How To De-Gluten A Grill?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm not sure if this question is in the right section of this forum - sorry if it's not :).

 

It's finally grilling season where I live and I am wondering what is the best way to remove any trace amounts of gluten from a grill? My husband is mostly vegetarian, so he grilled a lot of Boca/Vegetarian gluten filled burgers on our grill last year before my diagnosis. I was lucky enough to get all new cookware/kitchen goods when I went gluten free, so I haven't had to worry about things like this until now.

 

We have one of the Infrared type grills, with narrow rows of grates that look like they could trap gluten. If I can really get the grill grates 100% clean of residual gluten, I can make sure it will be gluten free from now on. I was thinking I could also see about ordering brand new grates instead. What would you all suggest?

 

Thanks!

Can you put them in the oven and run the self clean cycle?  We just get new grill parts every year or so anyway.  Not sure if that would work for the type you have.

Hi kareng,

I think I will probably just bite the bullet and buy new grates. I'm sure there is a way to get them clean, but will they ever be clean enough in my mind, if you know what I mean :). I will just have to make sure my husband only grills meats and veggies on the new grates.

Hello everyone!

 

I would still technically be undiagnosed, but this question did pop up in my head this week too.

 

 

At my work we have a full kitchen, and the chef has been really understanding of what I've been goin through.  A couple days ago he slapped on a steak with just salt and pepper for me to eat, and a couple hours later I had the gnawing kinda heartburn feeling down in my guts.   Within a couple days (and bathroom breaks)  that has since dissipated.

 

So even with no dressings of any kind, a plain piece of meat can cause that kind of reaction because of the grill its on?!?!?!

 

 

Wow,  this is way harder than expected, ugh!  Yea I've practically been stuck to cooking at home, which I am no chef, so it has been a slow learning curve in terms of flavorings for meat.....

It is way harder than it seems to be gluten free. Once you get past all of the obvious things, there are all of the cross-contamination issues to watch out for. It's great that the chef at work is willing to try to help you. If they use a flat surface type grill at work, it might help to put down some heavy duty aluminum foil before putting your meat on the grill. He could just turn up the edges of the foil a bit and also make sure it doesn't tear. I think I read that someone else here has their own designated pan at work that the chef uses. That gnawing heartburn feeling you described was one of my symptoms and drove me nuts! I hope you feel better soon.

I agree that I would worry with any solution other than replacing the grates entirely. And goodness knows we don't need a nocebo effect making us think we got glutened if we haven't.

I have had very violent reaction symptoms from chicken grilled on a contaminated grill in the past.  After my first cross contamination from a grill, the grill grate at my home was soaked in a tub with very hot soapy water and scrubbed well.  It does take some elbow grease but we didn't have the money to replace the grates.  I haven't had any reactions from it since then.

    • You should get the lymph nodes checked. You need to be eating a regular gluten containing diet to get the best & most accurate results for celiac disease.
    • try ragu double cheddar sauce
    • Hi everyone, This is my first post. I am happy to find a forum for being shared and being answered. I am really despressed with my all symptoms and got confused with tons of information from google :((. Sorry if my story below is long and spend your time. I just want to be shared my worries. Thanks I experienced some symptoms such as abdomen pains, diarrhea, fatigue, one side heachade and enlarged lymph nodes. These things are appeared more frequently after I gave birth to my baby 2 years ago. Recently, it becomes quite bad. I have met some family doctors, they did not concern anything until the recent one. She said that I should try gluten free for 1 month, diary free for 2 weeks, then returned. But I still do not do any tests for comfirming except for CBC test and ultra sound for lymph nodes. All results were normal, except for one indicator in blood test a little low (mchc). The doctor said that she had no concern. I have travelled a lot, so it was hard to eliminate gluten totally. I have had some accidentally gluten eating, so I still feel sick, especially abdomen pain and lymph nodes. I am now in strictly diet for 1.5 weeks and feel quite better, except for the lymph nodes. After 2 months, I finally can return doctor office for more discuss, though I am very worried. To talk about the lymph nodes, I have one in gland for 1 year, not movable; another in neck for about 4-5 months, movable. They are in size of a bean. Are they too big? They seem not enlarge or down size from the day I felt them. Recently, I am very scared to find that there are 2 or 3 on going in the lower neck and groin area. They are at the size of peas. And no one is bad pain, just a little discomfortable. Oh my god, I hope you guys can share my feeling... just some days you wake up and find out that some new lumps growing up in your body. That's a terrible feeling. Has anyone experienced the enlarged lymph nodes? Before or after going gluten free diet. Could the diet help to reduce their size or they will still there. I read about the link between celiac and lymphoma. I am really really scared. My daughter, she is just 2. I will have doctor appointment next week, beside the tests to comfirm celiac, should I ask her to check the lymph nodes again also. Any one got celiac and lymphoma at the same time? Please share your experience. Thank you.
    • For the people that been  diagnosed with celiac diseased and med board, when you got out of the army did you get and disability I've been in the army for 6 years and this has been my family's income for the 6 years, so what assistants have you guys been given???
    • That isn't entirely correct.  the gluten-free list is the stuff that they know is & test to be gluten-free and not made with gluten products.  The other list is no gluten ingredients but not tested .  Read the link for the explanation
