I’ll let the people decide what they think is good taste.

I’m not a fan of grilling meat, since that tends to dry it out, and I find grill marks leave a bitter taste.

It ends up a dark chocolate color and stays very juicy.

The thing we call critics are not really reviewers, they are not really critics. They don’t have the discipline to write what we would term as critique – it’s really just reviewers.
