Gluten Free Barbecue Sauces. While barbecue sauce may not initially seem like a gluten-containing product, for those who are especially sensitive to gluten, common ingredients found in store-bought sauces (including barley-based beer, soy sauce, and even some vinegars) can cause problems. 

Below is a list of gluten free barbecue sauces that will delight your taste buds without triggering your symptoms.


  1. Bone Suckin’ Sauce – described as a “Western North Carolina tomato based sauce” this barbecue sauce is not only gluten free, but also doesn’t contain any high fructose corn syrup, canola oil, or preservatives.
  2. Jack Daniel’s BBQ Sauce – while Jack Daniel’s sauces come in a variety of flavors, only the Original #7, Hickory Brown Sugar, Spicy, and Masterblend recipes are listed as gluten free.
  3. Heinz BBQ Sauces – in addition to their Jack Daniel’s line of BBQ sauces, Heinz also offers many other gluten free options, including their Regular, Chicken & Rib, Garlic, Honey Garlic, Hickory, and Sweet & Smoky flavors.
  4. Organicville – as the name suggests, Organicville’s two BBQ sauce varieties – Original and Tangy – are not only gluten free, but also USDA certified organic. They are also both vegan and made with agave nectar.
  5. Sweet Baby Ray’s  – Sweet Baby Ray’s lists 9 different BBQ sauces on their website as gluten free: BBQ, Hawaiian, Sweet n’ Spicy, Sweet Golden Mustard, Honey BBQ, Hickory & Brown Sugar, Honey Chipotle, Sweet Vidalia Onion, and Raspberry Chipotle. While their labels don’t currently flaunt the FDA’s “gluten free” stamp, they are (according to their website) in the process of remedying this.
  6. Stubb’s – not only are all seven flavors of their barbecue sauces (Original, Sticky Sweet, Spicy, Sweet Heat, Hickory Bourbon, Smokey Mesquite, and Honey Pecan) gluten free, so is their entire line of rubs, marinades, and sauces. All of their products are GFCO certified.

You really can have your ribs and the BBQ sauce too!
