To Marinade or Not…

The suburbs are alive with the aroma of grilling, and a lot of those who are grilling do so after letting the target meat sit over night in a bath of the grill-dude’s chosen secret sauce or rub.

However, this article in the WaPo food section suggests that the value of the marinade may be more in the ritual than in the overnight soaking, and that to get real flavor the marinade time can be less than ten seconds accompanied with either an occasional dunk into or spooning of the sauce during the cooking process.

Take a look, and decide for yourself.
