patties and let rest for 5 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, toast your buns if desired.
  • Assemble the burgers by brushing BBQ sauce on the inside of the buns.
  • Top the bottom bun with the ham, followed by the lettuce and pineapple.
  • Add the pork burger and serve.
