Thanks for the useful tips, I’m a big fan of outdoor and bbq. I didn’t know anything about heterocyclic amines, that’s little scary but it won’t hold me back enjoying my summer bbq, the foil idea is a good one. Thanks again

I receive your new posts in my email. Whenever there is information that I know I’ll want to refer back to later in my work, I save the email. Right now there are six posts from you in my email folder. A very quick look and I can come up with one concrete example, I used your post about confidence levels and margin of error in surveys just the other day in estimating a sample size that I will need for an upcoming survey. Thanks.

Fuel is also very dangerous charcoal for grilling meat when it is too often used

So this is how smart people get the grill action going? Wonderful article, Patrick. I personally love grilled veggies, find it weird that people look at me funny when I asked to have them dipped and grilled too at hotels (happened to me no less than an hour ago).

All that aside, perhaps it would have been wise if you added a recommendation for maximum amount of red meat someone should consume in a week.

Regards,
Dr. Alex

Dr. Alex —

I don’t think anyone really knows “the maximum amount of red meat someone should consume in a week.” What I’ve been reading suggests that the type of meat (relatively unprocessed, like steak or pot roast, versus processed, like sausage, bacon, deli meats, etc.) may be more important. See this article from Dariush Mozaffarian and colleagues at the Harvard School of Public Health: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23701737.

This is great. Everyone likes to grill, so if you can do it without adding on the pounds, what could be better. And the weather is great too – happy times. Thanks for sharing

I never knew about marinating until I read this content. It was a great idea.

Great tips, I wasn’t aware that marinating helps to prevent carcinogen growth! Makes sense though when you think about it… 🙂

I agree with marinating. I also marinate when I broil meats in the oven and I routinely use oil and vinegar style salad dressings as marinades (e.g. roasted red pepper, sun dried tomato, etc.). They are yummy.

I always love to drench my ingredients with lots of oil so that the oil drips down and glistens the skin of the big round juicy breasts that I grill.
