Hak's Ribs

Serves 2
Is there anything better than fall-off-the bone ribs? If we are talking about Hak's Ribs, then the answer is, NO!

1 slab of baby back ribs
Hak's Rub
2 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoons fresh cracked pepper
2 tablespoons smoked paprika
1 teaspoon chipotle powder
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon mustard powder
1 tablespoon ground thyme
1 tablespoon ground coriander
2 bottles of a dark beer (like Guinness)
1 bottle Hak’s bbq sauce
Preheat your oven to 200. Rub Hak's rub generously over the ribs and then place in a roasting pan. Pour beer in the roasting pan around the ribs. Cover lightly with foil. Place in oven and cook for about 4 hours. Preheat your grill to high. Remove ribs from roasting pan. Pour Hak's BBQ sauce into a bowl and with a brush, apply the sauce generously to the ribs. Place ribs on the grill and allow the sauce to caramelize both sides of the ribs. About 30 seconds each side. Do this several times to give it a nice coat and Enjoy!

Hak's Backyard Burger

Serves 2
This recipe is simple and delivers on every level.

2 pounds of fresh ground beef (not those premade discs you find in the freezer)
8 strips of bacon ( I like a cured applewood smoked center cut)
4 burger buns
4 slices sharp cheddar
3 red onions
1 bottle HAK's bbq sauce
Salt and pepper
Set your oven to 350 and bake the bacon for 20 minutes, until crispy and golden (there is no problem frying them up if you prefer). Slice the red onions into rings and saute with oil until caramelized, about 20 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Preheat your grill to high. Form nine 1/2 pound thick patties and season both sides with salt and pepper. Grill em! Sharone does about 2 minutes each side, twice over for a medium rare. Top with slices of cheese. Toast your buns and assemble. Top the burgers with the bacon and onions, then smother each with a healthy pour of Haks BBQ sauce.
