Well, it’s time to review some grilling boo boo’s that many of us make, or have made in the past.  The purpose is to improve our finished product (steak, chicken, pork, veggies, etc.) not to shun those that have committed grilling mistakes.  Perhaps you’re new to grilling and need some friendly pointers.  I mean, after all, many faux pas (another word for ‘boo boos’) are made just because we are new and excited to get started grilling.
