AIP-Friendly White Barbecue Sauce

On Saturday, our friends Stacy and Matt of the Paleo Parents, hosted their annual Halloween party. Brent and I have a habit of inadvertently bringing foods to their parties that Stacy can’t have (she follows an autoimmune protocol, AIP), and I always feel bad about it. Plus, we knew another AIP friend, Sarah Ballantyne, aka The Paleo Mom, was going to be attending. So this time, I was determined to make sure we brought something that everyone could enjoy.

I began experimenting a couple weeks in advance, and the result was this AIP-Friendly White Barbecue Sauce. It is tangy and smoky, but you won’t find a multitude of nightshades that are present in traditional barbecue sauces. In fact, the only pepper is white pepper. It’s optional because some people following AIP can tolerate it (Stacy and Sarah both can), but others cannot.

Lastly, I want to point out that I made this white barbecue sauce using our homemade mayo recipe. Some folks can tolerate eggs when following a modified AIP. However, if you’re following a strict AIP, you’ll want to use egg-free mayo. Melissa at The Clothes Make the Girl has an excellent egg-less homemade mayo recipe that we’ve linked to in our ingredients list for you all to try.

After tasting my AIP-Friendly White Barbecue Sauce, Brent crafted our AIP-Friendly Game Day Wings recipe—Also live on the blog today!—and the two are a match made in heaven. Everyone at the Halloween party enjoyed the wings and sauce. We hope you will, too.

Ingredients
2 C homemade mayo or, for strict AIP, 2 C egg-less mayo from The Clothes Make The Girl
1/2 C apple cider vinegar
1/4 C freshly prepared horseradish
1 tsp coarse salt
1 tsp white pepper (optional)
2 tsp liquid smoke

Method

Pour in the liquid smoke and stir until it’s thoroughly incorporated. Let the sauce rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight, to let the flavors develop.

      Sarah,
      Well, color me embarrassed! You’re absolutely right–those following strict AIP should not have eggs. I’ve updated the recipe to include a note about that and a link to a great egg-free mayo recipe. Thanks!
