Wait, you're serious?

Yeah Apparently I'm quite carb sensitive - I didn't start leaning out until I went no-carb paleo. When I eat anything sugary it's like someone slipped me a cup of nyquil - the lights go out and it's bedtime.

My coach is the same way - a slice of chocolate cake brings on dizzy spells and extreme sleepiness. Even the sugars in wine knock me out.

Now I eat mustard with my meats instead of ketchup. I have 5 different types of mustard in my fridge.

I've learned to 'buffer' my sugar intake by filling up on meat & fat first in an attempt to slow down the crash from dessert.

But that's enough threadjacking...good BBQ pork doesn't need any sauce, it's like candy on its own!

Yeah, some sauces are honey based and some are sugar based.
Depending on the way the owner of the pit likes it, you may even get sauce that's no sugar at all.

Vinegar based sauces are easy on the Paleo people, but hard to find in Tejas.

I'd just eat and enjoy.

Re: Is all BBQ cheating?

Salt Lick uses a sweet sauce. I'd say that it is heavy. Not that this would stop me from eating pounds of Salt Lick brisket, I'd just use the sauce sparingly and skip the potato salad and coleslaw.

Also, for those living in Austin that want to go lighter on the BBQ. Rudy's BBQ serves a very nice turkey breast.

I also tried House Park BBQ recently. It made Vanity Fair's top ten BBQ joints in the country (if you want to take Vanity Fair as the final arbitrator on fine BBQ). Still it has good authentic BBQ right in downtown.

Lamberts has excellent upscale BBQ.

Re: Is all BBQ cheating?

I dug out my container of Salt Lick Dry Rub.

Ingredients: A blend of salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper & spices.

per teaspoon serving: 5 cal, 0g fat, 700mg sodium, 1 g carb, 0 g sugars, 0 g protein

Salt Lick Original Recipe BBQ sauce

Ingredients include soybean oil, cane sugar, distilled vinegar, prepared mustard, Worcestershire sauce, salt, spices, xanthan gum

per 2 Tbsp serving: 160 cal, 15g fat, 270 mg sodium, 5 g carb, 5 g sugars, 0 g protein

definitely not Paleo, but then even if one were strict it would be impossible to reach metaphysical Paleo purity. Might as well enjoy sparingly and call it a "little cheat". Or just try to avoid the sauce.
