There are several reasons why a lot of people love grilled food. Notice that whenever a group of people are converged in the backyard during Sundays or for outdoor dinners, there will always be a good, old Dadgum Barbecue to serve. You can find grilled burgers, vegies, hotdogs and sausages, fish and other food items.
Less fat intake
The good thing about grilling food is that, fats drip and eliminated from the meat as compared to frying or cooking meat in a pan where excess oil has nowhere to go but back to the meat where it is absorbed.
Better retention of vitamins
The moment you grill a slice of meat, you actually lock in important nutrients found in meat such as thiamine and riboflavin. These nutrients are important in keeping a healthy diet.
Locks in more moisture
Another positive attribute of choosing Dadgum Barbecue for your dinner is that it retains moisture compared to frying or cooking food in high temperatures wherein its natural moisture is eliminated in the process of cooking. This way, you reduce the need to add oil or butter on your food making it even healthier for you and your family.
- Do not burn your food. According to Health.com, putting your food in high temperature and burning it can cause the release of heterocyclic amine (HCAs) and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). Both elements are known to be carcinogenic and hazardous to health.
- Marinate your food as it decreases the chance HCA formation. Aside from that, marinating your food enhances its flavour and makes the meat tenderer.
- Choose lean meat or cut any visible fat to prevent fat dripping which could result to flare-ups. These flare-ups can cause carcinogens to drip into the meat.
- To avoid flare-ups, spread a sheet of aluminium foil over the grill. Puncture some holes on the foil to allow fat from the meat to pass through it and drain.
- Clean your Dadgum Barbecue grill to remove charred food particles from previous grilling. This will lower the risk of developing cancer among lovers of grilled food.
