BBQ Sauce

BBQ Sauce

When buying store bought BBQ sauce, it is important to be diligent about reading labels.  Most are loaded with refined oils, sugars, and other additives.  There are Primal-approved ones available, but you will only find them at select stores. (Of course, you could always order some on Amazon).  This recipe is simple to make, less expensive, and pretty darn tasty.  You can add it to pulled pork, cocktail meatballs, or whatever else you like BBQ sauce on.
