My son has reminded me that burning meat on the grill causes one to consume carcinogens.
Is there any hope for the cave man in me (or is it the latent Aussie?)
Yes, beer can come to the rescue, if I understand the science of all this. The Economist in this video explains (with a drooling tongue in cheek?) how marinating the steaks in beer can overcome some of the evil. Black beer does better than pilaster. I assume they use organic beer: the plethora of chemicals in many mass produced commercial beers might add some more carcinogens.
Grill it with Guinness?
