It's Memorial Day today, which certainly means some of you are planning to have a cookout. Whipping out the ol’ BBQ for the first time all year is no doubt exciting, but sometimes the "Grill Master" (as our dad nicknamed himself) become a little too wrapped up in said excitement AKA beer. And you know what happens as a result? Extra-crispy, black, covered-in-carcinogens food. Deeee-lish.

While some BBQ fans might enjoy a little char here and there, we highly doubt many, if any, prefer the "tastes like straight up ash" variety of food (unless they, too, became a little too wrapped up in all the "excitement"). Let these 10 extremely grilled foods be a friendly little reminder to watch those burgers on the grill, folks!

Possibly a kielbasa

Maybe these were hot dogs?

It seems like people are having a hard time with sausage-type meats

Chicken...what? How does this happen?

Okay, that is clearly a chicken. Or a black plastic shopping bag.

Again, with the sausages...

If you exert enough pressure on these, they would probably turn into diamonds.

Those are either burgers or maybe actual hockey pucks.
