Don't be afraid to use the words "healthy" and "barbecue" together. In fact, grilling and barbecuing may be two of the oldest forms of healthy cooking out there. How do you think cavemen kept trim?

You don't need a lot of fat to experience a ton of flavor. Use replacements, like wood smoke or spices, to get the full taste of what barbecue can offer.

I should definitely work on grilling more vegetables. I've had mostly good luck with the ones I've already tried and should expand my horizons a bit.

However, I'm not quite so sure about this "cut back on the butter" thing... :lol:

Try cutting back on some of the butter and subbing in a decent olive oil in it's place.

Depending on the recipe I'll use 75% olive oil to butter.

In addition, an oil mister is a great tool to have in your arsenal. Used properly, they use less oil to coat a surface than drizzling or brushing so that's a savings in fat as well.
Unlike propane, you'll never wake up scorched and naked in another county because you mishandled a bag of briquettes.
