Tailgates and barbecues can seem like a keto paradise — after all, where there's meat on a grill, there's bound to be something you can eat. But like store-bought salad dressings, barbecue sauce can be loaded with unwanted sugar, a problem for the low-carb plan. Before serving up ribs or pulled pork or whatever is on the menu for your next gathering, make your own keto-friendly barbecue sauce. This recipe is sweet, smoky, acidic, and a little spicy — and so authentically barbecue that no one will notice you've swapped out the marinade. It pairs well with everything from brisket to grilled chicken.
