Hmm foil on stoves, or at resturants is one thing... but on a barbaque at home? No thanks, most of the reas to cook that way is for the falvor that the cooking method gives, and the foil basicly means go inside and fry it. IMO. Mine will just stay gluten-free, and if someone doesnt like it, they can bring thier own. :D

Does Anna Lee or Columbia Presbyterian have a website.  If so, what is it? 



Did you mean Columbia University?


Anne Roland Lee,

Her research project studied the effects of a gluten-free diet on the quality of life of celiac patients. She was recognized for outstanding research with acceptance into the Sigma Xi, The Scientific Research Society, the Sigma Xi Honor Society and The Shirley Schecter Memorial Award in the field of Family and Consumer Sciences. Her research was also accepted for The Poster Session at the lOth International Congress on Celiac Disease in May 2002. In addition to her work at the Celiac Disease Center, Anne is an Adjunct Professor at Westchester Community College and the Nutrition Advisor for the Westchester Celiac Sprue Support Group. In the fall she will also be Adjunct Professor at Queens College.

Diagnosed with Celiac March, 2005: Positive endoscopy, blood tests and biopsy. Gluten free since March 2005.

Retested Jan. 2006: Negative blood tests: "Results do not support a diagnosis of celiac disease. Serological markers for celiac disease were not detected."

Results for 2006 endoscope/biopsy pending.

Kingsford has wheat? Here I have been eating bbq every weekend, without a single thought! I had no symptoms, either. My husband uses foil all the time on the grill, though, so it probably protected me. For once, one of his paranoias turned out to be something good!! :lol:

You are lucky to have a paranoid husband ;) I wish *my* family was paranoid! That would certainly make my life easier!

I BBQ on foil with Sweet Baby Ray's and believe me, it doesn't lose the BBQ taste.

My hubby is SUPER picky about his BBQ food and he loves it, although skeptical at first.

The meat even still has the lines of the grill on it when you use foil.

I've had BBQ all my life pre Celiac and I have noticed NO difference in taste at all by using foil. Neither has my picky hubby.

I would go out and buy a new BBQ but I don't feel like spending the money right now..maybe in the future.
