      I am nonsymptomatic.  I do get my blood tested every other year, but I am not sure how reliable that would be.  I think that since I am trying my darndest not to consume gluten, even if I was not doing it right, I would probably get a false negative on a blood test. 
      I am extra careful to avoid cross contamination, and rely heavily on other Celiac's experiences.  These forums are a god-send for that purpose.  One question I have never been able to resolve is if I should be avoiding all oats.  I do have gluten-free oats once in a while, but some are sensitive to even gluten-free oats.  Without symptoms, would I know?

      Hi Patt,
      I am not in New Brunswick, but I am in nearby Haliifax.  Also was born and raised in Moncton, so I still travel to NB quite a bit.

      Thanks kareng.  I have never bought Mikes at a store.  I only ordered it at a bar once or twice because they had not gluten-free beers or ciders.  Never got a chance to read the label.  Now I am usually very consciencous of reading labels, but I think that the rules are different for alcoholic beverages (at least in Canada).  So I ordered it "It's just lemonade, right?"   That just shows how dangerous it can be to make assumptions.  Learned my lesson.

      Does this article look legit?  The part on beer is totally in line with what I have read in the past, but Mike's hard lemonade?  I never would have guessed.

      Experiment with the rub.  I just use what I have on hand.  I do not wrap the salmon, but use a vegetable grill so I don't lose any if it falls apart.  I find the rub helps hold the fillets together anyway.  If you prefer to wrap it in foil, that might change the cooking time, I'm not sure.

      For salmon fillets, make a rub of equal parts chili powder and cumin, crush in a bit of an herb (e.g. thyme) and add a little black pepper.  Coat the fillets thoroughly with the rub and cook on the BBQ about 4 or 5 minutes per side.

      Travelling To Winnipeg
      I have a business trip to Winnipeg next week, staying at the Humphry Inn.  I found a great list of restaurants on the local Celiac Association website, but how about gluten-free beer?  Can anyone recommend bars (or restaurants) where I can get gluten-free beer?

    9. DougE added a post in a topic Small Toaster Recommendations   

      I see a lot of favourable comments for toaster bags.  I bought some once, but I found they were so large that there was extra bag on the sides of the toaster.  They even started to melt.  I thought, this looks like a fire hazard, but even if it isn't, I don't like the idea of plastic melting on my toast.  Was I doing something wrong?   I can't remember the brand, I think it was Toast-it.
      Anyway, I picked up a small inexpensive toaster at the supermarket and take it everywhere.

      Like many of the other replies, I will eat products that declare that they are made in a shared facitlity.  One exception is bakeries (I can just imagine flour hanging in the air everywhere).

      They must carry it at the Superstore on Braemar Drive in Dartmouth.  I was there today and saw a shelf label for it, although they did not have any in stock today.  I saw it at another Superstore but I can't remember which one, probably Portland Street or Young Street.

    14. DougE added a post in a topic Cider On Tap?   

      It is true that some ciders may have malt added.  There is a local micro-brewery near me that also makes cider.  They told me they add malt to give it body.  I suspect most ciders are gluten-free, but if it were me, I would ask.  BTW I know that Strongbow is gluten-free.

      What a great thread!  I have one for you...
      On a business trip, a number of us are sitting at the boardroom table discussing where to have dinner.  When a suggestion was made, I phoned the restaurant to see if I could eat there.
      Me - Do you have any gluten-free options?
      R - What is gluten?
      Me - Wheat, barley and rye.
      R - Hmmm.  Well you could probably have the flour tortillas.
      Me -  Flour tortillas!?   What kind of flour are they made from?
      R - Well, you know.  Regular flour.
      Me [loudly]   FLOUR IS WHEAT!!!!
      [peals of laughter around the boardroom table]
      R - oh. [as if she just had an epiphany]
