What timing! I just ordered groceries online from a new delivery service in our area, and accidentally ended up with 15 Pounds of ground round instead of the 3 pounds I planned to order!

I was considering throwing a hellacious cookout, but I'm now thinking of working my way through this list from #1-100...they all sound Terrific!

Thanks for your timely contribution.

Low Carb Barbeque Sauce

1 C apple cider vinegar
1/2 C olive oil
1/2 C unsweetened tomato sauce
1/4 C splenda
1 T prepared mustard
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1-3 t hot sauce
1 t liquid smoke
Mix ingredients in a container with a lid and shake to combine. Store in refrigerator. Shake before use.

(for the hickory effect, I would suggest the hickory flavored liquid smoke instead of regular)

Not to be bossy, but try adding some of this stuff to your LC BBQ sauce:

1-2 t onion juice
1 med cloves garlic, pressed
1/2 t salt
1/2 t black pepper
1 t chile powder
1/4 tsp cumin (if your chile powder doesn't already have it)
scant 1/8 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
pinch cayenne or
pinch chipotle

I make "onion juice" by scraping a butterknife along the cut edge of a white onion. Also, I use tomato paste, instead of tomato sauce.
