Or are they talking about it you stuck the wood chips in a pipe and smoked em, you could get cancer (DUH)...i know all about burnt meat has carsonagenics (spelling) that could cause cancer and all that...so is this a real risk or just another "if you stick your head in this plastic bag-you could die" warning?
Don't use them in California then :biggrin:

Actually, I've seen that on other BBQ related stuff like briquettes or gas grills. I think it's more like '<Grilling in general> is known to the state of California to produce carcinogens ...'.

It's just another decision you have to make. I chose not to worry about it. I qrill or make BBQ as often as I want (can).

I hate to inform youall that I will be dead soon. Yep, I must admit I've used those Jack Daniel chips, and used to smoke heavily with them. Hell I even drank all that stuff they keep in those barrels to flavor them with. And I drank a lot of that stuff. It must be really posionous. :lmao: :lmao:

Almost every thing that burns produce carcinogens. Your charcoal, your wood, the fat dripping on the hot metal inside your pit.
Face it... We're all doomed! [-o<

At least we will die young, fat and happy! \/ and not linger on forever in some nursing home eating mush.
