Grilling outdoors is one of the most enjoyable events of the summer. The potential of acquiring a foodborne illness to your party does not seem fun. Grilling can be a healthy and low-fat way to cook, but there are a few rules to follow to stay safe and prepare healthy meals, reports Extension Educator Brenda Aufdenkamp.

 

We all experienced that great grilling smell coming from somewhere down the block that makes us wish we were grilling. Direct heat grilling can expose food to temperatures in-excess of 500 degrees Fahrenheit. Grilled meat acquires the distinctive smoky flavor from a chemical process called the Maillard reaction which only occurs when food reaches temperatures of 310 degrees.
