Sugar-Free BBQ Sauce Recipe

My husband and I have been working really hard to eat better (read: no added sugar or you know, death) and unfortunately that means finding an alternative to my favorite condiment; BBQ sauce. However when shopping around for a pre-made sugar-free BBQ sauce, they were all made with some stupid artificial sweeteners. Since my husband and I eat all natural and try to avoid man-made junk, these weren't an option for us. So I decided to look around and see if I could find a great recipe that would be a doable alternative. Unfortunately all of the recipes I found included Worcestershire sauce, which has molasses and sugar listed as the second and fourth ingredients so that wasn't an option. Hence (yeah, hence) I was left to my own devices to create my own sugar-free BBQ sauce. I must say, I'm pretty impressed with myself. Not to mention when I found out that I created a sauce that has 2.7 grams of carbs per serving (compared to the average 13 grams of carbs per same serving) I thought I had created something magical. So try it out and tell me what you think!
