Need A Recommended Sub For Beer Can Chicken.

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. <_<

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.

    • This - I agree with all of this. I have also twigged that if oats are a problem then certified processed gluten free food is out. And I got really sick from drywall. It's such a relief to hear this as there was a time when I was feeling like an alien for thinking these things. Well I agree 99.9%. I had a skin problem, possibly DH, which got better when I gave up gluten, improved further when I gave up processed foods but it wasn't until I stopped eating dry beans that I stopped getting any flares. I am also sensitive to egg though (although that does something different to my skin) so I'm a bit a skin-reactive person. Could be worth cutting it out just to see if that helps?
    • Hi Celiac4762, The carbs I eat are sweet potato, parsnip and squash plus loads of fruit. With rice I'm ok if it's from a reputable source. Once I get glutened I steer clear of it for a month to give myself an extra break and then go back to it in smallish quantities. I have carbs once a day rather than every meal to save time. I can hear in your tone this tired, fed up tone that I recognise so well from when I get glutened. I know what it's like to dream of living in a far away gluten free bubble. I felt like that but after a couple of months (which were a hard adjustment) I got to a stage of knowing what I needed to do. Your medical background will help you methodically work out what you need to cut out and what is safe and you will get there. Stick with college. Don't let this crappy stage take that away.   The thing that saved me though over everything was finding this article: https://bmcgastroenterol.biomedcentral.com/articles/10.1186/1471-230X-13-40
    • Thanks to both of you. Ok, so I was feeling not great and went grain free for 5 weeks. Then slowly started to introduce grains. All seemed ok, then I had an issue after 3 weeks, with blood in my stool. Celiac wasn't on my radar. In fact, rice and oats are what seem to bother me most. But the Dr added on the celiac test and it was indeterminate. So I was sent for endoscopy and colonoscopy. I consumed gluten for just over two weeks, then went back to my grain free, dairy free diet. I saw my Dr this am and she said my bowels were healthy, that the Dr had taken 'several' samples and that all is well on both ends.  (No celiac, but also not H Pylori, crohn's, etc). She is running all kinds of other bloodwork, because I am still feeling terrible, and obviously the assumption I had made was that it was celiac. I'm going to stay off gluten for now, in hopes that I'll start to feel better. My GI symptoms are worse this week than they have been in ages...so something is up, but apparently I'm healthy??! I am pretty sure my Dr. would not refer me to another GI. She's not the best, but it's very hard to find another Dr. here, especially if you already have a Dr. (Canada) I am going to ask her for a copy of the report though, as well as the rest of the bloodwork she's sending me for. 
    • This is exactly what I'm wondering also.
    • I'm confused. You don't have celiac? Have you had a blood test or biopsy? Have you been diagnosed with DH?  What were you diagnosed with 9 years ago? If it was celiac or DH why have you only been gluten-free for 6 months? We need a better picture of what's going on here to help you more successfully.
