If you grill over charcoal it is recommended that you eat a baked potato (Microwave) skin and all to counter the carcinogens caused by the smoke (true with all smoked meat). Our ancestors should have died in their 30s from all that smoked meat they ate (no refrigeration, electricity, etc.). The smokehouse was a mainstay and an important way to preserve meat. Most of my ancestors lived into their late 80s or late 90s. One Great Grand Aunt lived to be 118 years old. Who knows maybe they didnít eat the meat or maybe they ate the meat and baked potato, skin and all? Could be why they were called Meat & Potato Men.
