I live in an area where it is common practice to cook with beer. They usually steam the chicken in beer, use beer as a marinade, etc. My husband likes to pour beer on the meat as he barbecues it. Last weekend I refused to eat it and it did cause a bit of a stir but I will not do anything to intentionally make myself ill!
Any ideas or suggestions for an alternative? Can steaming be a problem if you use a double boiler?

Steaming, as long as you're extremely strict about never letting your food touch the liquid, might be okay, but it's risky. But no other cooking method should be used, unless you can find a gluten-free beer. The protiens that cannot be tolerated by celiac cannot be cooked out of foods, so cooking in or marinating in beer will still make you sick.

There is a thread here about gluten-free beers, maybe use those instead just to be extra safe

That would be a good compromise. I will have to see where I can get some. Thanks for the replies :)
