      1. In a mixing bowl, place your ground pork, maple syrup, smoked paprika, salt and pepper, and combine throughly. Make 2 8ounce patties from the mixture. PREP GRILL. Place them on the grill, high heat for a good sear. Turn down the heat to medium and leave on the grill for 6-8 minutes. Place two pieces of american cheddar on each patty.
      2. On the other side of the grill, place peameal bacon and lightly brush with maple syrup. Cook for 4-6min on medium low.
      3. Make sure to have your buns slightly toasted on the top rack of your BBQ!
      4. Once the cheese is melted on each of the patties, stack the first patty on the bun, add a slice of peameal, add the second patty and peameal slice, and top it off with a pickle. If you feel so inclined, finish this Canadian inspired burger off with a fried egg!
