If anyone out there knows of a good, clean, natural, non-toxic fly repellent, I’d be very glad to hear it.
Hubs and I were BBQ-ing some ribs last weekend and the cloud of flies that showed up was monstrous. Like a biblical plague.
It almost ruined the very, very, very tasty spare ribs that my genius husband artfully cooked until they were falling-off-the-bone delicious.
Of course, I take some of the credit because the BBQ sauce that we slathered on those ribs was my own invention.
There are plenty of paleo/primal BBQ sauce recipes out there…but not so many that are Whole30 compliant.
So I found this one, and tweaked it. Both myself and Hubs (who is not doing the Whole30 and therefore is my benchmark in these things) loved it.
Whole30 BBQ Sauce (makes about 3 cups)
- 6 oz tomato paste
- 3 tbsps ghee, softened
- 3 tbsps hot sauce
- 4 tbsps fresh orange juice
- 6 tbsps apple cider vinegar
- 1/4 cup distilled water
- 2 tsps yellow mustard
- 1/2 tsp allspice
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
- 2 tsps chili powder
- 1 1/2 tsps paprika
- 1/2 tsp garlic salt
- Whisk everything together until well combined. Slather on your meat. Eat (preferably with your fingers for the true primal experience).
