Tips & Tricks

Recipe tweaking

Everyone seems to have a different preference when it comes to BBQ sauce. If you think this recipe would benefit from a bit of tweaking, feel free to add (or remove) ingredients to your liking. Some find that adding mustard, chili powder, and paprika brings out the best of flavors. If you want to lower the sauce’s carb content, replace the Worcestershire sauce with coconut aminos. Keep in mind that this will result in a milder-tasting sauce.
