Grilling Question

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

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?

    • Update: I have tried calling the company several times and have emailed twice. I have yet to talk to a person on the phone and no one has emailed me back.    I did a little research and they were are already involved with a class action lawsuit about being labeled as salt free and one of the first ingredients is sodium chloride.  I am done with this shampoo because this whole company seems a little shady now! 
    • I've actually been glutened by shampoo with hydrolyzed wheat protein, and I wasn't even the one using it. It was my husbands! I swear I don't go around eating my husbands hair.  I am pretty sensitive though, so it's entirely believable that the trace amounts in his hair were getting onto his and my hands and then making its way to my mouth, etc. etc.  It was a slow and steady low grade glutening that eventually built up to something that I was able to recognize as more definitively "a glutening". Once we ditched the shampoo and I recovered, I realized that I'd been feeling it for weeks.  It's going to depend on your level of sensitivity, but even if you don't feel it, it could still be doing damage. Also... I second that. Starch is a carbohydrate, protein is a protein (obviously), there is no simple process that would convert one into the other. Also, as gluten is a protein, converting starch to protein wouldn't be expected to do anything to gluten ANYWAY.  Speaking as a biologist here. I call poppycock. 
    • I just want you to remind you that I just had a repeat endoscopy last week after my diagnosis some five years ago.   Even though my antibodies are still elevated, my intestinal tract has healed.  But why have I been feeling sick?  I have chronic gastritis.  Who would have guessed?   I do not drink (rarely), take any meds other than my thyroid replacement, and do not have H. Pylori.  That leave autoimmune as the most likely culprit.  I also have some other minor issues that I think is related to Hashimoto’s.  So, I am in an autoimmune flare-up, but celiac disease is not the cause of current my woes. My endoscopy results have validated that I have been doing a good job about avoiding gluten.  I can relax a bit now!   I think because the treatment for celiac disease is a burden placed on us, it can become overwhelming.  Sure, we all eventually master the diet and most of us go on to lead plain old normal lives, but if something is off, celiac disease is the first thing that many of us blame.  Actually, we blame ourselves, to be honest.  We have to remember that we are often dealing with other health issues too.   As far as hair, I buy gluten free shampoo.  It is from Costco and it says it right on the label.  Nice and inexpensive.   Do I really need it to be gluten free?  No.  I think the last time I swallowed shampoo, my mother was most likely bathing me and I did not heed her warning to keep my mouth shut (baby shampoo may not sting your eyes but it tastes awful!).   Like you, sometimes I think it helps to have one less thing to think about and that can be priceless.           
    • https://www.twinings.co.uk/hot-chocolate-coffee-other-drinks/hot-chocolate-and-malt-drinks/twinings-swiss-chocolate-drink Have discovered this drink - it's great, labelled gluten free and is also fortified.   I can't drink too much milk as I get bloated, but find it tastes really nice even made mostly with hot water and just a small amount of milk.  Thank you Twinings.
    • Ennis_TX, thank you for your response! I will take heed of all your nutritional pieces of advice, one by one. And yes, I am aware that a gluten marathon is on the horizon soon.   Before doing the test, however, I shall try to fortify my diet with the nutrients you mentioned, and report back in a week or two.   I think adding some iron supplement is wise too.
