sigh, why do HEWMONS complicate everything?

my bbq sauce consists of TWO ingredients: Walden Farms bbq sauce and chinese mustard...ratios ad lib to taste. Of course I can add stuff, but never felt the need. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

Made your SMOKY BBQ SAUCE II LindaSue. I did however after making want it to have a bit of more of a kick so I added 3/4 tablespoon hot sauce a dash of cayenne pepper, and threw in after it was all simmered 2 tbl butter. (not sure if the butter added anything but it was just an addition)

Wow! I think that this may be what I have been looking for. I made BBQ chicken on the grill with the other sauce and thought it was missing something.

Linda, I just want to thank you for sharing this. I used it on chicken on our camping trip. I made it up ahead of time. It certainly improved in flavor after letting it blend. It was wonderful! My whole family loved it and asked for it again. I am still eating the leftovers.

Thanks for the nice review, Tilly. I'm going to make a batch later today, if I have time, and see what a little butter does for it.

I made a batch of my BBQ sauce and added 2 tablespoons of butter to it. I'm not sure if I can detect any difference because of the butter but I will try it again later after it has chilled for a while. At that time I will compare it with the previous batch. I've still got a little of that one left.

Please let us know what you discover. Didn't think it needed improving!

I really don't see any difference in the consistency with the butter added. I also think that adding butter might affect how long it will keep. I won't bother adding butter again.

I'm not positive about this but for some reason my older batch tastes slightly better than the new batch. Besides the butter the only other thing that was different was the vinegar. I used cider vinegar in the new batch (which is what the recipe calls for) but last time I accidentally used white vinegar which has a more neutral flavor. It's hard to say if that is what is making the difference in the flavor or if it's just because the older batch has had a chance to age in the fridge for a couple weeks. The color of the older batch is much darker too so I think that aging might have something to do with it. Next time I'll use white vinegar again and see what happens.

I just moved to Texas, and we found out that my husband is borderline diabetic and so we decided to do low carb no sugar. We have a bbq chain around San Antonio called Rudy's. They have a fantastic bbq sauce and I made a lower carb version of it...it tastes darn good!

1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
1 cup LC ketchup
1/2 cup splenda
1 tsp black strap molasses
2 1/2 tbsp white vinegar
2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup lemon juice (2 lemons)
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp coarse black pepper
1/4 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper


Combine all ingredients in a large pot. Simmer until slightly reduced.

It was FANTASTIC! I had the real sauce in my fridge, and they tasted quite similar, even my nieces who don't low carb thought it was almost exact and liked it.

I have always been favorable to mine - which I developed out of KC BBQ sauce recipe. You can do without the molasses if you choose.

I finally made LS Smoky BBQ Sauce II, except I used 1-15oz can tomato sauce instead of 6oz of tomato paste. I thickened it up after simmering w/2 tsp of glucomannan powder and it turned into the same consistency of regular bbq sauce. I was out of liquid splenda so I used about 1/3 cup Diabetesweet brown sugar and no black strap molases. It was delicious. It made 1 mason jar, and 1 huge bottle of sauce, it was probably at least 4 cups worth. This is what I will be making from now on.

But I use erythritol and a bit of liquid splenda for sweetening, and I do it by taste rather than the measurements the original recipe lists.

And, hey, I miss you on the dinner menu threads!
Just have to say, this is my favorite sauce, too. I've made some tweaks to it so it tastes just like Heinz 57 Sauce. If I were using it for barbequing ribs or something though, I'd use the original recipe. Since I'm JUDDDING now, the sauce is still perfect as it is low carb and low calorie!

Hollyinpugland, I find that they normally list the honey as Sugar Free or Imitation. This is my BBQ, it's easy and we love it. You can sub powdered garlic for the cloves making it even easier.

It's very simple...

Mindy's Easy Honey BBQ Sauce

1 c. LC ketchup
1/3 c. SF honey
1/4 c. soy sauce
2 cloves minced garlic

Whisk together and tah-dah! Yummy BBQ sauce. It makes a lot, but it keeps well in the fridge in an air tight container for up to a month.

