    What brand of hickory smoke spice do you recommend, and where can I buy it?

    How long does this stay good?

  3. Ken says:

    And if you want it a little thicker, use applesauce instead of apple juice.

    This bbq sauce recipe was delicious! I added a tsp of Dijon mustard; enjoyed it immensely! Thank you!

    Is apple juice paleo?

    • Roy says:

      Store bought apple juice, which typically has added sugar, is not. Since it’s natural apple juice and only being included as a minor ingredient, I’m sure it is fine.
