Homemade BBQ Sauce

This sauce is usually made with a base of a tomato product, vinegar, liquid smoke, spices, salt, pepper, and sweeteners. Commercially prepared barbeque sauce is loaded with salt and sugar. If you have had gastric bypass or sleeve surgery, the sugar in the sauce may cause dumping syndrome. Make your own sauce so you can control the amount of sugar and salt, plus it’s less expensive to make your own. Click here for the recipe.
