Review: G. Hughes / Guy’s Sugar Free, Gluten Free BBQ Sauces and a Giveaway


I found these goodies at my local grocery store a few days ago (Heinen’s, if you’re local to Northeast Ohio) and I was so excited to have found such a gem on store shelves. It was hidden in a special promotional section of the store, tucked far away from the sauce aisle. I’m lucky to have spotted them, because, well- wouldn’t you be excited if you saw these in your grocery store? This wonderful sauce has just 2g carbs per serving and is gluten free. What more could you ask for?

I scoured the label for information on the maker, but came up pretty much empty handed. After some Googling, I found another sauce that I thought was similar– Guy’s Award Winning BBQ Sauce. An email later, I found out that this sauce was indeed created by Guy’s sauces, but it wasn’t yet available on their website. The original Guy’s sauces come in both regular and sugar free varieties, but obviously we’re referring only to the sugar free ones here. You’ll find the traditional flavors in original, spicy, smokey garlic and hot flavors, but the ones I found at my Heinen’s store are pictured here– maple brown and hickory. Guy’s original flavors have just 1g of carbs per serving!
The first thing I made was a grilled chicken breast with the maple brown sauce. The sauce was pleasantly sweet and slightly smoky with a nice tang. It’s not spicy, and it reminded me a lot of KC Masterpiece or Sweet Baby Ray’s. It even caramelized on the chicken. Can you say heaven?
My second usage of the sauce was with the hickory flavor, which I put on some boneless country style pork ribs. Perfection is all I have to say– the sauce is nice and smoky and the hickory flavor is prominent. The sauce is nice and thick and cooked down well, becoming a little sticky– just how we like ribs to be in our house. Yum!
Try not to lick your screen. I know you want to taste this. And you just might have the chance, because I’m giving away a bottle each of hickory and maple brown to one lucky winner.
You can buy Guy’s original sauces on Netrition (click here to purchase), but unless you are local to the Cleveland area, you can’t purchase the maple brown or hickory varieties just yet.

It takes a lot of trial and error to find the "right" fit for a low carb recipe. I have made some ... different low carb desserts. You don't need to go through that! I made a list of my favorite ingredients as well as what stores you can find them at. Enjoy!

Eating healthy, for me, is about more than weight loss like it used to be. It’s about controlling my blood sugar levels and obtaining normal–or relatively normal–hormone levels. I still struggle to lose weight efficiently, but eating a wheat, sugar and gluten free diet helps to control some of the problems I’ve encountered with these health issues of mine.
