Carl's Jr. and Hardee's have launched the Memphis BBQ Burger. The heavy burger includes two kids of meat. It combines saucy pulled pork with a charbroiled beef patty. The Memphis BBQ Burger also includes crispy onion strings, American cheese and Memphis-style BBQ sauce on a sesame seed bun. It costs $3.79.

Brad Haley, chief marketing officer for restaurant chains, says, "Jay Leno first joked that we were using 'meat as a condiment for other meat' in a 2006 monologue on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to describe Carl's Jr. Pastrami Burger. Since then, we’ve introduced several meat-on-meat burgers, including the Philly Cheesesteak Burger, the Prime Rib Burger, and the French Dip Thickburger at Hardee's and/or Carl's Jr. Following in those delicious footsteps, young, hungry guys and gals will surely love the new Memphis BBQ Burger just as much."
