BBQ Sauce Brands

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.)

Here is the link to all the sauces. http://www.theribhouse.com/store?page=shop.browse&category_id=1

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.

    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      I suspect I am dealing with vitamin deficiency, but I'm afraid that if I go to a specialist they're going to think I have MS. As a person with pretty bad health anxiety, I can't bring myself to make the appointments I know I should make. I presented to my GP about 9 months ago with fatigue and a bizarre tingly feeling in my lower left leg. I was also suffering digestive distress, but I've lived with that off and on my whole life, so that was the least of my worries. My blood tests showed that my B12 level was 280. They didn't turn up any other issues, but then again she did not order any other vitamin level tests, only thyroid and routine bloodwork. She called my B12 level "on the low end of normal" and put me on oral supplements. When we retested 6 weeks later, it was 1100 and she told me to drop it back because that was too high and too much B12 can cause health issues, too. I'm confused by that because I've read that it isn't possible to take too much. I started a new career in a new town, and simultaneously began to feel better. The fatigue went away first, followed by the tingling and other stuff. Still plagued by both extremes of digestive distress. Maybe I should also mention that I was diagnosed with GERD at age 29 and have been on PPIs for 10 years. At that time, nobody ever mentioned investigating my GERD at such a young age, just put me on the pills and said stay on them. A gastroenterologist concurred after a very brief office visit. Well, I can be bad about taking my medicines, so I got off the B12. I figured maybe my earlier issues were stress-related. Now my symptoms are back, but worse. I have tingling and some aching in the leg. I have a sensation in one spot on my upper arms like the skin is burning, but no rash or redness. I have the C extreme of digestive problem, only alleviated by taking lots of magnesium citrate capsules. Sometimes I feel easily chilled, like waves of goosebumps. I am working to get off the PPIs in case they are inhibiting my absorption of vitamins. My mom has had really bad IBS all her life, plus eczema, headaches, etc. I'm back on the B12 for about 5 days but have experienced no relief yet, however I do remember that it took about 2 months to feel better the last time. Getting ready to move, on top of being really scared about these health issues, is making me crazy. I'm only 40 years old!!! Here are my questions: 1. Do I go back to the GP and ask her to order a celiac blood test? I know NOT to go off gluten until I am tested. 2. Do I ask for a referral to a neurologist or gastroenterologist instead? 3. Do  I wait until my mom's gastro appointment next month, when she plans to ask for a celiac blood test? See if hers is positive? 4. Do I keep driving myself insane with the worry that I have a degenerative illness? Can anybody identify with any of this at all? 
    • Eeek confused! Positive biopsy, negative blood test???
      I would hope they would check for the other reasons for the endoscopy results.  A GI might not check for all of those so you may need to check with your regular doctor to start that process.
    • Depression / anxiety issues
      The second link I gave you was to a series of online video courses, you can try those for free to see if its something you think might help. There are also a lot of worksheets you can download, the first link had some I think but there are plenty of others out there if you search online.  Finally I had another look and found this: http://www.getselfhelp.co.uk/step1.htm  Which looks like a decent 7 step program Obviously its not as good as a dedicated session with a CBT counsellor, but the above may give you some tools you can use, especially when your thoughts are spiralling into a destructive circle. You could also search to see if there's any group sessions in Melbourne, that's how the NHS delivers it, they would be cheaper and there's really no need for one on one CBT, because it's more about delivering knowledge of the toolset. I approached it very sceptically but found it of some use, although at the time I was still under the gluten influence so it never tackled the root problem. The game changing aspect of discovering this is that you now know why the psychologist sessions didn't hit the mark, how could they when the root of your depression was your illness? My sessions now are far better and more enjoyable than when I was under a gluten fog.  Aside from all this the other advice holds, eat well, exercise, get sunlight every day and the longer you're on the diet the better you should get.  Oh and at least NI put up a hell of a fight in the Euros, hope you got to see that down under!

      How long did this last ? 😳

      Funny enough that a naturopath at a mind & body convention that I attended last week said I was also deficient in selenium. You put your finger into a small holder (Similar to having your heart rate checked) she said I'm deficient in b vitiams, selenium vitiam d, she also said Somthing about having a lot of mercury in my body, to be honest it all went over my head as yet another thing to deal with so I haven't looked much further into it as it was all just to much, I have a print out of the results that she gave me tho, I'm going to look into it. Thank you for taking your time to reply to this thread

      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.
