Low Carb BBQ Sauce

This is a basic BBQ sauce and anything can be adjusted to suit your tastes.  It tastes pretty good on it’s own but sauces can be so subjective and easy to tweak.

Notes
  1. This is a basic BBQ sauce and anything can be adjusted to suit your tastes. It tastes pretty good on it’s own but sauces can be so subjective and easy to tweak.
  2. If you like really smoky sauce, add another tsp. of liquid smoke.
  3. If you like it sweet add a drop or two of EZ-Sweetz or use low carb ketchup.
  4. Like lots of onion? Add more. Just remember onions have carbs which is why I grate mine. Grating gets you the most flavor, punch and bang for your buck.
  5. Spicier? Add more Cayenne.
  6. More piquant? Add more chili powder.
  7. Like Worcestershire? Add some.
