It's summer time, which means all the crockpot meal preps and all the planning ahead. I was looking into freezer crockpot meals and found this blog post with 31 crockpot recipes you can freeze ahead of time. I've never tried freezing crockpot meals, but it's that time of summer when life gets really busy, and with prepping for mom as well, I figured this would really help me out. My go-to options for paleo BBQ sauce are Tessemae's BBQ sauce or Steve's PaleoChef Peach BBQ, both sold at the Whole Foods near me, which is super convenient! For this recipe I used Tessemae's BBQ sauce and I prepped and froze the ingredients beforehand as the recipe calls for. The pineapple BBQ mix was a sweet barbecue taste and the chicken turned out delicious. The barbecue spiced brussels sprouts on the other hand were more of a spicy barbecue taste, but still very yummy as well. I definitely recommend using no more than 2 Tbsp of that homemade BBQ rub with the 2lbs of brussels. The recipe makes close to 4 Tbsp and that is way too much to use all at once. Anyways, if you really like barbecue then this is a meal for you!
