If you’re looking for a great versatile BBQ sauce that’s perfect for helping you enjoy the last grilling weekends of summer and fall, this is it! The addition of the cloves and cinnamon are what really make this BBQ sauce special so don’t skip those two spices. We use it on pulled pork, ribs, and wings. Be sure to make plenty for a dipping sauce for the table. Our non low carb family members and friends always ask for the recipe and that’s high praise!
