LOL, if you believe everything they tell you can cause cancer, then you better start learning to live without breathing, because it can cause cancer.

I expected that reaction. There is a long history of this carcinogenic link with smoked meat but I understand the resistance to it....I don't want to believe it either. However, the evidence has not been disputed yet.....

My apologies, but there is a typo in the OP. I meant to say Co-Workers. There were five families I cooked for.

Presentation is excellent. I'll bet it tastes even better than it looks!

Hey, don't feel like the Lone Ranger, Creative. I've lived in the USA my whole life and I had no idea what an ABT or Fatties were either!

Wasn't directed at you, just a personal observance I see on a bunch of "Q" sites.

I have a bag of blueberries in the freezer. The Pirate loves blueberry pancakes. So he called Poo (who lives in Vermont) and asked him to pick up some real maple syrup for him. That was in the middle of last month. He finally showed up this past Saturday with the syrup. According to The Pirate, they would find that blueberry pancakes would cause cancer before he got that syrup. And if that happens, he is willing to forgo the pancakes and just drink the syrup.

I thought it was charred/grilled meats and vegetables?

If this is true, there are lot of people in this world who will die with a smile on their face. If you look at the study, they fed burnt food to rats at a rate, you have to eat about ton of food in one sitting, to suffer the same way.
