KC's Rib Shack: Ever had a burger with Peanut butter as a topping?

A week or so ago the FATGUYFOODBLOG crew hit up KC'S Rib Shack in Manchester, NH.

Why did we go there? Well we found ourselves watching a Phantom Gourmet marathon and during the segment on KC'S, they showed not only its various bbq delicacies but also a few of their more ridiculous menu items- like the burger that has peanut butter on it. Oh, and Maple Bacon ice cream.

Fast forward two hours and we're sitting at a table in the place waiting for our food.

I got the GRACELAND. This is a half pound burger with mayo, onions, bacon and peanut butter. But there was something missing. CHEESE. So I had them throw a slice of cheddar on it and here's what this monstrosity looked like...

It was delicious. Not in that "I'm eating something weird that shouldn't be good but isn't THAT bad so I will say it's really good" way either. It was legitimately good. The actual burger itself was delicious. You knew you were getting a serious burger and not some frozen patty that came off of a truck. It was some delicious lean ground beef, smothered in cheddar cheese and onions with crisp bacon that wasn't so thick that it was hard to eat and not so thin that you feel screwed over after eating it. Top it all off with peanut butter and mayo and somehow it all congealed together into a mouth watering beast of a burger. If I had one complaint it would be that I wish they had grilled the onions. They were slightly distracting from the burger as a whole.
Here's a shot of it all put together...

Then for desert we tried their Maple Bacon Walnut Ice Cream! I am always up for trying off the wall recipes with bacon in them. A couple years ago for Christmas I made Chocolate Chip Cookies with bacon in them and they were delicious. This was no different. They gave you two small scoops in a little tiny bowl...

This was pretty strange. Not bad though. It's not something you'd want to eat a ton of, and you wouldn't want to eat it everyday, but it was a very unique treat. Like most crazy bacon recipes it relied on the Sweet and Salty combination and it worked quite well. I was worried I'd have to deal with maybe some bacon fat blobs in it but that wasn't the case at all. It was sweet, creamy Maple Walnut ice cream with chunks of smoky bacon.  Here's a closer look...

Pretty delicious. I'd absolutely recommend trying it out if you get a chance!

You can find KC's on the net, where they have a website full of weird pictures and flashing stuff.
