Paleo BBQ Sauce

If you follow me on Instagram, you know that a few weeks ago, Rob and spent the weekend making homemade BBQ sauce and meatballs for our friend's Super Bowl party. It was the second time we've made this sauce and we are both obsessed. We ended up saving some of the sauce so that we can have it on-hand because it's THAT good. I'll be posting the recipe for the meatballs and BBQ sauce soon so stay tuned!
