Is it safe to add some of the extra marinade used for marinating the meat during the the cooking process?

Meaning can I add more of the used marinade on the food as it is cooking to help add flavor and keep it moist?

    Yes you certainly can use the extra marinade DURING the cooking.  However, it is highly suggested that you boil the marinade a little bit to make sure that you are killing any bacteria.  The marinade has been sitting with raw meats, so there is a chance that it contains any of the foodborne illnesses that the raw meat has.  However, by cooking the marinade you will be doing exactly what cooking the meat is doing: killing the bacteria.  In no circumstance should you add the marinade AFTER cooking the meat, but as long as the marinade gets cooked too, you will be fine.

    As long as you are heating the marinade and everything it touches to above 140 degrees F (165 degrees F for chicken marinade), you should be safe because the high temperatures will kill any bacteria.