I am glad this thread has been revived--we love our barbecue here in the South and I am always up for more suggestions! Here's our tried-and-true version:

Diana’s Barbecue Sauce
This is a low-carbed tweaked version my mother’s barbecue sauce, from the 1950’s. I discovered how good the addition of the bacon is on this forum.
Ingredients:
• 2 strips of bacon, cut into small pieces
• ¼ medium onion, finely chopped
• 1 cup no sugar ketchup
• ¼ cup vinegar-- I use cider vinegar here, but some prefer white distilled vinegar
• ¼ cup sugar replacer (I use a combo of xylitol or Ideal, tagatose, and a few drops of liquid splenda)*
• 1 tbs yellow prepared mustard
• 1 tsp blackstrap molasses
• 1 tbs dried onion flakes
• ½ tsp cinnamon
• ½ tsp garlic powder
• 1 tsp salt or to taste
Directions:
Sauté the little pieces of bacon until the fat is rendered and the bacon is crisp. Then sauté the chopped onion in the bacon fat until it is transparent and slightly caramelized. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Thin with water if necessary to prevent burning if cooking on the stovetop.

I usually put this all together in a Corningware container that can go on the stovetop (for the bacon and onion browning), then into the microwave for simmering. Cover it partially if you do it in the microwave to keep it from spattering, but still allow it to reduce.

Stir well and adjust seasoning to taste. Linda Su adds ½ tsp celery seed to hers, so I am going to try that next.
This keeps beautifully in the fridge for several weeks.

*Note: the tagatose in this recipe will help with the browning of the meat on the grill or in the oven. Watch it closely, though if grilling or broiling, as it burns easily. Without tagatose, the sauce will almost never get that crispy, dark, grilled barbecue crust. An alternative in that situation would be to grill the meat first to form the crust, then add the barbecue sauce at the end. It also works well to use a little sugar-free honey as part of the sweetener. I keep a jar of that made up from Birgit Kerr’s recipe, which can be found on her website, or you can just use what you can buy in the grocery store.

I leave out the green peppers to suit my kids tastes and use low sugar ketchup.

Sloppy joes

1 pound lean ground beef
3/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup chopped onion
salt an pepper to taste
1/4 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard

Directions

1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, brown the ground beef, onion, and green pepper; drain off liquids.

2. Stir in the garlic powder, mustard, ketchup and mix thoroughly. Reduce heat, and simmer for 30 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Thanks!
The sloppy joes that I make have more of a sweet and sour flavored sauce and no smoke flavor.



MY FAVORITE SLOPPY JOES
1 pound ground chuck
1 small onion, chopped (2 1/2 ounces)
1 clove garlic, minced
8 ounce can tomato sauce
1/4 cup granular Splenda or equivalent liquid Splenda
1/2 teaspoon blackstrap molasses, optional
2 tablespoon vinegar
1 teaspoon mustard
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum, optional

Brown the ground chuck along with the onion and garlic; drain the fat. Add the remaining ingredients, except the xanthan gum. Cover and simmer 30 minutes. If the sauce is too thin, thicken it with a little xanthan gum. Serve on low carb buns or over chopped lettuce (not included in counts).

Makes about 6 servings

TIP: An easy way to add the xanthan gum is to stir it into the ground beef after you've drained the grease and before you add the remaining ingredients.

With granular Splenda:

With liquid Splenda:
Per Serving: 147 Calories; 8g Fat; 13g Protein; 4g Carbohydrate; 1g Dietary Fiber; 3g Net Carbs

Thanks Gina and LindaSue!

I was hoping for one like LindaSue's that starts with either tomato sauce or paste. Buying LS ketchup is kinda pricey for me, and I didn't want the ectra step of making my own.

Thanks girls!

I don't. It's pretty similar to Linda Sue's. I just use some Diabetisweet Brown Sugar Sub in mine instead of Blackstrap Molases.
