Who doesn’t love a good barbecue? They say grilling is better than frying because grilled foods have lower calorie content than fried foods. There's something about grilling that just makes food look and taste fantastic. Though  research has shown that grilling meats at  high temperatures can release harmful chemicals into the air and our bodies with cancer-causing properties. The most important technique on grilling is to know how to control the cooking temperature. 
 
One of the health benefits of eating barbecue is meat have a reduced fat content. You are eating less fat because the excess drips off the grates as the food cooks. The result is healthier meals for your family and makes it easier to manage a low fat diet. Grilling your food helps reduce the risk of obesity, stroke, heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes. Since grilling has shorter cooking time involved, this ensures that as much of the nutritional content is retained in the food when cooked.
 
A lot of meats traditionally served at barbecues like beef, lamb and sausages, have been shown to increase the risk of some types of cancer. Grilling is one of the lightest ways to cook, but to keep it that way, you should keep it clean and always select leaner cuts to prevent dripping fat from causing flare-ups, which may deposit carcinogens on the meat.
