Not sure I would use ground pork in a blend, unless you plan on cooking them to well done. But a little fat back in the mix would be fine. What blend of meat cuts are you wanting to use? I use a mix of chuck as the main base and add a little short rib and top round to the mix. It's About a 2 1/2/1/1 ratio. If I added fat back, I'd probably go 1/2 of the amount of the 1 in the ratio. So say 2.5 lbs of chuck, to 1.3 lbs of short rib, and 1 lb of top round...I would add in about 1/2 lb of fat back and start from there.

Ground Pork is great added to ground beef for a burger.

Ground Pork is great added to ground beef for a burger.
75% beef, 25 % pork.
Mix well with your favorite rub and let the Gods of Fire do their thing.
