Great idea jhb! Still get lots of flavor by adding the sugar free jelly but less carbs, cals than doing all BBQ sauce ~ clever! And different sugar free jellies will give different flavor combos! I am thinking a sugar free apricot or peach jelly might add a nice flavor note to the BBQ sauce! What kind of sugar free jelly did you choose?

Salsa are another way to add flavor after the meat is cooked and can add flavor in place of using the BBQ sauce - most tend to be low in carb and there is a huge variety of flavors and spice level! It's not BBQ but still may add lots of flavor!

The recipe I have actually calls for 1 part BBQ sauce mixed with 1 part sugar free jelly, so I think that will help me cut back on the carbs and calories since the jelly has only 5 gm carbs and 10 calories per tablespoon.

Hi NYRunner and jhb - the Wegman's BBQ sauce great - and nice that it is vegan and gluten free!

If you are ambitious and want to make your own low carb BBQ check out the recipe at this link: http://bit.ly/TZHoeE
To make it vegan leave out the bacon and add liquid smoke as per the note at the bottom of the recipe; you will also want to leave out the Worcestshire sauce (not vegan). I believe most of the ingredients are gluten-free. It does call for diet soda (preferably with Splenda) so consider that if you prefer not to include sugar substitutes in your diet. This recipe has 3.5 g carb in 1/4 cup! Wow! If you make it, let us know what you think!

Hello jhb

To keep things local I found that Wegmans Brown Sugar Barbeque sauce is Gluten free, lactose free, and vegan. It contains 17grams of carbohydrate in 2 tablespoons, so watching your portion could make this food fit in your diet. great question!

Barbecue sauces seem to be so high in sugar. Does anyone have any recommendations for lower sugar ones? Also, are there any barbecue sauces that are vegan? Any that are both vegan and gluten free?
