Barbecuing is different from grilling because the cuts of meat, pork, or steak that you use are slow-cooked over indirect heat. Cooking the meat over a slow charcoal or gas flame, makes the meat become melting, tender, and rich flavored. However, these delicious meaty delights cannot be completed without a barbecue sauce or healthily put “Gluten-Free Barbecue Sauce.

I have put together a list of brands to check when next you are shopping for a gluten-free barbecue sauce. These sauces have exquisite flavors and can be used with almost everything, from veggie kababs to burgers as well as ribs! 

Don’t worry, you can easily buy these sauces from most grocery stores.

Meet your gluten-free BBQ sauces!

Bone Sucking Sauce

There are a lot of gluten-free sauces out there but I fell for this one!  I love this sauce because you can see the chunks of peppers and onions in this tangy-sweet sauce. 

Originally, Bone sucking sauce is sweetened with molasses and honey. It is enriched with flavors of horseradish, apple cider vinegar, and mustard. It has an irresistible hint of smoke and it is great for grilling and dipping.

According to Food and Wine Magazine,  the company’s president’s grandmother [Sandi Ford] used to suck the sauce off ribs and chicken bones, hence the name Bone Sucking Sauce. Haha!

Jack Daniel’s Barbecue Sauce

Not every Jack Daniel’s Barbecue sauce is free from gluten. But, they offer duly certified gluten-free sauces:

  • Hickory Brown Sugar
  • Spicy and master BBQ blend
  • Original #7
  • Honey smokehouse

Stubb’s Legendary BBQ Sauce

Their website shows that they are doing a good job. Glad to announce that I wasn’t disappointed after getting the sauces.

From marinating to basting and dipping, Stubb’s BBQ sauce is guaranteed to fire up your BBQ recipes.

Organicville BBQ Sauce

Sometimes getting a BBQ sauce that isn’t too sweet can be a big deal, and when you eventually find the ones that aren’t too sweet, you still have to grumble about their spiciness. However, with Organicville barbecue sauce, all your stress comes to an end. This sauce isn’t too sweet nor is it too spicy. It is simply perfect and natural. 

It is made with agave nectar and contains no preservatives. This one should be on your next shopping list.

Sweet Baby Ray’s Honey Barbecue Sauce

Sweeten up your ribs, chickens, and steaks with this sauce. You can use it when you cook on the grill or even on your stovetop. I have used it several times, and I loved the result. Its squeezable bottle packaging makes it easily dispensing.

However, if you have an issue with your sauce being sweet, this may not be the best option. More so, this gluten-free barbecue sauce is made with high fructose syrup, which poses health concerns. Since I am all for healthy recipes and products, I have reservations about this one but use them minimally if you insist on using them. That’s my two cents!

Lillie’s Q Hot Smoky BBQ

Lillie’s Hot Smoky BBQ is Hubby’s favorite. He describes it as sweet at first and having a nice kick at the end. Prefer spicy barbecue sauces? Then you should go the Lillie way.

I also love the fact that the spice doesn’t overpower the rest of the ingredients, so you get to have a taste of all the flavors put together to make this delectable sauce.

Sky Valley Organic Korean BBQ

Whether you are throwing a housewarming party or having a little family reunion, Sky valley organic Korean BBQ sauce is your go-to star ingredient if you want to give your guest a classy and extraordinary treat. 

The taste of this barbecue sauce is moderately sweet, spicy, and tangy. So if you want a bit of all these in your BBQ recipes,  sky valley BBQ will get the job done.

This sauce is flavored with molasses, vinegar, cayenne, ginger, jalapeño, and garlic.

Lillie G’ Gold BBQ Sauce

Wondering why the name of this sauce has Gold in it? That’s due to the mustard base added to this BBQ sauce. Lillie’s gluten-free sauce is for sure loved by everyone. I am sure even the picky kids in your family won’t say no to this one.

Say NO to These BBQ Sauces

Here is a checklist of some BBQ sauces you may have to say no to.

Hunt’s BBQ Barbecue Sauce: Hunt’s is a Conagra food company that manufactures BBQ sauces. Their BBQ sauces are gluten-free, however, they haven’t been certified as a gluten-free provider of barbeque sauce. So, if you are sensitive to gluten, watch out for this BBQ sauce. 

Stone Brewing Co.BBQ sauce (Not Gluten-free): Stone’s barbecue is made from barley beer. Hence, it is not gluten-free.

Trader Joe’s Organic Kansas City Style BBQ Sauce: This BBQ sauce isn’t listed as gluten-free on Trader Joe’s BBQ sauce. It doesn’t contain gluten-free ingredients, hence it isn’t listed on the gluten-free product list.

Have you made a choice yet? Guess it’s time to go grill up your favorite veggies and meat and dip them in any of these seductive gluten-free sauces. Enjoy! See ya around?
