The closest thing I've ever made to BBQ chips involved (sorry if I don't give exact measurements but I didn't have any)
1-2 sweet potatoes/yams (these MUST be sliced paper-thin so hopefully you have a tool that can do that such as a spiral slicer or mandoline)
dried tomato (you can and should dry these yourself)
cayenne (as much as YOU like according to your spice level)
sea salt (to YOUR tastes)
a little honey or agave (bbq chips are kinda sweet)
lemon juice or apple cider vinegar
Slice your potatoes and then soak them in water and a little lemon juice or apple cider vinegar (not a lot as to overpower with either flavor) for at least 4 hours.
Drain and toss then in a mixture of olive oil and the sweetener just to coat them. Put on the dehydrator sheet (teflex, parchment paper or something) and dry them until mostly dry but they can still be a little pliable.
Grind your thoroughly-dried tomatoes to a powder in a coffee grinder, Magic Bullet or Vitamix and mix that with the other seasonings. I put mine in a large Ziploc bag and then added the partially (or fully, your choice) dried potatoes to coat them. Then, back into the dehydrator until nice and dry.
It's been a LONG time since I've done this but I'll tell you, my kids sure tore them up! So, forgive me if the recipe isn't perfect...again, I used no measurements (rarely do) and it's been a while. But hopefully they work out for you and turn out okay.
OHH...and an even quicker (I think) thing to do would be to still use the dried tomatoes and other spices but instead of using potatoes, use KALE!!! Make kale chips and use those spices. I bet you you'll love them. I'm gonna try that soon. I love kale chips (so do the kids) but I've only done plain, salt-n-vinegar, salt-n-pepper and teriyaki but not bbq. Thanks for indirectly inspiring me to try this out!
