The Big Mac is one of those things that is synonymous with America. Normally babies first words are “Big Mac and a Coke, please”. There is just something about the combination of 2 all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, onion, pickles on a sesame seed bun that hypnotizes the senses. I can’t think of any other burger that has captivated society as much as this one has.
How to make Big Mac Sauce
On the very first episode of Hungry Doug, we take a look at the Big Mac, where we make our own and show you how to make the sauce that can go on pretty much anything.

Here we have a copycat recipe for Big Mac Sauce. Put this on your Burgers, Sandwiches, dip your fries in it. It contains healing properties (so they say)
Here in Utah, we aren’t known for much more than green Jell-O, funeral potatoes and polygamy. But there is a new kid in town. R&R BBQ has come in like a wrecking ball and re-ignited the food revolution on the Wasatch Front. Come check out the Best BBQ Joint in Utah, R&R BBQ.
Best BBQ in Utah
Founded by Rod and Roger Livingston as a hobby, they entered into competition BBQ and haven’t looked back. After winning several BBQ championships, they decided to open up their own restaurants. In a few short years, they have opened 7 restaurants and continue their rise to the top. Their whole philosophy has been “No Shortcuts.” From the quality of their meats to the preparation and execution of each plate, that philosophy is apparent.
Before you even see the restaurant coming up, you can definitely smell it. The mouthwatering smell of smoked meats surrounds each store and makes you crave it even more. Entering each location is an adventure in and of itself.
Staples in the arsenal for any BBQ joint is the Brisket, Pulled Pork, and Smoked Sausages. But their most famous dish would have to be their Caveman Burger.
The Caveman Burger
Filled with smoked sausage, pulled pork, jack cheese, fried jalapeños, and topped with your choice of BBQ sauce, you will have to unhinge your jaw like a python to fit it in your mouth. Bursting with smokey goodness, it is BBQ perfection.
If you aren’t in the mood for a delicious burger, you can order the meats by the pound. Each item on their menu is heaven on a plate. Pulled pork, beef brisket, smoked sausage, boneless chicken thighs, smoked chicken, and St. Louis Spare Ribs. My personal preference is the 3 meat plate with Brisket, Sausage, and pulled chicken. You also cannot go wrong with their Brisket Tacos and Nachos.
So if you are in the mood for some great food, good smells, and a friendly atmosphere, go check out R&R BBQ. Find the nearest one on their website and check out their menu.
One of the staples to any BBQ is the Coleslaw. If you want to take that to the next level, come check out this recipe for a Kickin’ Jalapeño Coleslaw that is sure to please. This recipe has all the bases covered: Sweet, Spicy, Tangy, and Freaking Delicious.
Anyone who knows me knows that I absolutely love anything Spicy. I don’t know what it is if I consider it a challenge, of I love the pain associated with eating. I recently had the opportunity to fly out to Texas to visit my brother and also go on a cruise to Mexico. (Check out that video and post here) While there, he said he had bought something awesome that we should do a video on. The Toe of Satan.
We are both fans of the website Vat19 and had seen this challenge done many times before, so I was understandably a little nervous. The uncontrollable drooling, the pain in their faces, it looked AWESOME.
What is the Toe of Satan?
The Toe of Satan is a lollipop that is cinnamon flavored and made with a chili extract that has a Scoville rating of 9 million, which is 900 times hotter than a jalapeño. The chili extract is made from the Carolina Reaper pepper, which is currently the Worlds Hottest Pepper. Here is a description from their Amazon listing.
EXTREMELY SPICY: This satanic sucker is made from a special “hellfire” chili extract that has a Scoville heat unit rating of 9 million—that’s 900 times hotter than a jalapeño and hotter than the hottest pepper on the planet! So be careful: this is a food for serious spice gladiators only.
DO YOU DARE?: If you’re hell-bent on heat, try the Toe of Satan Challenge: keep the sucker in your mouth for five merciless minutes. It’s guaranteed to turn your mouth into a lake of fire.
MADE FROM WORLD RECORD CAROLINA REAPERS: The Toe of Satan is one of the spiciest candies on Earth or in hell. Instead of the delayed burn from hot peppers, this demonic delight sizzles as soon as it hits your tongue. That burn you feel is the “hellfire” chili extract, which has the insanely high Scoville rating of 9 million units! For comparison, that’s over four times hotter than a Carolina Reaper, the former record-holder for the world’s hottest pepper.
BRAGGING RIGHTS WITH YOUR FRIENDS: If you can’t get enough brimstone in your diet, challenge yourself and a friend to the Toe of Satan challenge. In order to achieve bragging rights, you must keep the sucker in your mouth for five fiery minutes without spitting. Trust us, five minutes is going to seem like an eternity.
APPROACH WITH CAUTION: We sincerely mean it when we say that you should approach this sucker with caution. Keep it away from children and pets, and make sure you have milk or ice cream handy before venturing into the netherworld.
Can we handle the Toe of Satan?
The results were that it hurt. A lot. My brother could only do about 20 seconds, while I toughed it out for 2.5 minutes. Maybe one day I will make it all the way through. Check out our video to see the whole thing.
Lime Cilantro and Jalapeños. How can that be bad at all! This stuff is pure gold. It is a spicy and fresh sauce to put on any sandwich, salad, eggroll, jalapeño poppers, tacos, burritos, rice, beans, ice cream, brownies, or whatever your heart desires. (Don’t really put it on your ice cream or brownie, that’s weird. I know some of you will.)
It is super simple to make and can store in the refrigerator for several months.
