Canadian Barn BBQ Sauce

Rating: 4.5 stars 116
This flavorful barbeque sauce for ribs is just like the kind they serve at a famous restaurant in Montreal, Quebec that has people lining up on the street any given night of the week. Try this u002du002d you'll luv it! Don't' skip the lemon juice or cinnamon. Simmer the left over sauce until sugar is completely dissolved and serve as extra sauce for those who like their ribs dripping with flavor.

Mom's Legendary Stuffed Hamburgers

Rating: 4.5 stars 32
These are enormous, stick-to-your-ribs kind of burgers with a surprise in the center. A real family favorite. I like to serve them on a bun topped with sauteed mushrooms and Swiss cheese. Use extra lean or lean ground beef instead of medium because the bacon adds to the fat content of the meat.
