This Low Carb Barbecue Glaze is one sweet, spicy, delicious concoction that’s perfect for brushing on before or during grilling.
It flavorful enough to lend a barbecue effect to air fryer chicken wings; which is why I converted it. But when tasting it, my head griller 😉 insisted that he was going to brush it on the next batch of hamburgers. Good plan!!
This Low Carb Barbecue Glaze has a thinner texture and less tomato flavor than most barbecue sauces I’ve tried.
This includes my regular Southern Barbecue Sauce. We still love that one but the flavor of this glaze is even more intense and it can be applied more often during grilling so less is really more here.
I converted this glaze from one called Easy BBQ Glaze by Martha Stewart. Only a few simple changes were needed but they took it into low carb territory while retaining all the brightness, sweetness and tanginess!!

You will need a really exceptionally good sugar free ketchup to make this sauce taste great. Here is an affiliate link to my very favorite sugar free ketchup. I’m afraid that it’s expensive in general but especially from Amazon. But remember it is a condiment and can be used sparingly. I’m sure it can be found for about 1/2 the price in the natural food section of many stores too. That’s where I get mine.
Primal Kitchen also sells a barbecue sauce but in my opinion it is no where near as good as this one.
- Combine the glaze ingredients in a small bowl. Liberally brush on meat and/or vegetables before and/or during grilling.
- If you make this glaze ahead just store it in a small jar with a tight fitting lid.
