I read an article a couple of weeks ago (can't remember where now) that said for marinades intended to add flavor to things you plan on grilling, you can skip the "at least 4 hours ideally overnight" instructions and give the food a short soak in the marinade AFTER you've grilled it (I'd still season the food prior to grilling). Has anyone heard of doing this or done it? Does it work? Is it better to brush a marinade on while grilling even though I didn't do the overnight soak? I'm just trying to make up for my lack of planning this week....
