FRANKLIN, Tenn. – Carl’s Jr. and Hardee’s announced their latest QSR creation: the Baby Back Rib Burger.
Available at participating locations nationwide starting on April 26, the Baby Back Rib Burger features real, boneless, baby back ribs that are charbroiled and dipped in sweet and smoky Cattleman’s Original BBQ Sauce. The ribs are then stacked on charbroiled beef patties, topped with crispy onion strings and pickles, and served on a premium, brioche-style bun.
The Baby Back Rib Burger uses ribs officially and exclusively supplied by Bubba’s-Q Boneless Ribs, an Ohio-based BBQ restaurant and online store owned and operated by former Detroit Lions’ football star Al “Bubba” Baker.
The company drew national attention after appearing on a 2013 episode of ABC’s hit television program “Shark Tank,” when “Shark” Daymond John made a deal with Bubba to invest in the brand.
