“When preparing barbecue, the distance between the coals and the meat should be approximately 30 centimeters: this is necessary to prevent direct contact of the product with the flame. Eating meat with a dark burnt crust is harmful to health.”

It is better to prepare the marinade for meat yourself, using natural ingredients in the form of lemon juice and other sour juices from berries or fruits, natural low-fat yogurt, sparkling water, tomato puree.
