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).
