Paleo BBQ sauce is impossible to find in stores.
Has anybody tried making their own?
I know BBQ Sauce recipes often come with an "I could tell you, but then I'd have to kill you" clause, but would anybody mind sharing their experience?
I just made this last night, actually:
The link to the sauce recipe is in the post. And believe me, it's awesome.
I LOVE this recipe from Son of Grok.
I've made it a few times, and it's just so delicious. It's zesty, not sweet, but I preferred zesty BBQ even before Paleo.
Yes there is! I have made many variations, but from what I can gather, the following ingredients are "staples" in my BBQ Sauce:
I have also added mustard powder and other herbs such as oregano, basil, etc. depending on what kind of taste I am going for.. I hope this helps!
I've posted this elsewhere for similar questions, but my recipe is basically:

I don't know how "paleo" it is, since it includes both Worcestershire sauce and liquid smoke, but both could easily be eliminated, although you'd sacrifice some of the "smokey" flavor.
Glad you liked the recipe! I promised to let you know if I tried a new, more traditional-tasting recipe, and I did: http://paleograd.blogspot.com/2011/03/new-bbq-sauce-recipe.html. It has a bit of dextrose in it, but it's pretty awesome (it's entirely possible that it would taste just as good without the sweetness, but I really was trying to capture the taste of our pre-paleo BBQ favorite).
Bring on the brisket.

Ray Audette's NeanderThin was published back in 1999 and is out-of-print. I've now put four of his recipes on the web. For more, the book is available on the used market.
Try leaving a cup of chopped dates soaking in 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar over night in the fridge. In the morning add 1/4 c water and a can or two of tomato paste. Add seasonings of your choice, but I would recommend onion and garlic. Apple cider soaked dates are usually my wine replacement when it comes to cooking.
