Coffee Rubbed Burgers with Dr Pepper BBQ Sauce

Coffee-rubbed meat? Could that be good? Well let us tell you, it most definitely is. The coffee rub does something to the beef, makes it… peppier. Then the addition of things like Dr Pepper BBQ sauce, brown sugar-infused this and that, crispy bacon, apple cider vinegar, etc. makes this one sinfully good burger.
