BBQ Sauce:

This sauce is intended to be served at the table, southern style, not used to baste the meat. I suppose you could baste the meat with it, but since there s not much sugar in it, you won t get the burnt sugar flavour that people like. Plus, you won t be able to count how many carbohydrates you are consuming because you won t know how much ends up on the coals.

62 grams in the whole batch. 0.9 grams per tablespoon and well worth it.
