Mom Sends Warning After Her Child Was Rushed to the Hospital Due to a Metal BBQ Brush

Hot dogs and hamburgers and potato salad, yummy! Summertime means getting together with friends and family, and enjoy a delicious barbecue.

While we use our grill all year, there is something different about barbecuing in the summer… the smell of Greek souvlaki sizzling, fresh grilled vegetables, a juicy steak. I learned how to grill just a few years ago, and I think I’m becoming a master griller!

Burned or dry meat on the Q isn’t right for anyone to consume. It’s known that charred meat can increase the risk for cancer due to the chemicals formed when meat is grilled.  But did you ever think there could be another danger from the barbecue?
