Low Carb BBQ Sauce
Most store bought BBQ sauces are not keto approved. Many are loaded with sugar, high fructose corn syrup and carbohydrates. Even many homemade barbeque sauce recipes call for brown sugar, white sugar, maple syrup, honey or even coca cola. This is an easy recipe for low carb BBQ sauce that you can make in less than 10 minutes.
This BBQ sauce is tangy and sweet. It is vinegar based so it carries a little bite to it. My family loves this sauce smothered over ribs and slathered on steak and chicken. I use this sauce to drench my Sugar Free Pulled Pork. I even use it as the pizza sauce for my Keto BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza recipe.
Homemade Keto BBQ Sauce Variations
You can adapt this basic barbeque sauce recipe to these different versions:
- Smoky - add a small amount of liquid smoke

- Maple - substitute ¼ cup sugar free maple syrup
for the golden monk fruit
Keto Approved Store Bought BBQ Sauce
There are a couple of store bought BBQ sauces that are keto approved. The ones I really love are from Lillie’s Q and Primal Kitchen. Primal Kitchen has a couple different BBQ sauces - a classic and a golden. The golden BBQ sauce is spicy while the classic tastes like traditional barbeque sauce.
Storing Homemade Low Carb BBQ Sauce
Store any leftover keto BBQ sauce in a tightly sealed container in the refrigerator. The sauce should stay fresh in the refrigerator for up to a week.
