Smokey Bones' Gluten Free Menu

Vince and I went to Smokey Bones this evening for the first time since going gluten free. We've gone occasionally in the past, usually when I decide to throw caution to the wind and eat horrible for a meal.

I had heard they had a gluten free menu though nothing was posted on their website. However, I called before we left the apartment and verified that they did indeed have a gluten free menu. We got there a little after 7:30 and got seated within ten minutes. While watching Joba pitch, we dined on delicious hand pulled pork, tender baby back ribs, mashed potatoes and their amazing cinnamon apples.

Here's the gluten free menu we received tonight:

Guests often contact us regarding what is safe for them to eat at Smokey Bones in regards to Gluten Sensitivies (or Celiac Disease/Celiac Sprue). Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley and rye.

The items have been reviewed by an independent registered dietician and determined generally to be suitable for consumption by the Gluten intolerant, based upon the 2000 American Dietetic Association guidelines and menu samples provided by Smokey Bones.

While Smokey Bones has made an effort to provide complete and current gluten content information, changes in recipes, and the handcrafted nature of our menu items mean that variations in the ingredient profile of a particular menu item may occur from time to time. Therefore, we make no guarantees regarding the gluten content of any of these items.

Menu items should be ordered with recommended sides only with NO BREAD.

We just got home from Smokey Bones here in Dayton, OH. I didn't have the chance to look up their GF menu before we went, so I was worried about having chosen the right meal until I saw this post. Thank you! Now I can rest easy that I won't be sick this weekend. The Pulled Pork and BBQ Chicken Combo with cole slaw and baked potato were SO delicious! It was my first restaurant meal since being diagnosed in June, and I really enjoyed it.

I am confused because I called the Smokey Bones here in Toledo, OH and the manager told me that none of the barbecue sauces are gluten free.
