Nutritional values

Homemade barbecue sauce packs tons more flavor than store-bought kinds, and is usually much lower in fat and calories. The addition of fresh pineapple to this recipe also provides protein-splitting enzymes that make it easier for the stomach to process larger portions of meat.

If you want to save calories, feel free to prepare this sauce without bacon.
