So the grilling/BBQ season is wrapping up for most home cooks around here this month and I was wondering if anyone had any thoughts on this subject. I've been to several grilled events at friends and families' homes and noticed a lot of people will use a pair of tongs to grab raw meats out of a bag/container and then transfer to a grill, and then just stand there with the tongs outside of any heat and then use them to plate the cooked food. It kind of grosses me out and I'm under the impression that the time spent flipping or moving any meat is not really enough to kill off the bacteria on the cooking utensils. Not a earth shattering question just wondered if anyone else i bothered by/has come across this. Thanks.
