Whole30 BBQ Sauce

I meant to get a photo of it with our ribs, but they vanished too quickly

use as a dip, or a basting sauce

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.

it was pretty tangy but if you like it hotter, just add more hot sauce

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.

  1. The sauce does sound amazing. One thing that works for flies and mosquitoes is a fan! They don’t like flying into the breeze and will avoid the area.
