I am looking for a gluten free BBQ sauce. With the warmer weather coming up, we are going to be doing a lot of grilling! I've spent the entire winter in the kitchen and am looking forward to doing some of the cooking outside.

Which bbq sauces are gluten free? I would prefer one that says gluten free on the label. I have heard that Kraft bbq sauce if safe but it has a ton of ingredients so I dont know how they can be sure but I don't know. I haven't been brave enough to try it. What do you use? I would be willing to make my own too if anyoen has a recipe.

Thanks!

Thanks Patti. I looked on their website and didn't see anything about it beng gluten free. Does it say it on the bottle or how do you know it's okay?

Thanks

I Use Gates. Called the corporate office and talked to one of the Gates family. They don't say gluten-free on them though. You might be able to get that where you live.

It is not something I use myself. But through this board I have heard that Kraft has some products you may want to look at. Kraft will clearly label any gluten source, no matter how small, in the ingredients list.

Haven't bought BBQ Sauce for years. If you're still interested I literally have nearly 100 recipes and make many regularly. Soooo much better in my opinion as you know what goes into it. And you just can't beat homemade. One of my favourite AP recipes (incredible on baby back ribs) is:

Sweet and Spicy BBQ Sauce (makes 2 1/4 c)

2/3 c tomato paste

2/3 c water

1/2 c packed dark brown sugar

1/4 c unsulfured molasses

1/4 c cider vinegar

2 T chili powder (I grind chiles to make my own so I know it's gluten-free)

2 T light corn syrup

1 T Worcestershire sauce

1 t onion powder

1 t salt

1 t freshly ground black pepper

1/2 t garlic powder

1/2 t cayenne

(I use McCormick's spices as they are gluten-free.)

Whisk all together in medium saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Simmer on low for about 10 minutes.

I make an awesome smokey BBQ sauce, too, if interested.

That would be why, as a diabetic, I don't use BBQ sauce. :o

I know lots of people say that Sweet Baby Rays is safe for them.....but I just wanted to mention that I get sick from it. It's happened more than once. I've gotten my usual glutened reaction. I'm not sure what ingredient in it is getting me, but it gets me good, in a bad way! And no, it was not any other food I had. I can isolate it as the cuprit each time.

Yet, I know many of you eat it safely.....

I use Austin's own, and it says Gluten free on the bootle. Of course, I live in Texas, so it may be a local item (they do sell it online, from their website). I use to buy the expensive gluten free BBQ sauce from Whole foods, of course, it's $5 for a tiny bottle, I get more bang for my buck with Austins own.

I can't find where it says "gluten free" on their website, but I double checked the bottle in my fridge and it says "gluten free, and Vegan" It has corn syrup, NOT HFCS...so glad

I can't eat Sweet Baby Rays because of the HFCS. I know most people don't have a problem with it, but that might be what you are reactiong to as well if you don't eat much processed food. It used to be my DH's favorite brand too! I was so bummed out that all the flavors had HFCS. For those that can eat Sweet Baby Rays though, there are always coupons out for it when summer gets close. I used to stock up on it for under .50 a bottle. Kraft BBQ sauce is almost always free with a coupon deal as well. I don't care for the taste of Kraft however.

That recipe sounds fab love2travel! I will have to try that sometime and sub coconut aminos for the worchestershire sauce.

I'll bet your right, HFCS is something I avoid. Maybe that is what I react to. I eat mostly organic, and not a lot of processed foods.

We use The Rib House. It says Gluten Free right on the bottle. The ingredients list looks fabulous (all items you can identify) and it tastes great (probably because it is all natural and no chemicals). We get it at our local King Sooper which is a Kroger brand store so maybe it is available in other stores.

Here is a link to order it on-line if you want. This link is to the mild page but they have a whole range of products. I linked to this page because it says right on the top of the page that ALL sauces are gluten free. Yeah! (Ok I just followed my own link and the top banner keeps changing but right after the ingredients list on each bottle it has those blessed little words in bold type GLUTEN FREE.)

I made this today to use on BBG chicken tonight. The only things I did differently was to use coocnut aminos in place of the W sauce (I can't have soy), use light brown sugar instead of dark (didn't have any dark), and instead of cayenne I used my own home-grown ground dried chilis (which is VERY spicy so I only used 1/4 teaspoon). I tasted a little after heating it up and it is YUMMY! Thank you for the recipe! This would be very good on slow cooked ribs. I will have to make it again sometime for beef ribs or a BBQ rack of lamb (I'm allergic to pork).

