The Best Keto Dry Rub- Sweet Heat BBQ

This weekend we were planning on smoking baby back ribs, but finding a Keto bbq sauce is a challenge.

Does sugar free BBQ sauce even exist?

Josh (my husband) ended up making a homemade dry rub for ribs and it was so good we ended up using it to season up some Keto pork chops the next day too.

I’m more of a sweet, Josh is more of a savory and this easy dry rub was the perfect combination.

You’ll also love the BBQ flavor that makes this dry rub seasoning perfect for grilling up some pork chops, chicken or even smoking baby back ribs.

To make a sweet dry rub you usually use brown sugar, but those net carbs can really add up.

Lakanto Golden Monkfruit sweetener tastes just like sugar, has zero net carbs, is a natural occurring sugar alcohol and the perfect substitute for brown sugar

How awesome is it that it also has NO Maltodextrin, NO Artificial flavoring or sweeteners, so you can feel good feeding it to the whole family.

You can use the Golden Monkfruit sweetener for baking, to make sugar free BBQ sauce and homemade dry rubs. 


I have found that most people starting out on Keto don't realize that you should be counting Net Carbs when following a Keto Diet.

So when you look at the nutrition label you subtract Fiber from the Total Carbs and that equals Net Carbs
