Ingredients and Shopping Tips
What kind of Little Smokies Should I Use?
Personally, I think that Hillshire Farms Turkey Lit'l Smokies are just as good in this recipe as any other the other varieties. If you are following weight watchers, the turkey version is also HALF the points! The other varieties include all beef, chicken & pork or a cheddar beef. If you choose the cheddar, it will change the taste slightly, but for cheese lovers, it will definitely be a great dish.
What is the Best Sugar Free BBQ Sauce to use?
There are so many sugar-free BBQ sauces out there, how do you know which one is the best to use with little smokies? I've tried so many varieties, but my favorite is called “Stevia Sweet BBQ” and it only has 1 g of sugar for 2 tbsp. It's made without any artificial sweeteners, and you can pronounce every single ingredient in it because they are all natural! It started off as a BBQ sauce served at a famous local BBQ restaurant in my town, and has now become a national brand that is sold all over the country. It has all the smokey flavors with a subtle sweetness and vinegar pop that makes this my all time favorite BBQ sauce. If you can't get this brand, you can absolutely substitute another variety, but pay attention to the nutrition label to avoid any unwanted ingredients.
Variations of the Recipe
This sugar-free BBQ smokie recipe is so versatile that you can easily make variations of it. You can add other spices or sauces to the mix to give it a unique flavor. Add some heat with chili pepper flakes, paprika, diced jalapenos, or a dash or two of hot sauce. If you’re not a fan of BBQ sauce, you can try using a sugar free teriyaki sauce or even my sugar free marinara sauce instead.
This sugar-free BBQ smokie recipe is delicious served on its own, or you can serve it with a side of roasted veggies or a fresh salad. For an added kick, top the smokies with a dollop of fresh guacamole or a sprinkle of your favorite cheese. It’s also great served with a side of mashed roasted cauliflower with crispy brussels sprouts, loaded cauliflower casserole, or Low Carb Creamed Spinach.
Can I Make These Sugar Free BBQ Smokies in a Crock Pot?
If you don't have an instant pot, you can still make this recipe the old fashioned way in your favorite slow cooker or crock pot. Just cook them on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
