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

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.

    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.  
    • Exactly what are your allergy symptoms?  Were they IgG or IgE?  Allergy testing as a whole is not super accurate -- especially the IgG.  Were you on any H1 or H2 antihistamines for the last five days  when you were tested?   As far as celiac testing, four days without consuming gluten probably would not impact testing.  
    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way.
