Keto Spicy BBQ Sauce Recipe!

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!
