Dinner Tonight Grilling

Please click on the above link to view a video demonstration of food safety tips as it relates to grilling.

Cook foods to a safe internal temperature so harmful germs are killed. Beef as shown in this video, should reach an internal temperature of 145°F and hamburgers that are made from ground beef should reach 160°F in order to be eaten safely.
Some research suggests that eating large amounts of charred foods can increase one’s risk of developing some forms of cancer. Tips to avoid eating charred food:
√Make sure to remove visible fat before grilling

√Never add extra starter fluid while food is on the grill

√Cut and throw away charred portions off of cooked foods

√Try not to use marinades that have large amounts of fat (butter, margarine, or vegetable oil)

√If grilling fish or vegetables, wrap them in aluminum foil before placing on the grill.

√Microwave food just before grilling. This can release some of the juices which can drip on the coals and cause flames.
