Grilling Question
0

8 posts in this topic

This is a really stupid question but my mom and I are grilling hamburgers tonight and mine can't be grilled on the actual grill grates due to non gluten free things being made on the grill. I know the grill can be cleaned by getting it to a certain temperature for a certain amout of time but I don't want to do that tonight and I've read that you can grill it on tin foil. My question is this: Do you just put the foil on the grill and put the burger on top of it or does the burger need to be wrapped in the foil or do we need to sit it on the foil and raise the sides to make like a little boat thing? (Clearly I'm not an experienced griller lol)

If anyone could tell me the best way to do this or if this is even safe to do that would be great! thanks!

FYI,

The safest way is to wrap a burger in foil and cook it like that. You can cover the grill plate and poke holes but then you have to still worry about CC from the rest of the grill.

BTW burgers in foil come out looking like grey hockey pucks, they basically steep in the foil packet, sorry. Watch them closely, don't overcook them.

good luck

I would personally not close the tinfoil because if completely covered by tinfoil they will steam but as the burgers contain fait I would definitely make a little boat around them. If you have a cast iron frying pan you can use that on the grill, too. That way you will get the lovely sizzle and they will brown nicely.

You can also buy aluminum foil grilling trays at the supermarket.

You can totally enclose them in foil but they taste better with some BBQ sauce in the packet. See foil dinner suggestions in my link.

Also, what Doug said. You can also get a piece of metal to cook fish on that sits on the grill. That might work, too.

Replacement grates don't cost all that much. I'd just get a new one and never let anyone cook a gluten product on it.

Exactly what I was just thinking. That is what we did, actually, and no gluten product has ever touched it. No worries about CC.

Or use Easy-Off Grill Cleaner on the grates (found in the section with the oven cleaners). Wal-Mart carries it. Heck, why wouldn't regular oven cleaner work just as well?

    • puffiness in face
      The puffiness in my face went down a lot after I went gluten free. Old photos shock me sometimes now! Your doctor should be able to test you for food intolerance? Here in UK I did tests for wheat, nut, mustard etc. You can do a blood test and there's also skin prick tests I think, am sure others here would know more.  Good luck    
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      Here in the UK I can't eat Lay's owned Walkers crisps as even the ones without gluten ingredients can cause a reaction. I read it was something to do with their production processes. Looks like others have same problems too:  
    • Newly diagnosed and totally overwhelmed
      Don't apologise! Not needed here at least where people know exactly what you're going through. As Cyclinglady says, you're now in a grieving process for the former, carefree attitude to food you've now lost. You may find this helpful in understanding the psychological journey you're on: http://psychcentral.com/lib/the-5-stages-of-loss-and-grief/ It WILL get better. Eating cleanly is very good advice as you heal but you can then find the replacement snacks and treats that are safe to eat.  I now know which chocolate bars are ok, which brands of crisps (chips) are safe etc.  I don't drink now, but I did find there were some fantastic ciders that I could tolerate and you've always got wine! In fact one of the weirder discoveries post gluten was that my past (vicious) hangovers were far more about gluten reactions than the alcohol itself. A cider hangover is a breeze in comparison All the best!  
    • glutened by lays potato chips?
      I ate some baked lays last night and felt very sick all night and haven't been feeling great all day today. Other than that I didn't eat anything different from what I normally eat and there was no risk of cross contamination with anything.. These were the only thing I had that was different. They're labeled gluten free so I figured it would be okay, but I started feeling sick pretty soon after eating them. I'm not sure if it's another ingredient in them or what (and i know it's not the soy).. Has anyone else had a reaction to lays potato chips?
    • Symptoms In Toddlers?
      Welcome Ashley! Here are the current tests.  The DGP versions seem to work a bit better than the TTG in small children.  So, ask for the complete panel (and get it all in one stick....my 15 year still hates to get blood drawn ! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ Your doctors are wrong!  They must be reading old medical text books.  Not all kids or people have failure to thrive!  You can even be symptom free!. I was anemic and had no intestinal issues when I was diagnosed.  celiac disease affects everyone differently and that's probably why so many folks are not diagnosed. Your kids (parents, siblings too) should be tested every few years (sooner if symptoms develop) per all the leading celiac researchers/doctors if a first-degree relative has celiac disease (like you!)  celiac disease can develop at any age! Hope this helps!

      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.
