Question: What is the most common utensil used for preparing barbecue side dishes?
B. Aluminum foil
C. Plastic wrap
D. Rinsed out coffee cans
Answer: B. Aluminum Foil. While the term "tin foil" still survives today, tin foil was replaced by aluminum foil around 1910, which was a more malleable form of foil that didn't leave a taste behind. Did you know that WWII left foil in high demand? The military dropped foil strips from bombers to confuse radar tracking systems. As supplies became short, families were encouraged to save foil strips for the effort. Take time to think about those who gave their all to us this weekend and then enjoy your barbecue.
