Generally, BBQ food drums up images of hamburgers and hot dogs on big buns with all the toppings. There is nothing wrong with that image at all – Lord, knows I love a good burger. But it’s not as easy when you’re gluten-free. Premade burgers and hot dogs can sometimes have gluten (and preservatives and nitrates) not to mention finding the perfect gluten-free bun can be challenging. (Kinnickinnick hot dog buns are great though). So, we decided to do things a little different this time with a delicious gluten-free BBQ recipe roundup.
We imagined a big BBQ buffet style table or a neighbourhood pot luck dinner or a big cookout when camping. A BBQ where the menu is on another level but not so much that it’s out of place in the great outdoors. These are just some tasty dishes that are perfect when eaten indoors but also make for a delicious gluten-free BBQ recipe roundup too.

The basics of how to make a Charcuterie board including how to construct the perfect board too for those with less experience. Be sure to check out our gluten-free Hummus recipe (with variations) for different dip options to include. You can also review our gluten-free candied nuts recipe along with our gluten-free chocolate list and gluten-free candy guide for those sweet components that every board needs.
This is one of our most popular recipes because it’s easy to make and tastes oh so good. There are no words. It’s best on steak so give it a try on the best piece of beef you can afford (but it’s good on anything).
This chicken rub has an amazing depth of flavour and it’s perfect for chicken (or pork). Mu personal favourite is boneless, skinless chicken thighs.
Whether you decide to cook the pork on the BBQ or not, this dish will be a welcome addition to the BBQ table. It’s a very special taco recipe.
These could be cooked on the BBQ if you want or you can cook them in the oven. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs are just so juicy and delicious and the stuff recipe compliments the flavours of the chicken perfectly.
This is another extremely popular recipe. We’ve learned that everyone loves a cutlet. They are so versatile yet can go with so many sauces, condiments (see below). If you are looking for another dish for your BBQ table, look no further.
We put together these lists of sauces above to make gluten-free shopping easier. When it comes to these prepared sauces though, it is best to only use sauces that state they are gluten-free on the label. Although we have done preliminary vetting of these brands, we encourage you to READ ALL LABELS. We cannot stress that enough.
