    A fabulous idea - except that liquid smoke seasoning has SUGAR in it! Will have to keep looking for a truly sugar free option.  -  14 Jul 2017


    Please note, this is not a tomato based barbecue sauce. this is a sauce representing the South Carolina mustard barbecue sauce. this is a good recipe of a low carb sauce, it will never be a sticky sweet Memphis style sauce or a Kansas city style, both which are based on tomatoes. In the USA there are four distinct style of BBQ. if you would like to know more about this Wikipedia has a good article.  -  25 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We live low carb and this is by far the best low carb sauce recipe that I have run across. My husband just loves it. I often mix it up and throw in some boiled or grilled chicken without even allowing it to sit overnight and it's wonderful. We always keep a jar in the refrigerator. Thanks for a great recipe!  -  05 Jun 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
