1. Keto BBQ Chicken
Let’s start with a classical yet quite versatile recipe that never gets old – BBQ chicken! You can prepare it on the grill, oven, or maybe even an air fryer. Other than that, chicken is one of those foods that is quite easy to combine with some appealing side dishes. For instance, you can put some of your favorite keto-friendly veggies and fry them together with your meat as well as serve some green, tasty salad that will refresh your spring lunch!
Either option you choose, this recipe is truly a great start and something your entire family can enjoy!

2. BBQ Keto Meatballs
These tasteful meatballs come as another interesting idea that truly deserved its place within our list of keto BBQ recipes! So, which ingredients do you need here? Lean ground beef, some BBQ flavored pork rinds, cheddar, eggs, heavy cream, water, low-sugar ketchup, and some of the preferred seasoning.
If you want, you can make some adjustments and simply take plain pork rinds. Still, we recommend going with flavored one since BBQ food is all about mixing interesting yet intense flavors, after all, right? Don’t forget to let us know how it worked!

3. Keto BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup
Sounds a little bit confusing when you see the name of this recipe, doesn’t it? Don’t worry, it turns out to be an amazing combo you should definitely try!
This particular recipe brings an interesting combination of both BBQ chicken and ingredients we usually have on pizza – and all that in this hearty, delicious soup.
As you can see, not all of our collected keto BBQ recipes are necessarily adjusted for larger gatherings – some of these you can use during some busy weeknights as well as occasions when you just want to enjoy some nice food and watch Netflix.
P.S. This meal is freezer friendly which means you can stock it for some further days when you won’t feel like cooking, but you’ll still search for some nice, comforting food.

This one brings some pretty useful tips and tricks that will help you get a crispy chicken without having to use an (air) fryer. Since the author comes from Kansas City (well-known as one of the BBQ cities), this recipe surely comes as a valuable source of handy BBQ information!

5. Keto BBQ Ribs
Here we are, looking at one of the classics – nice, juicy pork ribs! Still, meat choice is definitely not the essential part of the BBQ, don’t you think? Creating a good sauce as well as some seasoning mixture is that distinguishing factor that makes BBQ food so delicious.
This version is suitable for both those who aren’t into spicy things and those whose friends desperately looking for a glass of water after the first bite. In other words, simply adjust the spicy mixture by adding a bit more (or less) cayenne pepper and – enjoy some nice BBQ ribs as you love the most.
P.S. Did you know yogurt and milk work much better when you eat something too spicy than water?

8. Pork Lon Ribs with Keto BBQ Sauce
I love this blog since it often comes as a great source of interesting keto-friendly ideas. Also, this recipe, as many other low-carb BBQ ones, offers a tasty version of homemade barbeque sauce.
When buying one in a supermarket, you can expect a high-carb version full of refined sugars and other unhealthy carby additions. That’s why you can search for a keto-friendly one or, even better, make one on your one. After all, you will be certain of what you are eating as well as be able to control which ingredients you are going to add to create your very own perfect sauce.

What is a better way to finish our list of keto BBQ recipes than with this appealing idea of BBQ chicken zoodle casserole? This option is especially going to come in handy if you got tired of classical zucchini noodles, but still want to prepare some interesting zucchini dish.
Zucchini is a great summerish choice that will certainly refreshen warm days and perfectly fit into most of your recipes.

All you need is 6 simple ingredients: zucchinis, non-fat Greek yogurt, BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese, shredded chicken breast, and a bit of roughly chopped cilantro.
