I created this Whole30 Barbecue Sauce for the time I was strictly adhering to the Whole30 eating plan. I had a really hard time finding Whole30 compliant barbecue sauces because everything has added sugar, it seems. This is more of a smoky barbecue sauce, and you know it tastes clean. I ended up liking it enough to keep making it even when not doing the 30-day cleanse/challenge/gut healing/whateveryoucallit. What can I say, once you go clean, you… well, feel amazing and never want to eat that old crap again!
If you would like to make it more Paleo instead of super-strict Whole30, you can add a bit of honey to it to sweeten it. This is what my husband recommends. Pretty delicious!
