I consider myself a good cook. I haven't killed anyone yet. However, here is an example of what not to do: Don't drink and grill. It was a hot summer day, perfect for ice cold beer and steaks on the barbie. By the time dinner rolled around we were all pretty snockered. When grilling you need your wits about you. My friend Tom was running the grill. We were all hungry. Tom decided to share his brew with the steaks. There was so much beer on the meat we had a hard time putting the fire out. However the spuds were hardly cooked at all. Charbroiled and almost cremated steaks and raw taters-Yum! Not!
Starving and drunk we still needed dinner so my neighbor Bill took pity and got us some Big Macs. Never has McDonalds tasted so good.
