Barbecue sauce is a funny thing. Religion for some and with good reason. The complexities of making a good sauce are debated endlessly. This recipe relies heavily on the brown sugar and jam to create a caramelized glaze on whatever you decide to use it on.
Sugar adds calories, plain and simple. If you are really watching calories there are a lot of sauces out there with fewer calories that are actually pretty low in sodium. I use them actually more often than I make my own. I look for ones that are low in both calories and sodium.
