Crock Pot Low Carb BBQ Bourbon Kielbasa:

Cut the Kielbasa

Start by cutting the kielbasa with your kitchen knife. If you are serving it as an appetizer I recommend cutting it about 1″-1 1/2″ thick. You can cut it thicker if you like, but this is a perfect size to serve with toothpicks as an easy appetizer for your guests.

Add ingredients to Crock Pot

Next up, add the sliced kielbasa to the crock pot followed by the barbecue sauce and bourbon. I’ve been using G Hughes Sugar-Free Barbecue Sauce and absolutely love it! I was surprised to see they also carry it at Walmart. While I used the regular flavor, they also have a smokehouse version that would work for this recipe as well.

The last ingredient is a bit of bourbon. You can use whatever you have on hand. I went with Jim Beam because that is what was in my cabinet. You could also omit this if you want and add a little bit of water. This gives it a little bit of a kick without overpowering the BBQ flavor.

Cover and Cook on Low

Once you have given the ingredients a quick stir, cover the crock pot and cook it on low for 4 hours. The smell will have your mouth watering! Just add toothpicks and place them in a serving dish. Watch how quickly these tasty treats will be eaten!
