How can I make healthy barbeque dishes?

The following are healthy options for a barbeque:

  • "Prime" cuts usually have more fat than "choice" or "select."
  • Look for ground beef with the lowest percentage of fat on the label.
  • Grill lean turkey dogs, chicken sausages, buffalo burgers or veggie burgers in place of full-fat options.
  • Instead of sautéed onions, put onions on the grill for great smoky flavor
