Store bought condiments are always high in sodium to help preserve the shelf life of the product. Achieving that same great taste with very little sodium is easy and painless! This low sodium bbq sauce recipe only takes about an hour to make, and doesn't involve much skill at all. Like all of the recipes on here, to achieve the best results I highly recommend buying whole spices and grinding them yourself. You can find a guide to help you with that here.
