The sauerkraut may come as a surprise, but being of part German heritage with ancestry going back into Kentucky, everyone who can identify with that will taste these and say "That's what I'm talkin' about!" I have adapted the recipe for low carb/diabetic (part of my ancestry as well), but feel free to use regular versions of ketchup, molasses/honey, or brown sugar. I bought my sugar-free molasses syrup online (naturesflavors.com) I don't know where I'd be without it!

I made these for our July 4th BBQ and everyone loved them. I used regular molasses, ketchup and brown sugar, and left out the whiskey. I cooked them for several hours in the crock pot and they were fantastic. I think they're going to be a regular for our BBQs!
