Have you ever lied to a man about his grilling prowess?

Not all burgers are grilled equally.

"How's your burger?"

There might not be a more loaded question in the world of backyard grilling. Like the boys who dream of hitting the walk-off home run to end the World Series, quite a few men are in their own yards thinking that they might just have a shot at taking home the American Royal if they ever got a team together. Some use performance enhancers (timers, pellets), while others are still stuck in the minors (fetching their father-in-law a beer), but all are confident that when it comes time to fire it up, they're ready to deliver.

But not everyone is destined to be a pit master -- case in point, the

blackened hockey puck I recently choked down. I'm not one to crush

dreams, be they about rounding the bases or securing a novelty check

from the Kansas City Barbeque Society. So, when I was asked, the burger

was good.
