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.

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If you don't have celiac, I assume you have Non-celiac gluten Intolerance because no one would stick to the gluten-free diet for six years unless you have had reductions in symptoms.  There is no test for NCGI unfortunately.  So, it is hard to say if gluten has been sneaking into your diet.  You really are going to have to try to figure out if you are getting gluten into your diet.  If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.  I am not sure about NCGI.  Not much research has been done.  Maybe others can chime in?    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
