Maple BBQ Sauce

5-Minute, easy Maple BBQ Sauce that is perfect for pork and chicken. It’s sweet with a little heat. 

I needed a BBQ sauce asap and the fans on the Ditch The Wheat Facebook page came to my rescue. 

One individual posted this recipe for spicy maple bbq sauce from Life Style by Poliquin, and I was immediately drawn to its simplicity of it.

A lot of condiments are not gluten free, including bbq sauce. If you have a sensitivity or allergy, it’s great to learn how to make your own condiments.

Quick Maple BBQ Sauce  

The sauce required no cooking and I had all the ingredients on hand, which was great since I needed to use the sauce for a family BBQ in a few hours.

I adapted the recipe for my liking by taking out the medjool dates and replacing it with maple syrup. 

I also replaced the mustard with dried ground mustard because mustard contains vinegar and sometimes vinegar is made from wheat.

The same goes with soy sauce. If you ever see a recipe needing soy sauce use coconut amino acids (you can find it here) instead which is gluten free and tastes great.

Also, keep in mind this recipe tastes spicy when you sample the sauce after making it. Every time I have barbecued with it, the meat, is not extremely spicy.

Maple BBQ Sauce Ingredients

This easy BBQ sauce uses pantry items. I highly suggest using liquid smoke. You can buy it on Amazon. It adds amazing smokiness to the sauce.

How to Make Maple BBQ Sauce

Mix all together in a bowl. *Add the cayenne last in little amounts for desired heat.

Spread onto meat. I have used this sauce on ribs, chicken, and hamburger patties and it works great for all of them.

Store the sauce in a glass bottle (like this one). So far my sauce has lasted 2 weeks in the fridge without any signs of mold.

Notes

This recipe made enough to cover 1 rack of ribs, and 2 quarter chickens, and I still have about 1/4 cup leftover.
