Actually (yes, I know that I'm splitting hairs here, but for educational sake) the "char" flavor from any grilled foods comes not from the charing of the food, but rather from the smoke particles deposited on the food. The smoke, of course, comes from the fat that burns on the heat source, be it flaming charcoal, or flavorizing bars on a gas grill. Create a different smoke, say from mesquite, and you have a different smoke flavor.

My only problem with BK is that everything smells and tastes like their deep fat fryers. I don't know why McD's doesn't have that problem.

I'll stick with my double cheeseburger and small fries.

Having them now and then won't kill me.

You should go for the Happy Meal. Then, you'd get a TOY too!

Not so! You could get iced tea or lemonade instead. I think they'll even substitue 1% milk with a Happy Meal.

Ya know... I might have to ask next time.

Although to be honest, I tend to like getting away with a $2.00 order at Mickey Dee's...
