Keto is more than a diet for many people; it is a way of life that helps them accomplish their health and weight goals. While some may dismiss Keto as a fad, others have found tremendous success and reached their weight loss objectives by following a Keto or low carb diet.

Adopting a keto diet requires you to seek out items that will fulfill your lifestyle, including BBQ foods and dishes to grill. However, if you are familiar with Keto, you will notice how difficult it is to prepare and find low-carb meals. So, here are seven foods and ideas to get you started.

Chilled prosciutto-Wrapped Asparagus

Prosciutto is Keto friendly because it is low in net carbs and contains no sugars. This asparagus-wrapped side dish is a low-carb, Italian-inspired dish.

You can grill this delicious treat for approximately 10 minutes to get it a little crispy and browned.

No-Bean Keto Chili

Forget the Beans! Keto no-bean chili, sometimes known as Texas chili, retains all of the typical chili tastes while keeping your carbohydrates under control and is high on fat. You can quickly prepare low-carb chili using a grill, slow cooker, or instant pot. This is a low-carb for lunch or dinner snack and perfect for any time of year.

Top the chili with sour cream, cheese, and avocado for a complete meal and more flavor. Use your pellet smoker grill to add a hint of wood-fired smoke flavor.

Crispy Keto Cauliflower Tots

Say goodbye to French fries and hello to low-carb veggie tots. These crispy cauliflower tots are an excellent keto BBQ side and favorite party snack.

So, you are probably wondering how to create crispy cauliflower tots. Well, one trick is to use an air fryer or smokeless indoor grill.

Ginger Miso Turkey Burgers

Light up the grill and grab some turkey burgers. At about 1 g Net Carb per serving, turkey burgers can be an excellent BBQ day dish. Add lettuce, onions, and even sugar-free ketchup for a full meal. When grilling turkey burgers, use wood chips to increase flavor.

Grilled Ribeye Steaks

Ribeye steaks are a great source of protein, and when grilled on the grill or over a wood fire, they make a tasty meal. Steaks cooked over an open fire with a side of veggies make an amazing keto supper.

Keto Teriyaki Beef on a Stick

Teriyaki Beef on a stick is a flavorful dish and easy to cook on your grill. However, to make this tasty dish keto-friendly, use Tamaki sauce instead and keep those net carbs at bay.

Last but not least, KETO BBQ Sauce.

Sauces are a huge issue for individuals on Keto or low-carb diets. Ordinary BBQ sauces are among the worst sauces for anyone wanting to stay in ketoses. Why? BBQ sauce is loaded with sugar. Sriracha, mustard, and ketchup are all high in sugar content.

Fortunately, there are an increasing variety of keto-friendly alternatives available in the market, and brands like Lillie’s Q zero sugar Carolina BBQ Sauce and Matty’s organic sauces are great options. 

Finding a good Keto BBQ side dish or entrée takes some creativity, but it is not impossible to enjoy your barbecue and maintain your Keto lifestyle.
