My husbands dietician said no tomatoes on his kidney friendly diet (he is not on dialysis, Dr. says his kidney is stressed doesn't barbecue sauce have a tomato base? Dietitian comment: Yes barbecue sauce does contain tomato sauce which is a high source of potassium. Many kidney patients can include small amounts of higher potassium foods but it's best to follow the recommendation of your dietitian who know about your husband's individual needs.

I used 1&1/2 lbs of deer hamburger, 1&1/2 lbs of hot deer sausage and these were great with or without the sauce! Made my own sauce but Sweet Baby Ray's is best. oh & only used 1/2 teaspoon of thyme, wasn't too sure about a whole Tablespoon??

To thin most bbq sauces I use white vinagar and water with dried spices or powders garlic onion and the like this makes a good maronade for chicken, and beef in slowcooker normaly 1to 1 mix of the fluids and spices to bring back to taste. if you must have a thick sauce use arrowroot or corn starch

Patients thought these were a hit! However, the recipe does not say how much water to add to the BBQ sauce. I questimated and used 3/4c water to 1c store brand sauce and overall the taste was great! I used something called Cookies Western Style BBQ sauce and it had 160mg sodium for 2 TBSP serving.

I served these meatballs with the barbecue sauce on the side for dipping. They did not have much flavor at all.
