I think you all missed the concept. People like me are alowed a few carbs per meal. Therefore no substitute that I have found is ever going to take the place of good Q. One must just moderate the amount of the good things and still enjoy what we have. I have been working for the last year to produce a "Low Carb--Low Sugar" BBQ Sauce that has a competition flavor. So far No Luck. I am still too high in carbs. I even went exotic and tried to use the Mexican ,Agave plant sweetner which is low in sugar and carbs but does not exactly work well with the other ingredients. I don't give up very easily--.
I do enjoy my BBQ sauces but I have to rember the 2 Tablespoon limit for the carbs.
Just rember 2 tablespoons of the good stuff ---is better than none at all.
Go Low Carb but don't give up the things you love--everything is moderation.
