Keto Spicy BBQ Sauce Recipe!

As a Texan, the weekend BBQ is a big part of my life.  There is just nothing like firing up the grill on a Saturday afternoon and throwing a big ole slab of meat on the fire and letting it cook in a primal way how our ancestors did.  Ok, they probably didn’t have propane but still, fire is awesome.

For this recipe, I wanted something a little on the spicy side but you can make it a little sweeter just by cutting the Tabasco and Cayenne and adding a small amount of sweetener.  I just wanted something a little bolder than the BBQ sauces I used to pick up from the grocery store because sweet foods just don’t have the same appeal to me as they used to.

I’ve used this recipe on several kinds of meat but by far the best is chicken.  Just grill the chicken as normal and when you’ve got about 5-10 minutes left before the chicken is completely done, brush on the sauce then close the lid to allow it to caramelize a bit.  It’s incredibly tasty.  I will also use it as a dipping sauce, usually when I make hamburger patties.

It’s very tasty and very versatile.  If you make this for yourself, please let me know!  Just tag @MySugarFreeJrny on Instagram and I’ll see it.  You can also subscribe to the YouTube channel to never miss a video and see the rest of my recipes here.  Thanks!

  1. Wondering if the salt amount is correct or if it’s supposed to be 2 tsp – just made this recipe as written, and it is beyond edible salty. I tried to balance it out with twice the amount of water and 6 Tbsp of Swerve, but it’s still way too salty. The rest of the flavors seem to be there, which is why I’m wondering if it’s a typo.

    1. Ugh, you are exactly right. I am so sorry. The crazy thing is that I have made this recipe about a dozen times over the last few years and never even noticed that. I fixed it and thank you so much for bringing it to my attention.

      1. Happy to help, thank you for creating an easy, keto-friendly bbq sauce recipe – we’ve been having a hankering lately and now we can indulge!

  2. I input the ingredients into a recipe app that gives the nutritional info on a recipe and for this recipe it says there are 4.9g total carbs, 1.5g fiber, 2.4g sugar. This is based off of there being 10 servings.

  3. WOW! love this BBQ sauce, This was the first time I made any BBQ sauce. I didn’t have tomato paste so i sub it out for rotel and boiled it down to a paste. Other than that followed it… Got to say that i was very impressed. Better than any store bought sauce. We used it on Hamburgers. I’m going to look at other recipes from you thanks for sharing.
