In a large skillet over medium heat, warm the olive oil. Season both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper. Add pork chops to the skillet in a single layer and cook until golden on both sides, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
Meanwhile, make the “Crack Sauce”: In a medium bowl, whisk together barbecue sauce, brown sugar, lime juice and garlic powder.
When the pork chops are golden, add the” Crack Sauce” to the pan. Bring sauce to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover the skillet with a tight-fitting lid and simmer until the pork is cooked through, about 4 to 5 minutes more.
In a very large bowl combine beef, blue cheese, onion, pineapple, ham, bacon pieces, pepper, and garlic powder; mix well. Shape meat mixture into eight 1-inch-thick patties.
For a charcoal grill, place patties on the grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill, covered, for 12 to 14 minutes or until done (160 degrees F to 165 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling.
Top burgers with cheddar cheese. Continue to grill, covered, for 2 minutes more or until cheese is melted. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place patties on grill rack over heat. Cover; grill as directed.)
Serve burgers on buns. If desired, top with lettuce, tomato, and onion.