I can't have refined sugars, so I use Bone Suckin sauce. It's great! Everyone in my family loves it.

Robbie's BBQ sauce (west coast, typically found in health food stores) is marked gluten free on the label. However, there is a disclaimer (good for them) that they are manufactured in a facility which also does wheat. They also use some distilled vinegar now instead of all apple cider vinegar, so they may not be for the super - sensitive. They do use mostly honey for their sweetener in it.

Modern BBQ sauces are pretty tomatoey, sweet, and syrupy with molasses. Older southern style ones are less so, more vinegery, spicy, and thinner.

    • Anxiously waiting
      Thanks heaps. I will def be going private if the wait is too long. I have done a little research but i thought a gluten intolerance and coeliac was the same lol. My iron levels are just below average apparently but she said not bad enough for me to be this tired.
    • Celiac.com: Traveling While Gluten-Free? What To Consider From Someone with Celiac Disease

    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      DH is celiac disease that appears on the skin (gluten triggered).  It does not appear when you are consuming dairy, which sounds like a separate issue for you.   A DH biopsy requires active lesions (new/fresh) from consuming gluten.  So, if you want to be tested via a skin biopsy you must go back on gluten.  Finding a dermatologist who knows exactly how to biopsy for DH is often difficult.  Be sure your Derm is knowledable and has biopsied for DH before. Why no endoscopy for now?  I bet your GI  knows that your insurance will deny the endoscopy.  After all, you tested negative to the blood panel.  Your GI should not even ordered the blood panel knowing that you had been gluten free for months.  You have to be consuming gluten daily for 8 to 12 weeks for the blood test to be accurate.   Did you ever test positive?  Why did your primary diagnose you?  Having the gene just means you can develop celiac disease.  Some 30% of the population carries the genes.  The gene test should only be used to help rule out celiac disease.  
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      No one can say exactly how long you might be able to get a positive dh biopsy after having been gluten free as long as you have been. The Chicago Celiac Disease Center says this: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/im-scheduled-to-have-a-skin-biopsy-to-screen-for-celiac-disease-should-i-maintain-a-gluten-containing-diet-similar-to-those-who-are-being-screened-via-blood-or-intestinal-biopsy/ http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-is-a-gluten-challenge/ You said you had a flare of the plaque psoriasis -- that is NOT dh so why do you think the dh biopsy will show positive? Testing positive for the celiac genes does not mean you have celiac disease. 30+% of the population have the celiac genes but only very, very small fraction of those people do or will present with celiac disease. The gene tests are only used to rule OUT celiac NOT to diagnose it. Frankly, I can understand why your GI does not put any stock in your Primary doc's thinking you have celiac disease. A positive celiac gene and the boils in your armpits which the GI never saw and were never biopsied for dh but they resolved on a gluten free diet and so did your plaque psoriasis. That's all the GI has to go on. I don't know why you are pushing an endoscopy. If you've been eating strictly gluten free then an endoscopic biopsy for celiac will be negative.  Your PCP should have done a celiac blood panel on you back when you were still eating gluten rather than dx you based on the celiac gene you tested positive for.
    • How effective is HD skin biopsy after being gluten free for a year
      I've been gluten free for a year now and my gastro wants to wait for the endocopy until I'm eligible for the colonoscopy when I turn 50 later this year. I don't think she believes I have celiac, even though I tested positive for one of the genes associated with celiac and my primary has diagnosed me as having celiac. The gluten sensitivity blood tests came back negative, of course, since I was gluten free for 9 months at that time. Why is she waiting? At any rate, My digestive system has improved greatly, but when I reintroduced non fat Greek yogurt in my diet, the plaques psoriasis returned on my elbows. My primary believes it is dermatitis herpetiformis (as well as I, since before going gluten free, I used to get boils in my armpits) and I'm scheduled for a skin biopsy in 3 weeks. However, I eliminated dairy from my diet 4 weeks ago and the plaques psoriasis is healing like it did when I eliminated gluten from my diet a year ago. If the scar is reduced to eczema, does that mean there still are IGA deposits in my skin? I don't want to resume dairy since I experienced a cross reaction to the casein in cheese and found lactose was on that same list. So my question is, how long do the granular IGA deposits remain in the skin in order to have a valid skin biopsy test performed for dermatitis herpetiformis? Since it takes 1-2 years for dermatitis herpetiformis to heal on a gluten free diet and I just had a recent flare up, can I continue on my dairy free diet or should I resume eating non fat Greek yogurt for the next 3 weeks just for this skin biopsy?

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
