Love my smoker! I us any dry rub recipe without the sugar. Or try a product you can buy called better then bullion. Rub it on and frig overnight.
You can make a BBQ sauce using tomato sauce, liquid smoke, splenda brown sugar or white, vinegar, and Tabasco sauce. You'll have to play with it until you find what you like. It's best after a day or two. Keeps well in the frig.
Okay, this might not be really good for you, but all things in moderation and then you don't feel deprived!

Thank God, I met Lisa. My mom died August 10 a couple months ago. Man I was so out of it. I was so sad, we were close. The bad thing was I have been on the road working and traveling to welding job to welding state to state and had not seen my mom for 2 years, then she died without me saying goodbye. My God I felt guily,terrible. Just only 10 days after mom died I met Lisa,(THANK MY GOD ABOVE). She is an RN and has been for almost 20 yrs. She is helping my diabetes,she is such a God send in so many ways. Wow I love her so much.
She makes sure I eat right, and on me all time. God bless her.

Darrell: We live in Auburn,NT~ thatas some distance from Houston! I like the diae, do oyu have an email address? I can send you some of stories I wrote this past year.
God somehow knows our needs, He provides us with those needs before we even speak. Very sory to hear of your mom passinf. My mom died up here in a nursing home over 6 yrd ago. I last saw her 2 weeks before she allowed herself " "denial 0f food and water" ~~ she starved herself to death, the nursing home never called me to tell me. I was not allowed to ride in a car for at least 2 weeks after my muscles were pinned back to my right shoulder, no motion was allowed to let it heal/ So I could not see mom, Linda was busy caring for me duromg the day, she'd go there at nite, but mop ome told her a thing, she had a DNR letter.
She was the last of the aunts on my dads side living. Sad to see a whole generation gone, the Greatest Generation/
Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers,Darrell. God Bless, Grandp[a Bill

I am more worried about the cancer causing potential than I would be about my BG because you can control what you put on food and the food you choose. I would eat this in moderation, not as a regular habit even though you enjoy it.

Smoked food products are particularly dangerous for our health because smoke deposits harmful compounds in them, including carcinogenic ones. Such compounds have been detected in smoked sausage, ham, bacon, and fish as well as in fruits dried with the use of smoke. Harmful substances contained in 1.8oz (50g) of smoked sausage may cause as much damage to our health as one pack of cigarettes or four days worth of breathing polluted city air.
