My Bacon Cheddar Ranch Burgers

I made up this recipe one night on a whim, and boy were they good!! We didn't have any buns so we just ate them on toasted bread! (Didn't matter, they were awesome!) I used Sweet Baby Rays's BBQ Sauce. Not all bbq sauces blend well with this, so try and use a thick, sweet sauce versus a thin, hot Texas-style sauce.
