Need A Recommended Sub For Beer Can Chicken.
0

10 posts in this topic

I realized that I shouldn't be eating one of my favorite things...Beer Can Chicken. For those who aren't familiar with it you take a chicken and prop it over a can of beer that's only 1/3 full, season the outside of the bird well, and grill for about 1-2 hrs. The can of beer heats from the coals and steams the bird from the inside.

Since I'm not a beer drinker, nor every have been, this is the only time I use beer. I've made the chicken with a sub of ginger ale and other sodas but the taste is just not there.

Is there a gluten-free beer that is readily available in most parts of the country or would "near beer" work? I don't know if "near beer" is gluten-free or not. Anyone know? It certainly would be a good sub if it's safe.

Thanks,

Kandee

I know that there are gluten-free beers out there but don't know the names. You might try making this using a white wine, maybe a marsala. Just pour it into a can and cook according to your recipe. It won't exactly be beer chicken, but it should still be pretty tastey!

Catfish-

Thanks for your suggestion. The wine trick may work.....looking at the list, Brandy or Champagne may make for some interesting flavors too.

Kaiti-

Thanks for linking the list. I'd forgotten we had one. Eww, you are so pretty. Bet your pale blue scarf and hat matches you eyes(?).

Somewhere out there I bet there is a gluten-free beer you can mail order in, but haven't found it yet. <_<

Kandee-aww thanks that was so sweet :) yes it does match my eyes just not on that pic I got red eyes from the flash of the camera... My eyes change colors though with seasons :lol:

Hope you find something that will work right for your chicken :)

Talk to you soon :D

Kaiti, I figured your eyes were a pretty blue!! Since they change they likely pick up what ever color you're wearing...lucky you!!!

Found a gluten-free beer through my Celiac support rep... but it is expensive, like $60 a case..ug.

Still wondering if there is a fake beer out there that would suffice.

Personally, I would not stick a $60/case beer up a chicken. What you're trying to get is that malty flavor. This is pretty much impossible without beer. Near beer is also made with barley and is not gluten-free. Using wine only can be too much of a good thing. I suggest this: 2 parts chicken broth, 1 part wine like sherry or a light colored port, 1/2 part pepper sauce (like Louisiana sauce, Tobasco is too hot), 1/4 gluten-free soy sauce. This should do the trick. You can also try hard cider, which I like to put in the pan when I roast chicken.

I've tried the "beer can chicken" with soda. And I was so surprised that it tasted really well. I used Coke or Pepsi. I actually got the idea from friends that were non celiacs. Hope it works for you as well. :rolleyes:

kvogt,

OMG, Your idea is awesome, sounds yummy and worth the try...do you have a sub for the soy sauce? (soy intolerant here)...

As it is, when I was using beer I always threw some of the dry rub seasoning that went on the outside of the chicken, both in the cavity and in the beer.

You're so right, what I'm after is the malty taste. Soda just doesn't cut it for me. I even used an organic ginger ale and it was blah.

LMBO, YES, a chicken's posterior is not worth a $60 beer.

Thanks, Kandee

The guys with the beer are Kevin Seplowitz and Craig Belser. Their website is www.bardsbeer.com. You can contact them there

I asked my Sorghum flour supplier about a beer I could carry in my restaurant. Here is his reply.

    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Hi Kam, If you are going to continue the celiac testing with an endoscopy, you need to keep eating gluten until it's done. It can be hard for vegetarians to keep their vitamin D levels up.   This Vitamin D  Council link has some good info on ways to boost your levels. https://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/
    • Blood results - odd
      Your ferritin was very low!  My result was a 2 when I was diagnosed.    I hard a hard time breathing and the fatigue was awful due to low hemoglobin levels.  But after going gluten free and taking iron for a few months, I quickly recovered from iron-deficiency anemia.  I still have hemologobin levels that are slightly below range due to Thalassemia which is genetic and my body has adjusted for it.   My B12 and folate levels are  super high.  My B12 is over 2000!  Yeah, I googled and ruled out cancers, etc.  Looks like some of us do not process man-made B12 often included in supplements.  I opted for natural sources of B-12 and folate and my levels have come down a bit.   Let us know your results.  Read the Newbie 101 section under "Coping" within this forum for tips.   Be patient.  It can take months, to years to feel good.  But it will happen!    
    • How do you know what's causing what?
      Welcome to the forum!   Well.....in theory you should be able to heal within a few months (grow new villi, etc.).  The reality is that it takes so much longer -- like a year or two (I kid you not!)  Why?  celiac disease can damage more than just the gut.  Depending on what was damaged (nerves, bones, etc) can impact healing time.  The gluten-free diet has a very steep learning curve.  It's not just giving up gluten.  It's avoiding cross contamination.  Becoming an expert in reading labels.  Learning to avoid foods processed on shared lines in a facility.  Then there are intolerances that most celiacs develop.  The most common ones is lactose.  Why?  The villi tips release the enzymes to digest lactose.  No villi tips?  Then you can not digest lactose.  Often this is temporary, but if you are one of the many adults in this world, you might already be lactose intolerant or might become so as you age.   Other intolerances that members often report include corn or soy.   Some celiacs react to oats, even gluten free.  So avoid oats for six months.  So, try cutting out dairy for a few days and see how you feel.  Then add in those items that have the least lactose:  hard cheese, butter, yogurt and see how you feel.   Avoid eating out for six months until you have seen some improvement.   Read our Newbie 101 thread under coping for more ideas!  Hope you feel better soon.   
    • Recovery diet, nutrition, leaky gut?
      I am having my endoscopy on Tuesday. I want to begin to heal my gut asap. I spent this morning in the ER with stabbing pain in my right shoulder blade, pain to the left of my belly button and vomiting. It's referred pain from my small intestine. I couldn't move or breathe hardly it hurt so bad. I NEED to get everything together to heal my gut asap. I don't want to ever go through this again. What are your recommendations? I've been reading a bit on leaky gut - anyone have good experience/links Or would the autoimmune diet be better? Are they one in the same? I know I am also reacting to casein and possibly potatoes.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
