SWEET & TANGY PALEO BBQ SAUCE
We are now more than halfway through summer, one of the hottest and most humid I’ve experienced in Virginia. Unfortunately, we have not been grilling as much as I would like due to the heat. This weekend however we got some relief and the temperatures fell into the high 70’s with low humidity and a beautiful breeze. So we BBQ’d some wings and instead of the big name bottle BBQ sauces with lots of artificial flavors and colors, I used my homemade Sweet & Tangy Paleo BBQ Sauce.
This particular BBQ sauce was used in a previous post for my Pulled BBQ Pork Sliders. You can find the recipe for those lovelies here or by clicking on the picture below. This weekend, we decided to stick with BBQ wings. My husband isn’t a big cook but he does enjoy grilling. They are super easy to make and inexpensive. Who doesn’t love cheap and easy?
For extra crispy wings, thoroughly dry your wings and toss them in a little bit of arrowroot powder and place on a rack in your refrigerator for at least an hour. This method is especially helpful for grilled or baked wings where you might not get the extra crisp like you would from frying. For a full recipe of my Paleo BBQ Wings, click here.
This Sweet & Tangy Paleo BBQ Sauce is so versatile that you can use on the following dishes to name a few:
- Whole Grilled or Crockpot Chicken
- Pulled Pork or Chicken BBQ
- Grilled or Baked Turkey Legs
- Crockpot Beef, Chicken, Turkey or Pork Meatballs
- Pork Chops
- Pork Loins
- Whole Crockpot Pork Tenderloin
- Cauliflower Crust BBQ Pizza
- Grilled Vegetables
I would love to hear your ideas on different types of dishes that you make with BBQ and paleo variations of sauces. Next time, I might get a little crazy and marinate a rib-eye steak in the sauce before grilling. Nothing like a nice sweet char on a juicy steak. Hope you all are enjoying your summer! Thank you for stopping by!
