The problem is that while Mr Kim might be able to get away with it, anyone who might contemplate emulating his technique might miss something he doesn't show and then what've you got? I wouldn't want to be sitting at that table. I've had food poisoning once, and thank you very much, I'm not interested in repeating that event, ever again. There are far too many incompetent talking heads with beautiful hair misleading people onto the path of poor food handling techniques, so when someone says: Hey, wait a minute, that's not a safe technique and we should look at the proper method, you counter with a: Hey, that's ok, he's been doing it for years and hasn't "killed"(my insert word) any one yet...Therefore.....
So, how do you like playing Devil's Advocate? Is it really making a contribution to our food safety awareness that many of us "beginner's" are trying to learn or do you just like to nitpick everything to a contrary point for the "fun" of it? If it is, please point it out because I guess in my poor old feeble mind, I'm missing your point. You need not respond, you'll just waffle with a "Oh, I didn't mean that, I, uh, was just saying.....". Gotcha pal.
In case you miss my point, most of us (well, ME for sure) consider food handling and food safety to be of paramount importance. I'll rely on the word as spoken by a "certified in more training sessions than we care to count" individual than someone who prefers to not bother to see the reasoning or thinks his/her way is cute and just so promotional on some airhead cooking show.
Now, I'll step off my soapbox with the knowledge that I will in no way use a technique that might endanger the health of one of my family or guests at one of my too infrequent cookout gatherings.
Admin, I stand ready for any admonishment you care to render.
