This is why I host the BBQs. Though, that can be dangerous too. I have to be super diligent about segregating any food that might show that is not safe. It all goes outside on a table, and all of the safe food goes inside. I also have to watch the condiments, salsas, and dips like a hawk. I tell people to bring gluten free, but I can’t always be 100% certain that my friends know what that means. This was proven by an unknown food item that made me sick at my own Christmas party.
Yes, you have to do the cooking – I have a mean BBQ rib recipe that is absolutely safe if anyone wants it
Yes, I’m a lot more relaxed at my own bbqs as no gluteny meat goes on the bbq at all. Just have to keep the bread separate and stop my toddler trying to drink from everyone elses cups. Got to love squeezy ketchup and mayo as less contamination issues.
I take a foil takeaway tray to friends bbqs (you can buy empty ones cheap at asian grocery stores) and either grill my food in their kitchen or put the foil tray on the bbq and use separate tongs (or watch like hawk while they use separate tongs). Not the most relaxing but at least then I don’t miss out on my fill of meat!
At the last one I went to my friend made a lovely rice salad for me and left off the dressing so I could check it first – very impressed!
