BBQ Sauce Recipe for Someone With Colitis

I have a son with colitis. He can't eat beef, so he eats a lot of chicken and turkey. Barbecue sauce is one of his favorite things to put on poultry, but almost all store bought bbq sauces have a base of vinegar, a big no-no for him. Too much spice is also bad. Id appreciate any bbq sauce recipes that don't use acids or a lot of spice. Garlic and onion are OK. He also loves peach mango salsa, so some fruit is OK. Molasses and teriyaki are OK, too. A small amount of mustard is fine, but not too much. Thank you.

I don't have a recipe, but try rolling your own.
Looking at the last few lines of your post, it seems that you have a pretty good start on the ingredient list. On the assumption you want a tomato based sauce, try subbing lemon or lime juice for the vinegar. Most tomato based sauces are heavy on the sweetener. Both molasses and brown sugar are popular. Add either to some tomato sauce along with sauteed onion, garlic, and bell pepper, (finely chopped) then simmer at a low heat. Don't even taste it for at least an hour. Don't be afraid to add water. Stuff to add at this point, a few red pepper flakes(?), a little mustard, a few drops of liquid smoke, the citrus juices. If teriyaki is OK, ( contains vinegar ) try that. Also maybe Worcestershire sauce (vinegar too). For my taste buds, I find adding a little tomato paste gives it a sweet tangy zing.

Both of these recipes call for ketchup, but if he can't have ketchup, you can substitute tomato soup or tomato sauce.


Here is a recipe that only uses 2 ingredients, ketchup and a can of cola.

Here is a recipe with just a few ingredients, only 1 tbsp. vinegar, you could leave that out.

I hope these are the type of recipes you are looking for. Best of luck in your search.

I haven't tried this personally, but it might help. 1 10 3/4 ounce of condensed Tomato Soup, 2 Tablespoons of honey, 1 teaspoon dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon onion powder. Stir together and use when you grill your chicken.
