Preventing Food Poisoning

Making sure your food is safe is really important at a BBQ. In order to prevent foodborne illnesses, the U.S. Department of Agriculture wants you to clean utensils and surfaces, cook to the proper temperature, separate raw meat from cooked meat and chill leftover food or meat that has yet to be cooked.
