| I am often asked what my favorite BBQ sauce is. I'm asked just as often where people can find MY BBQ sauce recipe. To be perfectly frank, I'm occasionally lazy and have slipped completely into the habit of purchasing BBQ sauce, having never attempted to crack the sugar-free BBQ code, myself. Having MADE lots of BBQ Sauces in my past, it's not something that I'm new to; I just haven't ever tried to remove all the sugar from it.|
To my mind, a good BBQ sauce has some spice to it, a bit of smokiness, definitely some sweet, but above all, it should have TANG! There should almost be pain coming from the inhalation of its vapor. I LOVE a VERY strong and vinegary BBQ sauce.
The following recipe is somewhat toned down from what I would personally make (if you want to get closer to my personal preference, double the vinegar), but this recipe is by no means lacking in flavor. It's everything a good BBQ sauce should be, but without the unnecessary carbs!
All I can say is, don't knock it till you've tried it!
Note: Makes about 2 cups of sauce. Recipe is calculated for 16 two-tablespoon servings.
