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 :)

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.

    • I believe the talk around this forum is that cheerios are not gluten free enough for people with celiac at this time. I don't know if anything has changed on that and when their lawyer calls me I'll quickly delete this. haha  
    • Could be we generally say get off of dairy for a few months when going gluten free. The part of the intestines that produce the enzymes, and help break down dairy are associated with the tips of the villi, which are the most damaged if not gone in celiacs. THIS is why most of us end up with a lactose intolerance early on. And most can introduce it later after healing. As to her symptoms with it there was a bunch of research about dairy permeated the gut and causing neurological issues in a autism study I was looking at years ago. And there have been other studies about damaged intestines and how the hormones in milk can easier effect ones body.   Personally I also have a huge grudge against dairy on a personal level as it is not natural to suck on a cows tits and drink the stuff, nor your dogs, nor a rabbits......I mean come on even Human Breast milk you would find odd to drink as an adult right? Back in the past dairy was a great way to get calories and fats when there was famine, etc around I mean it is meant to make a calf grow into a 500+lb cow. But on a genetic and hormonal level it is not really for human consumption and now days the whole corporate BS propaganda push and dairy farms shove that oh its healthy stuff down your throat. There are plenty of dairy free options for everything feel free to message me if you need help finding anything I have been dairy free for over a decade.
    • The full celiac panel checks TTG IGA and IGG, DGP IGA and IGG, IGA, EMA as Jmg stated above. Your test included TTG IGA and IGA. If your IGA was low, a low on TTG IGA would be inconclusive. But your IGA is fine. A high on any one test is a positive for celiac and should lead to an endoscopy for confirmation. So I'd get tested for TTG IGG, DGP IGA and IGG and EMA since there are symptoms. Warning I'm not a doc.    
    • I did a gluten challenge for my endoscopy and requested a second blood test after my follow up with the consultant. I never did see those results but my GP said no celiac was indicated:  Which left me gluten free for life, that wasn't an option after the challenge, but with a less satisfactory diagnosis, one by omission rather than the definitive 'you're celiac' one I was expecting. Yes! I have been 'properly' glutened on a couple of occasions but on several more I've detected a change or a reaction based on what could only have been trace amounts. NCGS is as yet poorly understood but patients tend to have more neuro symptoms than digestive. That's definitely been my experience, although it was only after going gluten free that I realised quite how many digestive symptoms I had just been living with as 'normal'. Close friends and family get the full explanation. 'I have an auto immune disease similar to 'coeliac etc.' If they stay awake long enough I'll tell them about the less than perfect testing process I went through or the Columbia Med research and the possibility of a blood test soon.  They can see the difference between me on gluten and off it so they understand its not all in my head* If I'm ordering food in a restauarant or asking questions about food prep etc I will often just self declare as coeliac - people are aware of that and understand those requests are medical rather than fad diet based. I don't have any problem doing this, I'm not going to claim that and then cheat on dessert for instance and to be honest I expect once the research is complete the two conditions may wind up alongside others as different faces of the same coin.   In the meantime I safeguard my health and avoid getting into a detailed conversation about genuine gluten sensitivity versus faux hipster posturing!       *apart from the bits which are in my head  
    • I originally had it on my face and scalp. (22 years ago)  First biopsy with dermatologist came back as folliculitis.  Then when I had a new outbreak on my upper back, she was able to remove a nice clean blister and we got the diagnosis of DH.  She started me on Dapsone (100mg/day) and gluten free diet.  Now I take 25-50 mg/day.  My understanding at the time was that DH was the skin version of Celiac.  Did a lot of research on my own.  I met Dr. Peter Green at a Gluten free Vendors Fair and he said that a diagnosis of DH  IS a diagnosis of Celiac, even if no other symptoms.    So I stay gluten-free
