Please be careful with artifical sweetners if you add heat to aspartame it will get a very bitter taste. To my knowledge splenda is the only one that has proven good for the heat not all diet drinks have changed so be careful with reading labeels

BBQ sauce is one of the hardest things to find for diabetics i have searched and searched for months.. Thank you for posting this. Also, I found some really good sugar free and low carb bbq sauce at a store in my area by using google and searching for low carb store "your city name".. my store is called low carb nation. You might have one of these types of stores in your area.. just give a search for it :))

You can add a few spices if you want but it is pretty good just like it is stated. I've used this recipe many times. I like it with Diet Dr. Pepper and Ketch-up. The only thing I do different is I put the soda and ketch-up in a sauce pan and simmer it until it thickens a bit. It is easier to baste the meats with. But if you want to use it as a marinade don't cook it, just place it in a re-sealable bag and place the meat in with it. Close the bag and place it in a pan(in case of drips) and marinade it for 1-24 hours. Depending on how strong you want the marinade. You can use this for just about any kind of meat, but it is really good with pork and chicken. I do like to take a large chuck steak or roast and marinade this for 6-24 hours and then place it on a grill with medium high heat. I also place the marinade into a sauce pan and bring it to a boil and boil it until it thickens and use it to baste the meat during the last few minutes on the grill.
Your cooking times vary depending on how you like your meat. Use a meat themometer to assure the correct doneness.
